    The black and gold are from the Calvert crest. The red portions are from the Crossland Crest, which has ties to England but was used by Confederate sympathizers during the Civil War. The flag represents a compromise between the two.

    Fascinating. The first time I saw the coat of arms of the Baron of Baltimore, the flag made more sense. But reading up on what you mention, I'm understanding it even more.

    The New California Republic has a banger of a flag, as the kids say. #falloutnewvegas


    The awesome architecture / design podcast 99 Percent Invisible has also done a bunch of episodes on flags. This one's website also has a bunch of information about the concept of flag design, and how they're rated on a scale from 1 to 10 by the professional flag society, essentially.
