Ranger Student Designs City Flag

Gerald Gustanson with the Ranger 100th Planning Committee spearheaded the Ranger City Flag and contest idea and LilliyAna Hernandez came up with the winning design.

A Centennial Celebration of Ranger’s Incorporation and Charter Signing will be the highlight of this weekend, April 5-7. One of the many events planned will be the adoption and dedication of an official Ranger City Flag.

A contest was held among Ranger students to create the design for the new flag. The students were given a guideline of items to be included in the flag. When the contest ended, 101 entries were received and LilliyAna Hernandez, a 6th grader at Ranger Middle School, had submitted the winning entry. Along with the recognition, LilliyAna will receive a season pass to Six Flags Over Texas. LillyAna is the daughter of Manny Hernandez and Ana Vasquez.

The new design will be unveiled Saturday, April 6th. Souvenir flags to be handed out along Main Street before the Centennial Parade. The parade starts at 10:00 a.m. A ceremony to adopt and dedicate the flag and recognize LilliyAna will be held at 12:30 p.m. in front of Ranger City Hall.
