The relatively squat shape of North Dakota’s flag represents the state being squished up against Canada and not fully able to stretch out as much as it would like.

A recent petition to amend New Jersey’s flag to have the figures of Liberty and Ceres making out received support from both the queer community and the ‘girl-on-girl is hot’ lobby.
