As Roman Mars said in his Vexillology TED Talk, "In every bad flag, there is a good flag trying to get out", and Utah nails the essence of its original design in a sleek, stylized update. Bravo to you, Utah, and I hope the rest of the states may one day follow suit.

The bias in choosing North Carolina over South Carolina is ridiculous by every measure you gave at the start. SC's flag: - Completely different from any of the other flags - Has no writing on it - Difficult to draw perfectly, but easy to draw a sketch of if you simplify the palmetto - The navy blue is a bit boring with all the other navy blue flags there I'd say A or B tier since it could be much snazzier and easier to draw. But it could comfortably fit on the international stage. NC's flag: - Copied from Texas (copying from a good design is the best part of it) - Has the initals of the state on it (breaking the writing your own name rule), not in the worst way possible but still there - Has other other writing - Banners aren't the worst to draw, but they're nontrivial And that's it. FA tier at best. Sorry Mr. Grey, it's just not good. I simply cannot accept that you can in good conscience put those two flags side by side and said "NC's flag is better than SC's".

This got me thinking what had already been done for it, and the first result was from FlagsForGood, lots of pretty green hills (a bit reminiscent of our evergreen trees) with a dark blue sky and five white 6-pointed stars. From the site - "The Design: Since DC took the Washington family crest, I decided to take the flag of George Washington's military HQ and use that as a base. Then, with a little help from Tiktok, I decided to incorporate a light to dark green gradient that can be found so much in the nature around Washington. The five stars, representing the five active volcanoes in Washington, make a subtle "W" in the sky and the mountains mirror their shape."

Poor Nevada never got assigned a grade audibly, but for those who did not spot it on the graphics later in the video (like myself, having to scan for it: 12:34) it ended up lost among the other blue flags as an FC. For some actual flag commentary, why does the so-called "garden state" not have the color green feature more prominently in its flag? I got some serious Japanese rising sun flag vibes from Arizona's flag, but it certainly works. As for Iowa... not sure how that is "much 'murica", it just looks like the French flag with a seal on it. Sure, eagle seal, but still. And finally, absolutely agreed that Minnesota should have been some variation on the Scandinavian country flags.
@ReneSchickbauer 8 aylar önce
Nevada could do a really bad-ass move and put the symbol of a mushroom cloud on the flag. Sort of a cross between "help, we are the most nuked place in the world" and "Don't get any fancy ideas with the water rights, California. We have bigger bombs diplomacy."

4:48 Fun fact: The music playing here is “Morning Mood”, from Grieg’s Peer Gynt suite. It seems like an odd fit for a desert state, though Grey matches it up with some astute flag praise to make it fit well. You might recognize the song as the one that often plays behind pastoral pictures of flowers opening and fauna frolicking in a forest. HOWEVER, in the play that this piece was composed for, the scene it’s written for is a sunrise in a desert. So it is being used here it here exactly as intended.

Consider a simplified cross section of Washington State (looking north): a deep blue ocean and tannish grey sandy beach, a dark evergreen forest broken by the deep blue fjords of the Puget Sound (ignore the urbanization for now), a black and white glaciered stratovolcano (Mount Tahoma preferably) rising above smaller but still impressive mountains (the Cascade Range), a broad blue river (the Columbia) and black basalt scablands amongst golden tan fields (representing both native sage brush prairie and the immense and productive farmlands of eastern Washington). Also consider the native cultural symbols such as totem poles, and Coast Salish Art of Orca's, Salmon and Thunderbirds. Then of course you have agricultural products of the state; from the salmon, shellfish, and cranberries of Western Washington, to the apples, wheat, and cherries of Eastern Washington (obviously not all inclusive). Not to mention industry and tech, from Boing airplanes to Microsoft and Amazon web services (for better or worse). Definitely not saying you should put all of that in a flag (shudders at the overcrowded mess that would become), but Washinton State has so many identifiable things to choose from it's a crime that we're stuck with a seal of a President that had absolutely nothing to do with our founding or is even representative of our region other than sharing a name. And yes, as much as I love it, while the Cascadia Doug Flag is very nice, it's Douglas fir tree can be mistaken for a California redwood, and further, the Cascadia flag represents the entire Cascadia bioregion, an area spanning from southeast Alaska to northern California, it would be a bit presumptuous (and lazy) of Washington State to claim that flag all for itself. Anywho, to any vexillographer's out there... feel free to develop some better flags for Washington State (no George Washington please, thanks), just please make sure you follow Grey's rules. : )

