A website called www.uncommongoods.com is holding a Brooklyn Flag Design Contest where you can design a flag for your particular neighborhood. I can only imagine what kind of flags the parentally subsidized fly-over state fauxhemian “art” crowd in fake Brooklyn are going to design. I can see it now:
Upper Mid Greenpoint Heights - represented by a steaming small-batch-anti-corporation-support-your-local-coffee-shop $10 latte with the Apple logo drawn into the foam;
West Bushwick Gardens - represented by a kickball with the L Train “L” printed on it;
Lower Central South Bushwick - represented by an over-priced, beard hair laced Roberta’s pizza resting on a bed of kale;
Williamsburg “Proper” - represented by a Penny Farthing which has it’s front wheel made out of a rare cheese.
Here is my simple yet informative flag design that I’m entering to represent every neighborhood in still-normal Brooklyn below Prospect Park.
***And here is a bonus entry that some Ethan, Conrad or Buchannan can submit for Park Slope. This was actually sent to me by a diehipster.com reader a while back for another post but may as well be used for this contest.***
