Worst United States State Flags

The Top Ten

1 Mississippi

The confederate flag is a symbol of pride. Pride in being racist

Racist, scum, and ugly. Reflects the current state of Mississippi.

It's a historic flag of a piece in American history that is dark and offensive. Mississippi's flag reminds us all about it.

Ok I’m from Minnesota the most northerner you can get and can I just say why does it matter that the confederate flag is on here you people get offended by the tiniest of things the war is long gone the flag is apart of the states history and there is nothing they should be ashamed of - RawIsgore

2 Maryland Maryland is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, bordering Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

Looks a bit disturbing to my eyes - doodie

Hold up this was ranked #1 on the Best Flags

So awful

3 Alabama Alabama is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west.

Really welcoming flag. - JamesBourne

It's just a red X for racism - LightningStrike

4 Virginia Virginia, officially the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a state located in the South Atlantic region of the United States.

The emblem shows someone standing of a dead body. - JoeBoi

A little violent. - doodie

"A little violent."
Do you even know what it depicts, or what the Latin words mean?
Didn't think so.

5 Hawaii Hawaii is the 50th and most recent state of the United States of America, receiving statehood on August 21, 1959.

What is Great Britain's Flag doing here? Hawaii was once a colony of the Philippines.

Why is the Union Jack on the flag even though they’ve never been controlled by Great Britain at any point in history? - JoeBoi

6 Florida

Its overdesigned

7 Ohio Ohio is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. Ohio is the 34th largest by area, the 7th most populous, and the 10th most densely populated of the 50 United States.
8 Massachusetts Massachusetts, officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is the most populous state in the New England part of the northeastern region of the United States.

I like this, I personally think Maryland has the worst flag in the history of the world.

Massachusetts has the worst flag! And it's the worst state!
By the way, the best US state flag is Maryland. So unique and distinctive.

I love here and I hate it. It looks too broad.

9 Louisiana

Aw noo, this is one is cute! - keycha1n

10 Indiana


The Contenders

Too communistic, man

Just look at that brown bear, an animal associated with the ussr, heading to the left, which represents how liberal this state is, and look at the red star, a symbol associated with communism, on the top left corner, which is for the authoritarian left where communism resides on the political compass

Mississippi’s flag is better, remember that

16 Nevada Nevada is a state in the Western, Mountain West, and Southwestern regions of the United States of America.
17 New Jersey New Jersey is a state in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is bordered on the north and east by New York, on the southeast and south by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by Pennsylvania, and on the southwest by Delaware.

This flag disturbs me. It looks like a horse was beheaded and its head was placed in a chalice filled with horse blood sting on top of beheading devices while two disappointed Roman goddesses are forced to stand next to the gruesome horse decapitation.

18 Oregon Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Oregon is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the north by Washington, on the south by California, on the east by Idaho, and on the southeast by Nevada.
19 Wisconsin Wisconsin is a U.S. state located in the north-central United States, in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions.
20 New Mexico
21 South Dakota

Okay I understand how Mississippi is first but South Dakota should definitely be second. The circle in the middle of the blue background is so unoriginal, there is writing everywhere, and the picture in the middle is so complex it’s hard to even make out what it is.

Generic seal-on-blue-bedsheet, like pretty much half of the state flags. Plus, that repetition of the state name is unforgivable. - WM3DAS

George Washington doesn't really explain what the state's all about. - Smash64

It only includes the face of George Washington.
