Worst United States State Flags


The Top Ten

1 Mississippi Mississippi

Racist flag in a racist state, so the flag fits Mississippi perfectly

It's just a little bit much. I can feel America radiating off of the screen. And that's just the colors! - keycha1n

The flag only showing its history and I have no problem with that

Woah there, it has the confederate flag on it

Hold up this was ranked #1 on the Best Flags

Looks a bit disturbing to my eyes - doodie

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

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

5 Hawaii 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.

6 Florida

8 Massachusetts 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.

9 Louisiana Louisiana

Aw noo, this is one is cute! - keycha1n

The Contenders

15 California California

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

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.

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