US State Flags Get Redesigned

How many of the 50 state flags could you recognize? Personally, I didn't know many of them, nor did I realize how funny looking some of the state flags are, until writing this blog post. So I guess it makes sense that some designers might be itching to give the flags of the United States a makeover (whether or not they deserve one). 

Four designers of Alexandria, VA-based agency NJI Media got to do just that for United We Brand, a project that gave each of the 50 flags an updated look. Using a minimal color palette and simple iconography, the designers incorporated the state's motto, founding date, or other historical information into the new designs. I think some of these are more successful than others (some of them seem a little hipster logo generator, no?), but decide for yourself on which flag – old or new – you prefer by looking at the comparisons between the original and updated ones below.
