Better State Flags - Flags For Good

Better State Flags

Posted by Michael Green on

Statistically, if you live in the U.S., your state flag probably sucks. 

Back in 2014, a whole year before Roman Mars' TED talk mind you, I wrote a Medium blog that went a bit viral about how some U.S. State flags are awful designs. At the end, I ambitiously said I would redesign all state flags. Well 6 years later, I now own a flag company and I'm ready to pay up.

If you are from Texas, Arizona, Maryland, or another states with an already kick-ass flag, you might want to fight me right about now. Don't worry, I'm not touching those. We will happily sell them as-is. But for those of you in states with SOB (Seal on a bedsheet) flags like Minnesota, Maine or Louisiana, you are in luck! 

For the Flags For Good donation portion, we are busy selecting an organization or charity that benefits Native Americans since, well, this was their land in the first place.

What is that beautiful flag in the picture above? Well that is the North Star flag of Minnesota! We've gotten permission from the designers to print and sell it because it's awesome.

  • Saint Louis and/or Missouri please

  • Michigan should be two blue stripes for the Straits of Mackinac on a white background, flanked by two blue triangles for Lake Michigan and Lake Huron symmetrically pointing to the stripes.

    Montana’s flag should be big sky blue on top and green on the bottom, with a gold stripe separating them upon which is a gold diamond, for the Treasure state.

    New York’s flag should be a blue-white-orange horizontal tricolour with two orange stars on the white stripe.

  • Please do a redesign for the Idaho flag. The current one is horrible and reflects the horrible and old-fashioned beliefs of the state. We need a new flag to fly so those of us who are forward thinking have a symbol to rally around.

  • Michigan please. There’s so much great stuff on the seal – the supporters, the shield – that could make a good flag if it…tried to look like a flag

  • I would love to see a flag for Missouri. Come on we can do better.
