Best U.S. State Flagswestofohio
The Top Ten
My life began in Maryland, very proud of this states flag. Even though I don't live there I'm still proud of the beauty and design of this flag. Always thought it was unique, the colors and the history of the states all brought together, and it made me proud to display my hometown flag at the different Army post I've lived at. Oh, and to be sure, it makes a pretty neat looking bow tie too.
Most don't realize it because of the color combination throws people off but the flag is steeped in history from combining the founding families of MD as well as sympathizing both the North and the South during the Civil War.
This is a flag you can wear proud. And it truly is the best there is.. 2nd to the United States Flag of course!
With the amount of taxes I pay it BETTER be the best flag. It sure is the most expensive. *evil grin*V 82 Comments
Shut the up this is best flag - ALANSANCH
Texas is best
Texas is the best that’s all there is to it. ; )
Texas’s flag is the best! Out of all the flags here, this flag is the most American. It’s only colors are red, white, and blue! And finally, it has a star on it that represents the state. It might not be the American flag, but it is the best and most American flag of all 50 us states!V 11 Comments
Beautiful. - Luckys
Perfect - Chankun
Incredible flag. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy
Our flag has history, how is maryland number one, it flag looks like it makes no sense at allV 22 Comments
The simple, to the point design, while easily distinguishable, with a culturally relevant symbol makes this flag an absolute win!
Simple, beautiful and it honors our native people!
This flag is the most pleasing to the eye no doubt. The symbolism of the rising sun, as well as the call back to spanish conquistadors with the colour combine to make this the best flag.
Should be #1 for several contributing factors:
*A different, popping color scheme
*Simplicity (I'm looking at you, Maryland)
*A nod to "The Sunshine State", a secondary nickname to "The Land of Enchantment"
Simple without being simplistic, meaningful without being complex
Cool and meaningful, yet coherent...
Many state flags are simply an existing seal slapped onto a monochrome background. Arizona's flag is technically simpler than many, but contains far more depth.
The stripes emanating from the star represent both the climate of the state and the Spanish legacy. Their number also ties back to the thirteen original states. The star's copper color reflects its history in mining as well as standing out from the other colors. The blue bottom of the flag represents the Colorado River, a dominant geographic feature, and also serves as a counterpart to the warm colors emanating from the star.
What you end up with is a flag with only four colors, simple to draw from memory and recognize from a distance, but also one impossible to disconnect from the state it represents.
It's simple enough that a 1st grader can draw it from heart, and iconic enough that even a foreigner would invoke the image of Arizona based on the design, without any words on the flag itself. I'm looking at you, California. KEEPING THE BEAR WOULD HAVE BEEN ENOUGHV 9 Comments
I didn't know much about the States (I'm not from America, I have never been) but I have only just learnt about the flags and that the states have capitals. Nice flag and tells you which state it is.
Well balanced, without clashing colors or extraneous details, and actually has the state name on it. Not to mention California is the most beautiful, powerful, populous, and productive state in the Union by a landslide margin.
The California flag is awesome! It has a cool bear on it and it has a lot of color! I especially like that it says "California" on it so you don't have to guess what state it is! I was surprised that California was so low on the list though... Oklahoma has a really cool flag too!
Not even up for debate the California has the best flag considering it is the best state in the country. Bears are super epic and we have LA and san fran lets go!V 5 Comments
Great colors and a nice design.
It's elegant and finest.
Easily recognizable then flying or hanging. Simple and well conceived.
Simple and beautiful.
I love it but why is there so many stars it's one state
Best one because it is unique.
Ohio is the coolest gosh darn (pardon my French) flag in the world!
I grew up here, always loved the flag. I also lived in CO, NM, and CA. All great flags. And NY, not so great.V 6 Comments
The flag is plain, simple and frank; just the way a flag should be. Colorado will be the best state, besides, Denver has the highest quality of life in the US.
Downright awesome flag - Cohaki
Colorado has the best flagV 5 Comments
Wow controversial what would we do without you history - RawIsgore
Most underrated flag, trolls the misandrists - Maddox121
This is my home state and the people of Mississippi (white and black) like their state flag. The rabble-rousing around the nation over the Rebel flag is a media launched campaign attempting to capitalize on a tragedy to advance a political cause. Those advocating it should be ashamed of themselves.
I don't like this one because it has the confederate flag on it. I feel as though it is unfair that because the flag had the confederate flag on it before it had meaning I dislike it but I can't bring myself to get past the awful things that have been said under the confederate flag.V 4 Comments
What? This is the Norther Ireland Flag copied - Niall Ashraf, flag enthusiast
Actually Alabama had it first.
Northern Ireland 1921
By far the least creative, and maybe even worst flag in America, EVER. A lot of people forgot Hawaii's past, so Hawaii may be sued one day.
American State. Supporter of the Queen. Great combination.
It has a Union Jack - TheChipotleAnt
I love this flag
This one and New Mexico are my favorites - westofohio
Indiana's flag is really good, and would be even better without the name. For sure one of the best.
