Now we just need to blue to represent something and the red to represent something and I think we've got ourselves a city flag!

I like the idea of blue representing the river.

And the red could represent the blood of those who fought and died for Kansas City's freedom during the Great American War of Spain... or something cool like that.

I mean lets just roll with this idea, we could have a meeting on Halloween where a bunch of Kansas Citians dress as roman gladiators waving the new flag. We then vow to siege any city that Amazon picks if it isn't us. It shows heart and spirit

We will take HQ2 by force if necessary, yes.

While I'd be fine with either of the designs I've submitted here, I think I actually like the first one a bit better....

The fountain is just framed better IMO. I can see the appeal of the exact triangles of the second one though.

Agreed, I liked the framing better on the first one. The angle on your white space traced the angle of the lower edges of the fountain emblem. Going with the triangles loses that framing and almost has a little too much white space at the top, IMO.

Regardless, I think both of your fountain flags look a lot better than the city's current one. A flag that continues with the current fountain symbol probably has better political legs than one that is a from-scratch redesign, since the standing objection to that type of thing is that there is a limited budget to cover existing priorities and there would be costs updating letterheads, websites etc. Walking around downtown, I see the fountain even forged into the steel of many manhole covers--not that I would ever expect those to be replaced even if the city ditched the fountain symbol someday.
