SALT LAKE CITY — After receiving feedback in August, the candidates for Utah's new state flag have been narrowed down to just 20.

A sneak peak of 19 of the 20 candidates was shared in a tweet Wednesday evening by State Sen. Daniel McCay. The Utah Department of Cultural and Community Engagement added an addition flag on Thursday.

Originally more than 5,700 entries were received from 29 counties, representing almost 200 of the 346 zip codes in the state.

Afterwards, as much as 30 submissions were presented for public feedback in August from the original batch.

Later in the fall, the legislature will eventually have to decide the winner of the 20 selected, replacing the current century old flag.
