Alternate Michigan Flag (1).png|MI Flag Proposal "Laqueesha". Author's note: ''"The two green bars represent how Michigan is divided into two peninsulas. Blue represents the Straits of Mackinac.

Michigan 123.png|A proposal for a new flag for the State of Michigan. This design pays homage to Michigan's history as a territory of "New France" and to the French explorers who provided so many of Michigan's place names.
