    Well yes, you're right from a geopolitical standpoint. That said, there are the nice borders and the fact that it's sufficiently "generic Midatlantic" that I don't see it as sticking out like a sore thumb.

    I've got two more improved state flags for y'all, they are Vermont and Washington State.

    For Vermont, the current flag is the state seal on a blue field.

    And now the improved flag...
    awltvermflague.png
    The green represents the foliage and nature of Vermont, as environmental friendliness. The blue represents the many lakes of the region and the tree is a commonly used symbol for New England and represents the nature.

    The Washington flag is currently the state seal on a green background.

    And here's the improved version...

    The Flag is based on the flag of Cascadia (Oregon, Washington and British Columbia) the main difference is that the lower green section is not a straight line, but in the outline of a mountain, a symbol of Washington's geography.

    Welp that's it. Next flag is North Dakota

    I like that flag!
    To join in on the argument with my $0.02, "DelMarVa" is a stupid name and Delaware should occupy the entire peninsula...

    Now Vermont on the other hand is a nonsense State. It's very existence is a clerical error exacerbated by a pissing contest between New York and New Hampshire.
    I like your flags though.

    Vermont has a genuine history and spirit in the Green Mountain Republic.

    Which only existed in the first place because they got tired of being fought over by NY & NH.
    They basically stood up and said "Screw both of y'all, we're our own separate country now!" Which admittedly doesn't get much more American, but the fact remains...clerical error.
    If the NH/NY border had been conclusively and unambiguously decided beforehand, or someone had enforced one claim over the other and settled the issue...there wouldn't be a "Vermont".

    Regardless of the reason why, it still has a meaningful spirit behind it. Delaware does not

    We shall not rest until Delaware occupies the entire peninsula!

    I was going to enter this for the Weekly Flag Challenge, but I got distracted and missed the deadline.

    So I'm just going to leave it here:

    The flag of Kaos

    [​IMG]

    Black and white stand for the artificial duality of Law that are overcome by the red and black of Chaos, with the central symbol denoting infinite possibilities.

    Ok just stop it with arguing about how the states should be! Do you want a mod to come in and shut this thread down?

    I would recommend that you change the tree to green and the background to yellow or white.

    Hello! I've got more US state flags for y'all. This time it's North Dakota.
    The OTL flag...
    [​IMG]
    And the improved flag...
    northdakhootflag.png
    The Arrow head represents the native culture of the region
    The blue star represents the state
    the smaller arrow head is to show it's affiliation with the USA
    The White and Blue represent the sky and the snowy ground; the climate of the state

    As always, feedback is welcomed. Next improved US state flag is Louisiana.

    Looks much nicer.
    For north Dakota, fatten up the Inner arrowhead, and maybe add a star in the middle but otherwise nice job.

    Maybe I'm just a stubborn America, but the original seems...more potent.

    Something about that blue just commands respect.

    The blue stands for the Gulf of Mexico.
    The green stands for the swamps of the state.
    The Fleur De Lis stands for the French based culture and history of the area.

    As always, feedback is welcomed. Next improved US state flag is New York.

    k, I've changed the shade of blue in the North Dakota flag to that of the original flag.

    I might make a separate thread for this since it seems like y'all like the redesigned state flags and it there's enough poor state flags to make quite a few of these.
