Ohio (top) and South Carolina (bottom) are my faves.






South Carolina - too small to be its own country, too big to be a mental asylum.

Maryland and South Carolina definitely. Maryland's is beautiful and reminds me of something medieval.

least favorite? Massachusetts...what a dreary, ugly flag.

I think the best National, and State flag would be the Nation of Texas and the State of Texas.

Oh, good. A topic I can weigh in on so everyone knows I am still alive. LOL

If I could find them on the net, I would post them but my top three are Alaska, British Columbia and the city of Portland, Oregon.

GO CANUCKS!!

"Adopted on June 1, 1968, the flag of Alberta contains the Shield centred on an azure-blue background. The shield is topped by St. George's Cross on a white background, representing King George III and symbolizing British heritage. An azure-blue sky highlights the snow-capped Rocky Mountains, shadowing the green foothills, the prairies and the wheat fields.

Blue, along with Gold, are official colours of Alberta."

I have to go for the home team here:



It's a lot better than the "Barnes" Flag (named so because the Gov. at the time Roy Barnes ramrodded it in adoption):

Although it's really simple, I quite like the Alaska state flag:



The blue represents the sky and the Forget-Me-Not, the state flower of Alaska. The North Star symbolizes Alaska being the most northerly state. The dipper is for the Great Bear - symbolizing strength.

The provincial flag of British Columbia is nice:



The flag itself was derived from the centre shield in the province's coat of arms. The Union Jack with a golden crown symbolizes the origin of British Columbia as a British colony. The wavy blue and white stripes represent the Pacific Ocean. The setting sun represents British Columbia being Canada's most western province.

Just a side note, I once heard that the California flag was supposed to have a pear, not a bear. It was a miscommunication.

This is where I would insert the Lone Star State's flag, but since it's already under the "favorite NATION'S flag", I'll digress.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
