Rationale: The blue diagonal band running from lower hoist to upper fly symbolises the Blue Ridge mountains that run from south west to north east through the state. It is these mountains which give the state its name. In the centre of the flag is a white Mayflower, the official state flower, that recalls the early and famous colonial history of Massachusetts. The field is counter-changed white accordingly.
