Obviously, it would be Colorado. First, any flag that has the state seal, (which I think is the majority), is out of the running. You can't see a lot of detail on a flag (at least not flying on a pole), so a state seal is not a good idea. That cuts the list down to a handful of flags, and Colorado's has a bright, attractive color scheme, a simple clear design, and represents the state well.

Maryland definitely, and it's not just bias. The state is really obsessed with this flag and uses it every single chance they get.





I also like...

Washington D.C.




Rhode Island:



All the flags with simply the state steal on a colored background are boring. My least favorite flags would be Georgia and Mississippi. It looks like some didn't get the message that the CSA lost the War...

Vexillogists generally like SC and NM.

"I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as [TITLE] under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God."

Not as obsessed as South Carolina, LOL. The palmetto and crescent is everywhere you turn, even in neighboring states (car decals, t-shirts):

The North American Vexillological Association (a bunch of flag nerds) has published a good, simple guide to successful flag designs. A poll of their members named New Mexico's the best, with good representation for SC, CO, AK and MD.
