I've Always Liked Puerto Rico's Flag


Image: Flag of Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico wants to become the 51st state of the US:
“Voters in Puerto Rico have supported a non-binding referendum to become a full US state. The measure will require approval from the US Congress, but President Barack Obama has said he will respect the vote. The island is currently a US territory, which uses the dollar and whose citizens travel on US passports. But it does not return senators to the US Congress and is represented in Washington by a non-voting delegate. Almost 80% of the island’s electorate took part in the referendum, the fourth in the past 45 years. With almost all the votes counted, almost 54% voted to change the island’s relationship with the US. And in reply to a second question on what future they favoured, nearly two-thirds wanted full statehood.”
I've always liked Puerto Rico's flag.

Maybe we can adopt it as a new US Flag 2.0.

What do you think?

Time for an update?
