Those of us who live in or have visited Wheeling know that it is an incredible city with plenty of character and history. Recently, Wheeling’s flag has been gaining quite a bit of attention for being one of the best city flags in the country. This is due in part to its unique design and receiving top marks in a survey conducted by North American Vexillological Association (NAVA).
The survey included 312 flags that participants rated on a scale of 0 to 10. Over 2,800 people completed the NAVA flag survey from Sept. 1 through Nov. 30. Wheeling’s flag was rated the #8 best flag, with a score of 7.52 out of 10. Wheeling was one of 46 flags included in the survey that received an “A” rating.
