The Top Ten
Why the hell is this number one? I really, really hope this is a joke because this flag is hideous. It's color scheme is wack and it is just downright awful. I would be very suprised if people didn't vote for this as a joke - 10Jackson
Literally the best
Cool colors and a medevil flair
Hands down best flagV 66 Comments
Incredible flag. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy
Our flag has history, how is maryland number one, it flag looks like it makes no sense at all
It's always looked the best to me. It's subtle in design, yet shows all that it needs to. It's classy and looks good on a t-shirt. How many other flags have that quality?
For those who think this is a palm tree, it is not. This is a PALMETTO tree (this the nickname The Palmetto State) and they are native to our state. The wood of the tree is very soft and makes for good defensive structures because it absorbs cannon shot instead of shattering. This is the simplest and most aesthetically pleasing flag of all.V 20 Comments
Wrong! Move it 3 places higher, and then you might not be thought of as a retard.
A perfect example of clean lines and a simple design being used to make something beautiful.
There is a lot of history behind this flag. We were our own country for a decade before becoming a state. No other states can say that.
We were a country and our flag actually represents somethingV 6 Comments
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"
I'm a Air Force brat and have personally seen a lot of flags, Both from the U. S and other countries as well. I've lived in New Mexico for 22 years and I feel the New Mexico flag is beautiful, unique and awesome and I'm glad it made #2 even though it should be #1! Most people think New Mexico is a whole different country, but of course it's the 38th state as of 1912. Americans need to know we are a STATE! Haven't they heard of Billy the kid' Smokey the Bear or even the Manhattan project! Haven't they seen the old footage of the mushroom cloud from the first A bomb tested at Whitesands trinity site. Its only in a heck of a lot of movies! Any way New Mexico ROCKS and we have one of the best flags in the world!
Growing up in New Mexico I could tell you that we are proud of our flag. Most people in the state who have tattoos can be found having a Zia symbol somewhere on their body. Also I want to make a correction I saw down below.. New Mexico was the 47th state to be introduced into the Union in 1912 not the 38th state, the 38th state is Colorado. Also if you don't know anything about the symbol "The Zia" you should Google it because that simple symbol has a very big meaning.V 7 Comments
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.
It has writing on it. 0/10
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 4 Comments
Ohio is the coolest gosh darn (pardon my French) flag in the world!
This flag has a unique shape, a lot of symbolism, and is still patriotic. Everything anyone should want on a flag.
I think it's one of only 2 flags in the world that are not shaped like a rectangle - AjklothV 4 Comments
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.
The 2nd best State flag, after New Mexico and before South Carolina. Simple, striking, beautiful.
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 ENOUGH
It shows that it's the sunset capital, Spanish history, warm colors for a warm stat, copper for its mines etc... )V 7 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.
Colorado has the best flag
Simple and distinct, you see this design everywhere in the state. Everyone wants to wear it or have some article of clothing with it.
Tells a lot about the great state Colorado is!
Love the mix of warm and cool colors.V 2 Comments
What? This is the Norther Ireland Flag copied - Niall Ashraf, flag enthusiast
Actually Alabama had it first.
Northern Ireland 1921
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.
I agree, the name is not necessary. The design came from a contest sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution. Paul Hadley of Mooresville won the contest without having the name on it. The General Assembly added it.V 2 Comments
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
Underrated - Niall Ashraf, Flag enthusiast
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.
I feel sad for Utah, it was the #5 worst state flag for Thanksgiving 2013.
This one is good. - Swellow
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
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! - Co0lk1d25
Looks so poorly drawn. What's with the sun.
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.
Mississippi is awesomeV 3 Comments
If you are a southerner and know your history and also do not want to offend anyone, you will LOVE this flag
Like France but American
Iowa is better than you
Aw sweet... 35th... - codydoestuff
The fact that the two sides of the flag are different make it really cool. - VGCI_Plays
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
Whats Up Maine
I love maine
A little boring. - VGCI_Plays
Looks like it was designed by Evel Knievel, or a 1st grader.
Just another badly drawn flag.
WORST STATE EVER!
Massachusetts > New York
Massachusetts < Maryland
Maryland has the most iconic and greatest flag.
VT's seal includes lots of design and makes a great flag. - VGCI_Plays
Its cool bois
