🏴 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.
🖨 ↩️ We print this flag as a one-sided print and make sure that the back has ample (around 90%) bleed-through.
🌏 Created and shipped in the most Earth-conscious way we can.
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.
