EXCEPT MINE, BITCHES!

Specifically because it breaks all the rules of vexillology and does it well. It's not simple or easy to draw at all, the colors are wild, and more than three, but it is distinctive, and has meaning to the state. It's a perfect example of how to break the rules. And we fucking love it here.

I remember my mother getting this flag to hang from our home in Baltimore and thinking from a young age, Damn, that flag is so cool. The thought holds to this day.

I absolutely love how much pride Marylanders have in their state, their culture, their history. I haven't seen it much anywhere else in the country to the degree it is here. Now that I've moved here I never want to leave.

Haha that's awesome! I would agree though simultaneously admit that my sample size for state pride is too small to be definitive. But I love my Bohs and O's, I'm glad you're a fan too.
