After much discussion, the City of Winter Park, Florida, adopted the official flag:
"Winter Park has its first official city flag after the City Commission approved a design at the Oct. 24 meeting. Three designs were in the final judging by the Commission, two featuring a peacock on a three-colored background, and one more elaborate design featuring a building, arched brick window, peacock and some of the city’s flora. The Commission voted 4-1 to keep the flag design as it was and to approve it as the city’s official flag, ending a process that began on May 25. The flag is set to be printed within a few weeks, soon flying at City Hall for the first time in the city’s history."You can read the full story and see the new flag here: www.wpmobserver.com/news/2011/nov/02/city-picks-official-flag-design
