Glendale residents asked to design flag

Contest focuses on village history

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        GLENDALE — Artists of all ages here are invited to show their community pride by designing a village flag.

        The Glendale Heritage Preservation society has launched a contest to see who can create a design that best captures this historic community's character.

        The winning design will be put onto flags that will fly on several village buildings and may even be mass produced so residents can fly them at home. The creator of the winning design will get $100.

        The idea for the flag design came from Stan Grueninger, a Glendale Heritage Preservation member who years ago designed Woodlawn's flag.

        He approached Glendale artist Jack Howard about working on a design, and Mr. Howard suggested village participation.

        “I just thought that it should be a community project,” he said. “There's a lot of talent in Glendale, and you could certainly get some innocent art, as I call it, from children that might very well be a winner.”

        The contest is open to Glendale residents and their immediate families. The deadline for entries is 3 p.m. March 24.
