Our salute to the beloved neighborhood of Northeast! The NE Mpls flag was developed by local bank president, Walter Rassmussen in 1973. Walter's vision for a park-like parking lot next to his bank needed a community flag to celebrate neighborhood pride. The winner of a flag design contest was crafted by a ten-year-old Northeast kid named Tony Di Giovanni. Rasmussen celebrated the unveiling of the flag with a polka festival in the parking lot park, and throughout 1975 he went around gifting flags to various civic institutions like the Police Department and the Edison High marching band.
