What are your thoughts on the river flag I posted up thread?
I like it. I would make the vertical stripes on the shield solid red. The way they are, at a distance they would look pink. And I would either enlarge the star at the top or dispense with it altogether. "In God We Trust" is fine I guess. But it isn't distinctive to Mississippi. The state's Latin motto, Virtute et Armis - “By Valor and Arms” would make it more distinctive to Mississippi and pair well with the martial imagery of the shield. But I don't dislike the design at all.

There are several really good flags.
But I think we can all agree that a state flag that has the state's name on it is a bad design.
