Montana state flag. After a discussion on Reddit, it would appear most people in the state would like to continue to have a golden round emblem on a blue bed sheet. However the state flag is required to have gold braid top and bottom. Thus the field in this design has 2 off gold stripes, each 10% height as per the removed "MONTANA" text that was added in 1981. The Seal: Or at least a more simplified version of it. Still having many colours but all the detail has been taken away so it's just the flashes of colour that will be noticed in breeze. Technical strip: Now to be an active part of the design, it holds the state name and motto.
