|Look briefly. This flag isn't pretty.|
Recognize the figure in front of all the converging rays? New Orleans' own Andrew Jackson on horseback just as he is posed in Jackson Square in this fair city. Jacksonville couldn't even come up with it's own image of Old Hickory. To make matters more derivative, Jacksonville's official nickname is "The River City." Really? The only one in the whole wide world? That's a unique distinction. Not "The Bad Flag City?"
Compare Jacksonville's flag to New Orleans'.
|A thing of beauty: New Orleans' flag.|
Plenty of city flags are hung off front porches in New Orleans. Probably far more than are hung off the front porches in Jacksonville, FL.
My favorite city flag? This one:
|Chicago. Now those are nice proportions.|
