Regardless of what the reasoning is behind the redesign of the flag – there are going to be those who love it, those who see no need for it, and those who don’t like. That being said, I do like the simplicity of it. After reading what everything means, it makes sense – clearly. Do I agree with those who posted saying that it does not depict Edmonton… to a degree. But our city is ever changing, and those are things (that are in the flag) are constant. The economy, our diversity, and everything else is changing. Essentially what I enjoy the most is the simplicity, the beautiful sky to represent the northern lights, our river, our grass and the beautiful sun we are blessed with for most of the year. Those are most definitely things that many Canadians cannot say they get to have but, living in Edmonton, we do.
