    Here is a fun fact for you.


    The Oregon state flag is the only state flag with different designs on each side. The Virginia state flag has a reverse side to its seal, but it is not seen on any flag. On the obverse, the central part of the state seal appears. Thirty-three stars representing the number of states in the Union when Oregon won admittance surround a heart-shaped shield. The shield image is of a wagon train arriving at the Pacific Ocean with a rising sun in the background. A scroll bears the state motto "The Union" and the name and date are above and below the seal. The reverse design shows a beaver on its dam. Both designs are yellow on a blue field.

    Interesting. But graphically it's all center focused and too small. But then no one asked me. Not sure about the 2nd side being different.

    BORING! In their case, that is probably best. Otherwise it might have___________ on it.

    It's also ironic that the last Grizzly Bear in California was killed several years before the Bear Flag was adopted.

    Speaking of, only two states have official ensigns, or flags to be flown at sea:

    Massachusetts:



    Maine:

    Oregon should show her beaver flag more often.

    Anyhoo how do yous like your own state's flag?
    MD's is a Civil War reconciliation flag. The yellow and black checker is Union, the Crossland Banner was the flag of the secessionists who in the border state that MD was never succeeded.

    Florida's definitely has that Confederate vibe to it, but it also harkens to the Spanish Cross of Burgundy

    I ALWAYS think "drivers start your engines" when I see MD's.
