Washington Flag Redesign
🏴 3' x 4.5' Redesigned Washington State flag. Durable polyester Washington flag with grommets and double stitched edges to reduce fraying.
✍️ The Design: Since DC took the Washington family crest, I decided to take the flag of George Washington's military HQ and use that as a base. Then, with a little help from Tiktok, I decided to incorporate a light to dark green gradient that can be found so much in the nature around Washington. The five stars, representing the five active volcanoes in Washington, make a subtle "W" in the sky and the mountains mirror their shape.
A few months after starting Flags For Good, I realized I could fulfill my childhood dream of redesigning bad US State flags. So that's what I'm doing!
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.
We print this flag as a one-sided print and make sure that the back has ample (around 90%) bleed-through.
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.
Love the design of this, from inspiration and symbology, to community input, to thought process and final design decisions. This should fly in so many places. The flag as delivered has vibrant colors and crisp lines, and it's an excellent addition to our backyard space. Oh and a great project/enterprise as well. Cheers!
I got the redesigned Washington flag for my son's birthday. He and I both are interested in geography and flag design, and in fact I play Seterra for geography practice and have a custom flag quiz for state flags called "stupid and blue" to memorize all the bad blue flags. Washington's flag doesn't fall into that category, but alas, it is a boring design with it's only redeeming quality being the only green state flag. This redesigned flag was a hit with my son who now has it hanging on his bedroom wall. Thanks for the fast service and the nice looking flag!
Great flag! Captured Washington state! So happy with this purchase and my other purchases!
