“Battle Flag” Voted Winner by Fans
The Winning Flag Design Received Over 61 Percent Of The Vote
DENTON – The Mean Green nation has spoken. The “Battle Flag” has been announced as the winner after an online vote to select the new flag that will fly on top of the 120-foot pole adjacent to Apogee Stadium and Interstate 35.
“I’d like to thank the fans for participating in the flag design vote,” said Vice President and Director of Athletics Wren Baker. “The installation process is underway and we are excited to have the University of North Texas Battle Flag flying high very soon.”
More than 61 percent of the first place votes went to the Battle Flag, with the North Texas flag and the diving eagle receiving the second-most first place votes with just over 19 percent. Nearly 13,000 votes were submitted in the online voting for the flag, which will be approximately 30 feet by 60 feet and is scheduled to be unveiled prior to the 2017 football season opener vs. Lamar on Sept. 2.
