Minnesota State Flag Concept

Recommended Posts

I came up with this Minnesota State flag concept. I have a few alternative color schemes but I'm pretty set with the design. The one shown is my favorite but the full album link is provided on the bottom of the page. The colors are darker versions or copys of the current state flag colors,The Nordic cross represents Minnesota's Nordic heritage, and the North Star represents the North Star State. I'm open to ideas and C/C!

A cross on a US state flag now a days will have every SJW and activist out against it.

 

It's a beautiful design, I like it a lot.

Nice try, but people know that a Nordic Cross does not have to mean an illegal establishment of religion. 

 

I like the design a lot, but the colors may be a bit dark.  Would you consider lightening either one of the shades?  

 

And nitpick - I think the star is a couple degrees at an angle.  Looks tilted to the right. 

 

Other than that, I like it.  It's bold, follows the five rules of flag design, and represents the state well.  Good job.

The star gets a bit lost in the cross' white borders. I would recommend basing the flag off of the Danish variation of the Scandinavian cross. A navy field with a kelly green cross and the white star where they intersect.

You guys are awesome, love this site.

Update: thinned the lines in order to make the North Star stand out, straightened the star, and lightened the colors.9KyTVQ0.png

 

Just for kicks; an alternate version I made based on the 1989 North Star Flag:

Then they should protest Florida for having "In God We Trust" on their current, actual state flag as well.  There are any number of reasons that stupid people find for making stupid stands on rather stupid issues.

I like that bottom one, but make the line straight, not wavy. Seems a little too corny with the wave. With it a straight line, I feel that is a stronger, yet more simple look.

I know, I don;t like the waves much either. However, it's based off the Rejected 1989 North Star Flag which had those curvy stripes. Here it is with the stripes straightened out:uLj9U2X.png

 and here is my original North Star Flag concept:

The last one is the best of the lot in my opinion.  Then again, I'm a big fan of the North Star flag, though I think your version with the eight-point star in white is slightly better.

Yeah, the distinctive star is already a big improvement over the simple gold star on the North Star flag.

 

I like both, but the wavy-lined version is simpler so that would have to be my preference.  Fantastic work!
