Champy, michigans and the Macdonough Monument are among the images suggested to represent the City of Plattsburgh.

With discussion underway about efforts to beautify the city, the Press-Republican asked Facebook readers what they would like to see on an official city flag.

Here’s a sampling of ideas:

Khristina Heffernan: “Something the represents harmony of the city”

Erin Hunt: “Champy”

Elizabeth Rowe: “The Monument”

Michelle Lynn: “STOP HATE”

Bill Bessette: “Champy rampant, over a field of Michigans. Need a snow plow in there somewhere too.”

John Smith: “Have to have the monument o it”

Dennis Maye: “the lake”

Sarah King: “Let kids come up with designs like they do for the battle of plattsburgh”

Mary E Martineau: “Adirondacks”

Aaron Stanley: “...Hold a contest for designs. Choose designs from entrants and have them professionally ‘realized’ then put it to a community vote. Sure there will be costs involved but they’ll be minimal when spread out across the tax base. Plattsburgh has a rich history and a bright future so any city flag will need to represent so much.”

Greg Cowan: “Maybe a symbol of the battle of Plattsburgh or the airbase.”

Robert L. Pardy: “An outline of the defenders from 1812!!”

Joanne Hebert: “a flag w/ the McDonaugh Monument on it or the battle of dear home town!”

Craig William: “a michigan”

Bill Gough: “Certainly a portion of it devoted to Valcour Island.”

Jay Bleeker: “Did anyone say crow? Maybe a big crow, and it’s perched on the shoulder of Thomas McDonough... And they’re standing on the steps of city hall. Flexing. Both of them.”
