Bill to replace state flag moves forward

Local News

A bill that would replace the Utah state flag took a step forward at the Capitol Friday. 

House Bill 292 is inspired by the group, “Organization For A New Utah Flag.”

According to the group’s website, the proposed design tells the story of Utah and its history through seven symbolic details.

Lawmakers say they want to create a commission to study a potential new state flag, but some say they don’t want to change the current state flag.

The bill now heads to the Senate for consideration.
