"The new flag has a red, six-pointed star on a white field, a yellow field opposite it, and two blue S-shaped lines with a white stripe in between. The six points of the star represent the city's six council districts, while the blue and white lines evoke the river at the heart of South Bend, our physical and virtual connectivity, and our industrial roots.Dave Fowler, 21 March 2016
The call for submissions encouraged designs that use the city's traditional color palette of red, blue, yellow, and white, and the flag emphasizes blue and yellow hues that correspond to the Indiana state flag.
The previous city flag, a plain yellow field with the city seal superimposed on it, dates to South Bend's 1965 centennial. The city will continue to use its current official seal.
"In honor of South Bend's Sesquicentennial, the SB150 committee and the City of South Bend seek to introduce a new flag for the City of South Bend. The goal is to create a design that captures the spirit of our city's past, present, and future. This flag will enable the community to proudly display its love of South Bend in a dynamic, creative and symbolic way. It will be a flag that both unifies residents and speaks to visitors."

The city website still uses its new flag, not the old one. The city basically
bathes in the new flag, therefore, I am confident that the new city flag will
not be relinquished and that this was just a mistake done by whoever is tasked
with replacing the flags at that entrance.
