🏴 3' x 4.5' redesigned Massachusetts flag with grommets and double stitched edges to reduce fraying.
Most state flags suck. So we are doing something about it.
✍️ The Design: For the Better State Flag of Massachusetts, I began with the historic flag of New England in all of its bad-ass-ness. The pine tree on white is pulled from that and a white base is a nod to the current flag of Mass. Then I added a blue fly edge to represent the bay and 6 white stars in the fly stripe to represent the 6th state to join the union.
🧵 Our flags are durable 200D polyester (most flags you'll find on the internet are cheap ~75D). In our testing, we selected 200D as the perfect flag material; anything heavier doesn't fly well and the "back" doesn't get enough ink, anything lighter feels cheap and wont last very long.
🏳️ Each flag is folded by hand on our dining room table and ready to be used on a flag pole, boat, hung on a wall, or to proudly march with.
❓ "What about the back side?" We print all of our flags as one-sided prints and make sure that the back has ample bleed-through. That way the design is beautiful and visible on both sides. If you want a double sided flag, contact us!
🌏 Created and shipped in the most Earth-conscious way we can.
🤝 The Flags For Good Promise: With all of our "Better State Flags" we are donating 10% of each flag to the First Nations Development Institute who improves economic conditions for Indigenous peoples through direct financial grants, technical assistance & training, and advocacy & policy.
I really like this redesign for the Massachusetts State Flag. Even though it is in the works for the state flag to be changed, this rendition of a new flag is connected to the state’s history and as a former Bay Stater and UMass Alumnus, I could see this being used at every tailgate and function. A great start to
