Vermont Flag Redesign
🏴 3' x 4.5' redesigned Vermont flag. Durable polyester Vermont state flag with grommets and double stitched edges to reduce fraying.
✍️ The Design: For our "Better State Flag" series, we always start with a scan of historical flags of a state. Vermont has the famous "Green Mountain Boys" flag also used as the regimental flag of the Vermont National Guard. This flag has a lot going for it. Green field, blue canton with a spattering of 13 stars. So for my redesign, I kept the popular design but added one more star to highlight Vermont being the 14th state and then put the stars in an orderly pattern.
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.
Very happy. Came quickly and looks great.
I love the design of this flag. I think it should be the only official Vermont flag. With this specific product however, I wish the texture and material were a bit different. I have the flag hanging in my window currently, and it seems to be somewhat transparent and one side seems to be faded compared to the other. The texture is also very coarse, with visible lines in the fabric. Perhaps this method of manufacturing keeps the price down, and it was very affordable, but if there had been a higher price option for a more silky texture with a bolder, solid color appearance, I would've paid more for that.
