The stars are too small; enlarging them avoids the flag looking like a plain blue cloth from large distances. Both AlternateUniverseDesigns and Achaley had this idea.

I know it has letters, but is such a iconic flag and so much reproduced in all world. I think this flag is a exception in the "no lettering rule".

Historical flag of Hawaii (details) - Hawaii is an interesting case: apparently an earlier flag is less stuck with the past and more representative of present days than the current flag.
