The Village of Cleves, Ohio, has adopted a flag for 1 year. According to a
Youtube video of a city council meeting, some people are concerned that the flag
represents the "three rivers community" but that residents of other villages
might want to be included or not included in the flag. After 1 year the decision
will be to revise the flag with logos to include or omit other villages being
represented and to re-adopt the flag without a time limit.

Text from the article:
"Ben Mitchell, a senior at Taylor High School, began designing a flag over the summer as a fun hobby. After enjoying the project and hoping to see the final design used, Ben took his flag to the Cleves Council. He attended three Village Council meetings in total to present his flag, make adjustments, and finally get it approved.
The Cleves Village Council voted on February 8, 2023, to adopt his flag for the 2023 calendar year. It will fly over the police station and building that houses the Village Council chambers."
According to the image in the article, the light blue band is "the great Miami," the white is "the white Water," the dark blue is "the Ohio River," and the vertical gray line is "the Harrison tomb," and the gray curve is "the canal tunnel."
