Another bumpity bump, for those of you who have yet to cast a vote. We've got 64 votes so far, lets see if we can get that up a bit.

Poll closes on 11/29, so don't miss out!

Being a purist I have to vote for #1 or #2.The comment on a "secret society" (or maybe even a covert reference to "The Artist Formerly Known as Prince") clinches the deal for me. That said, blue instead of yellow would be lovely; it would match my canvas.

Naa, I donít think so. Weíre just getting it narrowed down. I know people have been getting cranky about it, but I donít think three rounds of voting over the course of two months is really all that much to ask.

Not sure how this should have been handled. However asking people to vote means lots of folks will not get the one they want. Like asking what color you want your new car and than being told it only comes in black. How else to decide, just pick one, tell us the cost if say we buy enough for everyone. Then try and raise the money by member donation And give everyone one.

Greetings,
Mr. JP. Yup, lots of members BUT far fewer active members. I'd guess less than 100 on a regular basis...

I think for an organization that doesn't really have any official infrastructure to handle this sort of deal, we're doing okay. We don't have a president, treasurer, secretary, or procurement associate, or an established procedure for how to do this sort of thing, after all. It's all being shuffled forward by a few volunteers that are interested in doing so.

We just wanted to make sure that anyone who wanted to give their input had a good chance to do so. Sure, most people won't get their first choice, but that's how democracy tends to work, it seems. Hopefully we end up with the largest possible group of people that are at least somewhat happy with the design.

After this poll is wrapped up, we'll get together with the manufacturer, nail down a rough number of orders, and figure out the best way to get them. It might work out that you'll all be able to order individually from the factory, and it might work out that money will need to be raised in advance. We'll figure that all out in the next step.

I think you're probably right RT, which makes our 70 something voters actually not a bad turnout. Hopefully we can get up over 100. The poll is still open until 11/29. Thanks for voting!

1 or 7 works for me. But regardless, I'd fly any of them. An outstanding effort! Now if we could all vote for the best engine oil...

Did Betsy Ross have this much difficulty? Thanks to all of the forum vexillologists for their time and effort and as a true democracy would have it, I will buy the flag voted on by the majority.

Totally irrelevant (remember it is me posting) but Betsy Ross didn't have these problems because the story of her sewing it up while sitting in that rocking chair was created by her family. They even threw George Washington into the mix which was nice and made for an awesome painting. Good family story, just not true. Now, the reason for this post:

The real designer was a naval flag designer who, pay attention to this part, requested to be paid with a "Quarter cask of public wine".

Just sayin'.
