GOOD FLAG DESIGNS ...

Mankato Free-Press (Editorial, March 23, 1989):
"Other states have striking and unique flags.  Alaska's is a tasteful blue with eight stars arranged as the Big Dipper and Pole Star; New Mexico has yellow with an Indian sun symbol.  Wyoming has a white buffalo on blue; Indiana has blue with a gold torch.  Hawaii's is an eye-popper that looks like a collision between the U.S. and British flags.  And there are many more marvelous designs.  The whole point of a flag is to be a symbol, and Minnesota's current flag doesn't do the job.  We need a flag with some flash and some color.  We need a flag that's as unique as Minnesota and Minnesotans."
