Flag of Alaska.svg
AK Flag Proposal Alternateuniversedesigns.png
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.
Flag of Arizona.svg Arizona (current)
Flag of Arkansas.svg
US-AR flag proposal Hans 5.png
Arkansas (Hans)

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".
