🏴 3' x 4.5' redesigned Massachusetts flag with grommets and double stitched edges to reduce fraying.
✍️ 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.
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.
The flag looks great! I couldn't be happier to finally have a flag to fly for my state grounded in good design and purpose.
Here in Massachusetts, not only is our flag a seal on a blanket, it's — surprise — super racist & problematic too. This design is simple & elegant, drawing from the past for inspiration (the pine tree is a callback to the original flag for the Colony of New England) & rounding it off with simple but meaningful iconography. Turn out we're getting an official redesign of our flag & state seal now — would be totally happy to see this in the running to become official. I'd fly it proudly! :0
We didn't know what to put up when we bought our first home here in Massachusetts, but then we happened across this flag. It's been such a great addition to our spot and we can't wait to order more Flags for Good!
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
This flag design is fantastic and so much better than the official MA flag. Only reason for 4 out of 5 is the material is thinner than I thought it was going to be but the flag itself seems good quality and perfect for my needs.
