As a born Marylander, I have a lot of pride in my home state’s awesomely idiosyncratic flag. So it was to my chagrin that I learned about designer Ed Mitchell’s redesign of all 50 state flags, which intends to bring a more unified aesthetic language to the lot.
I’m far from some state-rights anti-federalist, but I like that our state flags are such a mishmash of colors, seals, and coats-of-arms. That said, perusing Mitchell’s takes is pretty fun. New York’s features the Statue of Liberty.
See some highlights in the gallery, and everything at Mitchell’s site.
