Flag proposal for Iowa by FlagFreak, from http://flagdesigner.blogspot.com/2007/05/iowa.html. Originally uploaded on 15 May 2007.
"This Iowa flag design I designed is one of my favorites. The blue stripes represent the two rivers on both sides of the state. The red and blue and the five-pointed star represent the United States. The yellow represents corn, and Iowa has the most corn of any U.S. state.
The current Iowa flag is actually considered a banner, and banner were originally meant to be flown on two poles, one on each side. That seems a little weird, but maybe it's the right way to go, as the Iowa "banner" is pretty bad as a flag. The eagle holding a ribbon in its mouth with the state motto and the word "IOWA" on the bottom of the flag. What would it look like from the other side?
