Lake Eola Heights Historic District is searching for creative minds. A neighborhood committee has been formed to select a neighborhood brand/logo by choosing a submission for flag designs. Neighborhood flags have been adopted in other cities successfully and aims to bring a sense of community and neighborhood pride. The prompt for sketches and themes submitted is, “What do you believe symolizes Lake Eola Heights Historic District?”

Submissions can be as simple as a sketch, a theme or explaining what you believe symbolizes Lake Eola Heights Historic District. We hope that the neighborhood’s rich history and sense of community will be sources of inspiration. A sketch is the preferred choice of submission, but it does not have to be “professional.”

Please send all submissions and ideas to LEHflagcommittee@gmail.com. To the right is an example of a flag design submitted by Jeff Thompson and Raymond Cox. Here’s how they explained their concept:

“The overall concept is a stylized roundabout with four sabal palms in the middle. The thinking is this is the only “common space/amenity” in our neighborhood, so we chose to celebrate it. The font is copperplate bold to match the historic plaques and/or neighborhood logo for continuity.”
