Maryland state flag
The Maryland flag, adopted in 1904, consists of the arms of 2 different families: the Calverts and the Crosslands. The Calvert family, (gold and black design), was connected with Lord Baltimore, founder of Maryland, while the Crossland family, (red and white design), was the name of the mother of George Calvert, first Lord of Baltimore. These two arms are shown in diagonal corners from each other on the state flag.
All of our flags at Star Spangled Flags are 100% made in the USA from start to finish! We use a tough, nylon fabric to hold up outdoors, extra stitching on the fly end of the flag, and a special UV coating to prevent fading from the sun.

Also known as the Old Line State, Maryland lies at the center of the Eastern Seaboard that stretches from Maine to Virginia. Its location played a great role during the Civil War where one of the most significant battles known as “Battle of Antietam” took place on September 17, 1862, near Sharpsburg, Maryland. Though a number of brave combatants lost their lives, the “Battle of Antietam” was a strategic victory that ended General Robert E. Lee’s Invasion of the North.
Talking about heritage and culture, Maryland’s rich past definitely offers tourists an awe- inspiring experience once they get to visit its several well-known tourist attractions.

Cool as it may sound, the one who wrote the national anthem was born in Maryland. Many also feel that the Maryland Flag is the perfect flag because of its interesting patterns and bold colors. The Maryland State Flag design comes from the shield in the coat of arms of the Calvert family.
