Flags of the U.S. States and Territories

March 20, 2017

50 states flag of USAThe US state and territorial flags exhibit a variety of regional influences and local histories, as well as different styles and design principles. Nonetheless, the majority of the states’ flags share the same design pattern consisting of the state seal superimposed on a monochrome background, commonly blue. The most recent current state flag is that of Utah (February 16, 2011), while the most recent current territorial flag is that of the Northern Mariana Islands (July 1, 1985).

Modern U.S. state flags date from the 1890s, when states wanted to have distinctive symbols at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois. Most U.S. state flags were designed and adopted between 1893 and World War I.

According to a 2001 survey by the North American Vexillological Association, New Mexico has the best-designed flag of any U.S. state, U.S. territory, or Canadian province, while Georgia’s state flag was rated the worst design.(Georgia adopted a new flag in 2003; Nebraska’s state flag, whose design was rated second worst, remains in use to date.) About half the flags have a common “seal on a bed sheet” design, wherein the state seal is simply put on a solid, usually blue, background. Such flags consistently get the lowest ranks from the Vexillological Association.
