For Flag Day: The 10 Worst U.S. State Flags

Categories: Whatever

3. Alaska
The Big Dipper and the North Star. On a plain blue background. Boring. Alaska's a badass place. Better options would be a Kodiak bear, a bald eagle ripping up a salmon, or a portrait of the late Captain Phil Harris sucking down a Marlboro in the wheelhouse of the Cornelia Marie.

2. Alabama
Don't adjust your computer screens, kiddos, that big red X you see there is the legit Bama banner, not a message that the picture's been taken down.

1. Kentucky
Aw man. That looks like a Franklin Mint commemorative plate garnished with bay leaves and buttercups. Tacky, tacky, tacky, and way too much writing on there to boot.

Better than your "best" article. This shows more understanding of vexillological principles… but you got Alaska wrong. It's a good design- read up on the meaning.

The Union Jack on the Hawaii flat has nothing to do with the colonial period of the original 13 colonies, rather it is a result of Hawaii's own early history with the United Kingdom.

This cracked me up.  Thank goodness my birth state of Illinois wasn't on the list.

This x 1000.  But I was born and raised in Illinois, so I'm biased.
