Street Banner Program
About the Street Banner Program
The City of Richmond’s street banner program is a civic beautification initiative that strives to engage community members to submit creative and visually appealing designs taken from around Richmond. Banner designs are selected through an annual contest that is open to all members of the community. Entries received in the banner contest celebrate the places, activities, and experiences that make Richmond so beautiful and unique.
Vote for your favourite banner design
The top 20 semi-final designs, as selected by our panel of community judges, will be open for voting on the City's Facebook page on starting October 11, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. Vote for your favourite design by choosing up to ten designs (one from each theme) and LIKING the design on Facebook. Voting closes on October 24 at 5:00 pm
This year, we received over 400 individual banner design entries and wanted to share the great artwork we received by creating an online gallery of all the submissions. To view the gallery pages, please visit the contest website, and click on
Please note: all artist’s names have been removed to respect their privacy and each banner design has been randomly assigned a number from 1-424.
Past Banner Designs
Looking to own a copy of your favourite previously displayed street banner design? Past year’s banners and recycled banner bags are available for sale from the City's Parks Department. To place your order, please visit the Parks main reception Monday to Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm. Banner orders can be paid for and picked up at the Parks main reception located in the Community Services building at the City of Richmond’s Operations Yard, 5599 Lynas Lane. Availability is subject to change.
Please note that the banners for sale are from previously displayed collections, meaning that they have been up in the elements (sun, rain, wind, and snow). Because of this, banner quality and appearance may vary.
