That's at least according to the results of a new survey by the North American Vexillology Association (NAVA), an organization of flag enthusiasts and scholars.In 2022, the group asked its members to score 312 flags that US cities have adopted or redesigned since 2015. 2,850 people participated, rating each flag on a scale of 0 to 10 (with 10 being the best.) The ratings were averaged and then converted to letter grades, from F to A+. How Did Wisconsin Cities Do? Not well. Seven of the nine Wisconsin flags rated received Fs: De Pere Franklin Janesville Kenosha River Falls South Milwaukee West Allis And they're not alone! Nearly half of all flags (143 in total) received Fs, and the average grade wasn't much better: a D+.
