Brussels5728,

Not a fan, and your comment points to more NE inspiration than straight NH which is odd for a NH specific flag

To each their own. I'd say there's a good bit of NH symbolism, with the white & yellow triangles evoking the White Mountains, the yellow evoking granite like it does on the seal, and the blue symbolizing the harbors of NH (tbf, I probably didn't have all of this symbolism in mind back when I created the flag, but I can still easily see it as a NH flag given that this symbolism fits it well). There is a lot of NE symbolism, and it definitely jumps out at you with the flag having a pine tree and all, but I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing.

EDIT: Added parenthetical.

Nice! It’s simple (as flags should be) and follows the rule of tincture (which pleases me a lot, for some reason), though I’m not too keen on fields of or touching argent. But it’s a nice design. :)

I get not liking the yellow and white triangles touching, but I think they kinda look like a shaded white pyramid, evoking the White Mountains which give New Hampshire one of its nicknames.

Oh! Don’t pay attention to it! Most flags nowadays don’t follow the rule of tincture anymore. The design is good, and that’s all that matters. ;)

This is one of my designs that I'm really happy with, probably just because I feel the colors go together really well while being arranged in a very distinct manner. I don't remember what I had in mind symbolism-wise when I made this flag, but here are my guesses:

  • The pine is a prominent symbol of New England.
  • The triangular arrangement of the colors represents New Hampshire's nickname, the White Mountain State. You can even view the white and yellow triangles as a white, shaded mountain.
  • The white & red allude to England's flag (more New England symbolism).
  • The blue & yellow were probably taken from the original flag using symbolism from the seal, with the blue evoking the water from the harbor and the yellow representing granite (New England also being called the Granite State).

What do the components symbolize?

Oop, forgot to make a comment about it. Just did.

Masimatutu,
