Springfield has had a new official city flag for the past 9 months. The new flag was rose in March 2022.
The City of Springfield website describes the flag as such, “The new flag features a dark blue and white eight-pointed emblem, called the “Compass Crown” in the center. The compass point design represents Springfield’s role as a crossroads to the nation. The crown is a reference to Springfield’s nickname, Queen City of the Ozarks. Three four-pointed stars represent three elements of the city: innovative spirit, connection with nature and Ozarks culture. A broad white horizontal stripe is meant to symbolize the Ozark Plateau, on which Springfield was built, and Route 66. A light blue background represents Ozarks water and skies.”
