Wheeling Recognized Nationally for Outstanding Flag Design


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.
