After intense comparison and rankings, here are our top 5 state flags of America.
A simplistic flag that is iconic in every way, the state flag of Texas is one of the most recognizable among all 50. Taking its inspiration from Old Glory, this red, white, and blue piece shows off Texas’ love of Independence and pride for their old west territory.
Featuring three different sections, a blue vertical stripe runs down the left side with a single white star in the center. To complete this patriotic look, two red and white stripes run horizontal on the right half of the flag to show off one of the best looking flags around.
This is by far one of the best flags to show off a little bit of its state, Arizona shows off its desert glory in this colorful and exciting flag.
