This flag design was proposed by Ricardo Tomasz. Its redesign (right) incorporates good flag design principles, as well as meaningful symbolism. It includes sunrise/set for hope, waves for the Pacific ocean, and 5 red circles to represent the 5 districts of L.A. County.
The circle is also the shape of equality (such as King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table).

Why Los Angeles Needs A New Flag
As was stated in the recent online petition:
Los Angeles needs a new flag. There is no doubt that we are one of the greatest, most influential counties in the world. Even the New York Times admitted, “Los Angeles is enjoying a renaissance with a burgeoning art, fashion and food scene that has become irresistible to the culturally attuned.”
