Committee votes to have Milwaukee Arts Board review new flag design

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A fresh update for Milwaukee's official city flag will have to wait. 

The City's Steering and Rules Committee voted 6-2 on Thursday to have the Milwaukee Arts Board review the design. 

Supporters call the "People's Flag" a symbol of pride and unity with the rising sun representing a new day. Three bars are a nod to the city's three rivers and founding fathers and gold pays homage to Milwaukee's brewing history. 

The committee plans to take up the matter later in 2018.
