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

Categories: Whatever

6. Delaware
Dates on flags are always lame; and like Belize, Delaware has a little Village People action going on. And then you've got that cow or goat or whatever it is and that seashell and that tiny ship and all that gold leaf. Too much stuff, Delaware!

5. Hawaii.
Why on earth we admitted these guys as the 50th state with the friggin' Union Jack on their flag has always puzzled me. The French and the Poles don't put swastikas on their flags to remind them of the time when they were in the Third Reich. Why should an American state offer an official homage to our former colonial overlords?

See Hawaii, only more so. Hey Mississippi, this is a great century we're living in. Come join it!

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.
