I would like to cast a vote for New Mexico. The stylized sun design is clean and simple.

Idaho has a very attractive state flag and probably the best state motto's: Esto Perputua.

I believe the state flag has the only state seal in the nation designed by a female.

I just think that having a state flag with the state seal on it is just so unoriginal and uninspiring.

Colorado's flag makes me think of the Chicago Cubs. South Carolina does have on of the best flags out there and a pelican injuring itself to feed its young is interesting to me.
