The Portola’s Getting a Neighborhood Flag! The Portola neighborhood is hosting an open competition for all residents to create a Portola Garden District flag. The flag will hang proudly in Burrows Pocket Park, along San Bruno Ave, and in local businesses and residences.
We Stand Together. As a diverse neighborhood recently united after years of being split into different supervisor districts, we’re excited to build upon the city’s recent recognition of the Portola’s identity as San Francisco’s Garden District.
But I’m Not an Artist . . . Don’t worry! This Thursday, 11/2 from 5:30-8:30, there’ll be professional designers to help advise and workshop your flag ideas. This competition is about highlighting the Portola’s values through a shared visual symbol - if you bring the inspiration, they’ll bring the artistry.
Let’s Do It! You can find more details about the design competition here and download a PDF with specific instructions and a template to either draw, collage, or digitally paste your design. Completed designs can be turned in to the Portola Branch Library or submitted online.
Submission Period Opens: 10/26
Submission Deadline: 12pm on 11/15
Voting Period: 11/16-11/30
