Featuring six of the original EPCOT icons on the 12 flagpoles around Spaceship Earth to signify the finishing touches completed on the new entrance plaza.

As you can see from Zach Riddley’s post, the icons on Epcot flagpoles new flags pay homage to the original design philosophy of the park. The colors or palette of the icons on the new flags are inspired by the new PECOT neighborhoods. Even more Disney magic is the further color-coordination of the light ribbon around the rim of the plaza which is matched in the recently received fountain lighting! Together with the new main entrance soundtrack, revitalized architecture, bold green landscape and flowing fountain, the reimagined EPCOT is certainly coming together! Particularly with the continuing construction for both Innovention’s West and Innovention’s East as they too receiving the long await EPCOT revamp!
