As of June 14 Community voting for a new Evansville flag has come to an end due to backlash received by the community.
"The overall support the flags were receiving and it was overwhelmingly negative, everywhere you looked, " said Mayor Winnecke.
44 news reached out to the flag project but was only left with a statement, saying the end to voting comes in response to a lack of support from the city, Mayor Winnecke said that's not the case.
"I suggested to the community volunteers on Friday afternoon that they let the voting play out in the month as planned and then if that negative trend continues then they ought to consider rejecting the flags that had been submitted for consideration and pause the entire process, so that was the understanding when we left Friday afternoon," said Winnecke.
According to the project more than 33-hundred people weighed in on the 4 different flags.
But calls to the Mayor's office and comments on social media show many aren't interested in choosing one of the designs.
"When they released the finalists for consideration a week ago, I became very concerned when the reaction was so so negative," said Winnecke.
The process is still up in the air and Winnecke said there's no rush.
"I think it's probably a good idea to let the dust settle and kind of reset some point in the future." said Winnecke.
The decision to continue the process is up to the Evansville flag project. They said they are still hopeful the river city will eventually come up with a design everyone can support.
