Wasn't that the point? I always saw that too but I assumed that's what everyone saw... until now. It's like a thrashing tornado bird with a hockey stick.

Ohmygoodness.  There's actually a perfect eagle's beak at the top of the A, isn't there?  I don't think I'll ever be able to unsee that.

As much as I love the Maryland flag I must admit I never knew what it looked like until the Ravens used it in their logo and I tried to figure out what it was. Maybe it's a West Coast / East Coast thing but being from California (and liking Willie Nelson), I knew the Texas flag as a 9 year old.

I thought it was the Chilean flag for much of my life.

 

Admittedly, I think I made the list slightly biased through the lens of sport, given its prominence in use by the Terrapins, Orioles, and Ravens as well as thinking more towards the common praise it gets more than instant recognizeability to the standard observer.  Anyone who on a regular basis sees Maryland in action immediately picks out the state flag as the most recognizeable.

I guess it's also kind of the fact that it's three colors with one star look so similar to Chile, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, and a dozen other things, which Maryland is supremely unique and recognizeable.

As a Canadian, I knew the Texas flag long before any other state flags.

Crazy how other than the red number on the Dodger jersey and the name of the teams, they resemble each other strongly.

A thrasher is an actual bird...IIRC, the Thrashers weren't named for whirlwind, hectic action.