Overall, this was one of my favorite Grey videos in years. HOWEVER, the take on South Carolina's flag was just plain blasphemous. The flag incorporates the state's revolutionary war history in all three elements. The color was the color of the SC state militia uniforms at the beginning of the revolution. The crescent moon was the insignia worn on their caps. These two elements were the basis of the "Moultrie Flag," designed by Colonel William Moultrie and flown over Fort Sullivan during the Revolutionary War battle of Sullivan's Island, in which a hastily constructed, partially finished fort made of palmetto logs and sand, commanded by Moultrie, held off a British invasion fleet, sparing Charleston from British occupation for the first four years of the Revolution. The Moultrie Flag, with the obvious addition of the palmetto tree (weak to hold the ignorance of others against SC) later became the South Carolina state flag, and has remained mostly unchanged since its incorporation. In addition to its historical nature and its simplicity, the flag is heavily recognizable, and, like the Union Jack, is very popular - it widely visible flying across the state, and you'll find it on stickers, t-shirts, and all other manner of merchandise. And unlike other southern states, at least SC's flag doesn't reference the confederacy! Sure, the blue isn't original, so I understand keeping the flag out of the top tier, but this flag deserves at least a B ranking.

It's been a long night and I am still irate at South Carolina's ranking in relation to North Carolina (what with NC's blatant writing and copying Texas's homework and what not).

This video is fantastic. I have wanted to sign up for your Patreon for a long time, but I was a student and I was really touched when you told me to focus on school. As someone who grew up lower income, it was a surprise when I wanted to give you money, then you said that and it made me want to cry. Thankfully, I finished law school last August and am now a Lawyer and can afford to pay back! Right now I am a Bonnie Bee (because housing in Seattle is expensive), but you make education fun and I love it. Thank you!

Really feeling the love for Wyoming. The flag we print on everything is just the bison, but I also remember this conversation by heart so it was as expected.

The whole blue background thing probably wouldn't bother me so much if it was uniform. If all 50 states had it as an easily identifiable "this is a state flag of the US" thing, I wouldn't mind it. But knowing that that's not a thing and never will be, I too loath its very existence and wish only for the blue to go away, or at least be a rare thing. I hope to one day see my home state of Indiana do a redesign. So close to greatness, yet so far.

I am so glad our "cantons" got this right. Here basically everyone can (more or less, kinda sorta) identify and even draw all cantonal flags. I could even draw the flags of towns I've lived in, as they are all destinct and simple. Towns will usually fly town, canton and the federal flag in order next to each other on / in front of municipal buildings. I assumed this was universal, shared by all nations and administations alike. Like cmon you are tryna run a serious operation, it's really not that hard to slap a flag together. I know about the cali, texas, Alabama and that's it. Will remember Alaska's flag from today onward but holy cow, your state flags are terrible. I always thought I just never saw them, and had never questioned why. Oh boy, now I know why. The "state seal on navy blue" ... 26 of them???? Wtf

Happy to see Arizona getting an A. Makes me feel warm inside (and outside, it's getting hot in the desert again) to see our state flag be appreciated.

I just love how you give each state their own personality. I love these girls, especially Ohio.

Single tear at the evisceration of my home state’s beautiful flag 🥲 you gotta admit the bear is cute tho. Update: Alaska does deserve the best bear award though.

This, together with Roman Mars' TED Talk on city flags, should be required viewing for any and all local governments. You can do so much better! A decent flag might seem trivial, but it's as good a place to start as any!

I’d be very interested in Grey’s opinions on other countries state/provincial flags haha. The Netherlands’ provincial flags are in general quite good in my opinion, if somewhat boring.

Hey, Grey -- Since I have the opportunity to send a comment you have to read, let me just say that your channel is the first thing I ever found that made me think TRshow was a cool place with interesting things, and not a pointless waste of bandwidth. So thank you for making awesome content that is _easily_ worth the money I put into it. I'm grateful for all you and your team do.

Of all of the Grey videos, this one is in my Top 5. The emotion of the class is excellent, and it's incredibly well written. Maybe someday my beloved Wisconsin will do something better with our flag (the bar is very low).

As someone from Wyoming who has VERY deep roots in Colorado I want to 100% agree about the Wyoming flag and say I feel the Colorado flag should be a B as there is a lot of symbolism behind it. Also, Colorado put the C on their flag because at the time they adopted it there were several other states that looked like that were going to do something with the same Blue White Blue patten so they were worried it would look like the rest of the flags. Simular to the everything is blue problem.

Very enjoyable! We had an American visit once. He was most surprised of how we consistently rock the worlds oldest flag at every celebratory occasion. I never thought about that until then.
