More about the design:

The Milwaukee People’s Flag Cozy is based on the People’s Flag of Milwaukee. The flag design, called “Sunrise over the lake,” was created by Robert Lenz, and was declared the People’s Flag of Milwaukee on June 14th, 2016. From the Milwaukee People’s Flag website: “The sun rising over Lake Michigan symbolizes a new day. The light blue bars in its reflection represent the city’s three rivers (Milwaukee, Menomonee, Kinnickinnic) and three founding towns (Juneau Town, Kilbourn Town, Walker’s Point). Gold represents our brewing history and white represents peace.” To find out more, check out the People’s Flag website:
