I like Alaska and Arizona, but my favorite is New Mexico:

Countries:

Not much jumps out at me. I like Canada and Norway, but I went with a basic...

US Cities:

I had NO IDEA so many cities had flags; 10 Minnesota cities including my city of St. Paul (and I have never ever seen that flag). I like St. Louis's flag symbolizing the meeting of the two rivers...(which I just learned is in the OP and a lot of other posts...)

The biggest surprise is St. Petersburg. I'd think someone would try to change it...

Turns out that it's a flag that members of the Canadian Power and Sail Squardons fly. Essentially it's a huge organization for recreational boater that promotes safety and knowledge.

Anyone with a Canadian address can get a free 26x32" printed flag poster of the red ensign (and others) from the government. [There is also a larger (than this html image) pdf of the posters on the site]:

I just found this tidbit regarding the NS flag while on Wikipedia:

Pretty funny.

Also, I ordered a free Historical flags poster from Heritage Canada and got it this week. It's a really nice poster.
