City of Aitkin flag design contest winner announced
by Brielle Bredsten Jun 19, 2019

On Flag Day June 14, Aitkin County Friends of the Arts (ACFOA) and the city of Aitkin announced Chip Borkenhagen as the winner of the official flag design contest.

Borkenhagen commented, My thoughts on this design were that (as enamored as I am with steamboats) I wanted to get to the essence of Aitkin as it is now - and our future. We are known for our woodlands, lakes, and rivers, and its our natural environment heritage that will keep our area alive and moving forward. The effort was to keep this design clean, fresh, and just a little different than many other cities. This flag will hopefully inspire us to work towards re-inventing our city, making it more economically and environmentally healthy.