Love it!V 3 Comments
Yeah might not be number one, but still pretty cool. Some look so poorly drawn (Illinois), and why do some have their found dates, that doesn't belong on a flag. Also I agree it so underrated.
The most underrated flag. The colors and designs together create perfection. Of the older state flags that are similar, this one is the best. - GhostBird
Seriously? Not even on the list yet? PA's flag is old-fashioned, but is extremely pretty. I rate it in at least top 5.
I love this flag and this state!V 1 Comment
This flag has a seal on it, but this is a simple seal so the flag is meh
Nice flag - catlvr
Easily identifiable when flying without having to read some funky emblem on a blue background.
It's the only green flag, and is pretty basic and well designed.
Stars with a dark blue background there is something about this flag that amazes me - RawIsgore
My grandmother designed this flag. I don't think she approved of the addition of "Oklahoma". It looked much nicer without. It's the best in my book!
If you've never seen the Oklahoma flag, take this time. Check it out and tell me it's not the coolest.
Would look better and be a cool flag without "Oklahoma" in there.
By accident, I put Virginia a second time.
We are going there in 8 days. Dec. 16
Virginia beach is my hometown and I'm here right now and its insulting that you give our flag a number14 for a grade... SERIOUSLY! UNCOOL PEOPLE!
I want Virginia in 2nd place!V 6 Comments
This is just the confederate flag with the seal of Georgia in it.
If you are a southerner and know your history and also do not want to offend anyone, you will LOVE this flag
Yup, easily recognizable when flying. Maybe not so much when hanging but at least it's not a big round seal in the middle of a blue field like far too many others.
Its clean and not bland with a message on the ribbon. I would much rather have this flag the colorado one or the california flag over the national flag.
Like France but American
Iowa is better than you
Aw sweet... 35th... - codydoestuff
Best flag ever
A logo with the Spanish flag in the background not bad - RawIsgore
A beautiful state with a great culture and history, however, its flag is one of the most least attractive of the state flags. They should make it zigzag to look similar to the Spanish flag of the 1700s.
Woo hoo! We're #11! I can honestly think of some below us that shouldn't be.
First state right? Or am I wrong well I’m saying it’s the first state so if I’m wrong I’m going to pretend I never got a reply - RawIsgore
In my opinion Nevada has the worst flag. Not only does it have a seal with a blue background on it, but it’s in the corner.
Battle born and ready
The eagle and the stars are my favorite part of the flag.
Actually I like it - RawIsgore
Just another badly drawn flag.
2 flags inside a flag yay - RawIsgore
I feel sad for Utah, it was the #5 worst state flag for Thanksgiving 2013.
This one is good. - Swellow
Can you not make your background white - RawIsgore
I live there
Massachusetts < Maryland
Maryland has the most iconic and greatest flag.
Pretty - RawIsgore
Funny how the tiniest state has one of the BEST flags!
I've always thought the Rhode Island flag looked so pretty. California is a close second though
As a truly nautical state, this is most suitable.V 1 Comment
Got some European colors and some California - RawIsgore
The colors are pleasing, the stars look nice, and the wording is much more badass than other state flags. The seal design is a bit outdated, but it was designed over a century ago which brings a classic feel without it being too stale.
Dope Grizzle Bears enough said.
Yellow - RawIsgore
The fact that the two sides of the flag are different make it really cool. - VGCI_Plays
Pretty mountains - RawIsgore
Looks like Maine but yellow - RawIsgore
Looks like the upper peninsula but ok - RawIsgore
A lil hunter dude throwing up the deuces and some dope animals. if you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you - a little specific but its not wrong
Looks good but that sun - RawIsgore
Maybe it's just because I lived there for a while, but, it's easily recognizable on a white background and a reliable test for checking your eyesight if you can read the letters at the bottom from various distances.
So pretty and represents much!
It just looks so cool :D! - Co0lk1d25V 1 Comment
So amazing that we don’t even show the flag - RawIsgore
What is this flag - RawIsgore
Love this flag! So classic and detailed oriented.
Actually good logo can be a little bigger - RawIsgore
This flag is awesome! Why is it number 50th (last) just why. Look at the details the meanings the ship the everything. Each thing on it stands for something. It's shape is also good and it's even a rich state. It was a colonie and I truly love colonies
Agreed! Even though it is just a seal pasted on a flag I still really like it. - VGCI_Plays
Plants - RawIsgore
To much blue background - RawIsgore
Whats Up Maine
I love maine
A little boring. - VGCI_Plays
Looks like it was designed by Evel Knievel, or a 1st grader.
The Mount Rushmore state built only to have a place to go in South Dakota - RawIsgore
WORST STATE EVER!
Massachusetts > New York
Wow we are almost last I mean is it really that hard to make the logo bigger you have plenty of room - RawIsgore
VT's seal includes lots of design and makes a great flag. - VGCI_Plays
Its cool bois
