State Flags

Today, I got diverted into learning about state flags. Most of them are not that great, IMO, but a few interested me.
Hawaii‘s is an amalgam of the US flag and the UK flag. It was adopted by the first king of Hawaii in 1816, so it’s one of the oldest state flags.
Maryland‘s is the other flag with British origin. It’s based on the coat of arms of a British baron who applied for Maryland’s royal charter.
Ohio‘s is the only non-rectangular state flag.
