Nixa creates competition for flag, seal redesigns

Posted online

The city of Nixa is rolling out a redesign competition of the city’s seal, flag and Police patch, with a $1,000 award going to the selected winner.
All submissions must be received by Oct. 2, according to the city’s website, and by Oct. 15, Nixa City Council will select the top unspecified number of submissions. If a clear winner cannot be determined by Oct. 24, council members may choose to appoint a judging committee or open voting to the public, according to the competition's website.
Submission rules include:
• The seal should reflect the values, history and future of Nixa.
• The badge does not need to be completely redesigned. At minimum, the badge should be updated to integrate the city seal design.
• The flag does not necessarily need to integrate the city’s seal.
• Redesigning the city logo is not necessary.
Each contestant may submit up to three design variations for each element. Finalists will be invited to Nixa’s State of the Community Dinner in November, where the mayor plans to announce the winner.
Nixa Public Information Officer Drew Douglas could not be reached for additional comment by deadline.
An attempt to revamp Springfield’s flag also has been underway. A group called the Springfield Identity Project unveiled a new concept this year, though the grassroots effort has not yet resulted in a presentation before city officials.
