Washington Flag Redesign
🏴 3' x 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!
Single-sided flags are one piece of our durable fabric with full color on both sides. These are great for indoor use AND outdoor poles because they are light-weight and catch a breeze easily. If the design has text, it will be mirrored on the back. If there are no options, this is the default way we make our flags.
Double-sided flags are three layers of fabric that allow zero light through. They are therefore heavier, and work great as indoor display flags. You can definitely use them outside, but it takes more wind to get going and they could damage flagpoles in extreme wind conditions due to their added weight. Any text on the design will read correctly on both sides.
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!
