Description of the flag

The new flag is described in the meeting packet as follows: https://www.raytown.mo.us

Honors the old flag while modernizing the look and incorporating additional elements of the City's legacy

Encourages a renewed and refreshed sense of civic and community pride in time before Raytown's 75th birthday in 2025

Represents progress and change of the people and places in Raytown

Red and blue reference the current city flag, as well as the US and Missouri flags. Additionally, it touches on our pride in Raytown and Kansas City sports teams

The three white lines represent the historic trails that intertwine with
our City's story

The anvil is iconic to the imagery of Raytown and its namesake, blacksmith William Ray

A photo of the flag was posted on the VAKC Wordpress page: https://vexikc.wordpress.com/2019/02/20/5/

I found a few small images (on big photos) of the flying flag:

Attached is my drawing of the flag. I wasn't sure of the color of the text.
