Hot take I get the whole no text on flags thing but the words on CAs flag make it more visually appealing.

Unrelated but I’d be interested in seeing a full rendition of state flags with a unifying design feature like a stripe on the left or bottom side (symbolizing American state hood).

To each their own. I think the CA flag (and just flags in general) are more appealing and interesting without text, as anything that you can put as overt text can instead be represented with a symbol or image that fits better with the flag's design. But again, that's just me.

I've seen unifying redesigns like that. I recall seeing a couple on Reddit where every flag had a star.

Should we continue to celebrate an extinct animal on our flag?

curiousaur,

Specifically, a hunted by humans into extinction animal?

Yeah, both for being feared, delicious, and a good source for rendered fat. They were slaughtered in great numbers by missionaries. They were killed for fun in spectacle Bull vs. Bear fights. They were all killed.

Going along with my Maryland design on my redesigns of The List of Flags that Must Never Be Touched™, here's my take on the California flag! It's mainly just simplifying things, mostly because I prefer this more bare-bones look and dislike text on flags, but also to keep it consistent with my other flag designs. I think just having red on white gives the flag a really satisfying aesthetic compared to the actual flag.

lencioni,

Now I want to see one with a bear bones look
