Seattle Street Flags

by Valerie Porter

Location: 40th Ave & University St.

One thing that I’ve noticed about Seattle’s urban environment that can be found on any street, are flags. Street Flags are located all throughout the city of Seattle on high street post. These street flags are used year round and constantly change. They are used for aesthetic appeal, to decorate the city. Street flags are made out of various materials. I’ve seen some of the flags made out of wood and others made out of a plastic material. I’ve observed street flags to have artistic shapes and others to have the typical rectangular shape. Street flags have many uses: wayfinding, art, promotion, and representing an area and people.

Micro Urbanism

The term “micro-urbanism” describes small-scale urban spaces and design interventions that enable a wide variety of activities, events, processes and functions to take place. It also involves ways to reinterpret the urban landscape. As a class project, the purpose for creating this Guide is to bring attention to aspects of our everyday environment that are important but often neglected parts of the urban experiences.
