Sioux Falls City Council approves city flag

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - The city of Sioux Falls officially has its own flag.

The city council approved the design for a flag in a meeting Tuesday night. All eight councilors voted in favor of the banner.

Organizers began pushing for a city flag four years ago, but the effort picked up momentum in recent months.

John Snyder, who was a part of the organization that spearheaded the initiative to get a flag for Sioux Falls, tells KSFY News they are working with the city's facilities managers to work on getting the right size of flag for indoor and outdoor facilities.

They also need to figure out exactly how many flags are needed for the city.

The flag will start flying outside all city buildings once more funding is acquired. Officials say this will come at no cost to taxpayers, as it will be privately funded.

Those feeling inclined to donate to speed up this process can donate on the Sioux Falls Design Center's website or send the Design Center a check in the mail at 108 W. 11th St. Sioux Falls, SD 57104.

Be sure to note on the website or the check that the donation is for the flag.
