On 19 February 2009, Emma Goodfellow wrote in the "Packet" that it was still time to vote:
People have been voting all month to whittle down 180 entries into a shortlist of ten, which will then be voted on by a panel of judges. All the designs are on display in the Municipal Buildings on The Moor and a large selection of them can also be viewed on this website by clicking on the link to the right, under the “related links” green heading.
Votes can be submitted until Saturday, February 28, when the shortlist will be passed to the judges to select an overall winner.

The selection of 41 flag proposals is here: - 24 images - 17 images

On 30 October 2009, the Falmouth Packet announced the winning flag - from 180 entries. The winner of the best overall flag was Claire Trotman, and the winner of the student section, Mollie Fielding. Based on the photo in the page mentioned above, the winning design is brightly coloured coastal scene with a lighthouse, sailboat, row of houses, fish, gulls, etc., as shown in the entry which can be viewed at
