This design is part of my 2009 flag proposal series (the flag designs from my old site with the most hits and ratings).
The current design
The current flag of Massachusetts is a typical American-style seal-on-a-bedsheet design, and as a result it is convoluted, unmemorable and uninspiring. In 2020, the flag has come under scrutiny from many groups because the sword above the Native American figure can be seen as an endorsement of colonial violence. In July, the state senate voted unanimously to look into redesigning the state seal and flag. Therefore, here is my proposal.
