The state flags of the 50 states are many things, but coordinated is not one of them, according to Philadelphia based artist Ed Mitchell.

After listening to a podcast on local flag design, Mitchell realized that many of the state flags do not follow  the design laws for flags and wanted to design a set that had a uniformed theme.


“‘Mitchell’s first move was to strip away “everything that reminded me of a divided nation,’ he writes,” according to WIRED.
