I met Tara at the holiday parade this year! Love the design. We were riding bikes with Recycle Bicycle HBG and everyone was flying the Keystone Flag on their bikes

Thanks for posting this, I am now a supporter.

Yep, you can pledge to the kickstarter here to get your hands on flags, stickers, pins, patches. Only 3 days left in the campaign too!

Just pledged, really hope this reaches the goal

That's cool. It definitely follows the rules of good flag design. I like the coat of arms tho. Thinking about getting it as a tattoo on my right shoulder blade


TheTaraStark t1_izk87ev wrote

That's awesome! And yeah, that COA would look way better as a tattoo than a flag. Would love to see it if/when you go for it!

I get the colors are derived from the coat of arms, but even there idk if the blue makes sense. Green and gold to symbolize forest and agriculture is spot on (or “wealth of human thought and action" & "rich natural resources” sure) but IMO black to symbolize coal and oil is much stronger in a landlocked state than blue to symbolize marine trade.

As much as I hate that coal and oil are still being burned in the modern day, the majority of our economy can trace its roots to them.

I see where you're at, and have seen many folks suggest the same of this design. Counterpoint - our rivers, lakes, and waterways have a long and proud history predating iron and coal (especially when considering their significance to pre-colonial native tribes like the Lenape, Susquehannock, Erie, and others) and will have a much longer history outlasting those industries. That shade of blue was also altered from the COA to match the US flag, representing PA's pivotal role in national history (taking the role of the Eagle in our COA).

(Full disclosure, I'm the one who put this design together 5yrs ago! Glad to see it's still sparking good conversation. 🥰)

Only once we get recreational marijuana and constitutional carry of a firearm and put Fetterman in an assisted living home where he belongs.

Ya know Oz was very open about how he wanted marijuana to stay strictly medical?


Connect-Expression-8 t1_izi1qf9 wrote

The state house, senate and governor control that sort of thing. Not The U.S. Senate.


No_Russian_29 t1_izj0okm wrote

Wow I sure do wonder what Pennsylvania state senators think about marijuana legalization!


confusedhealthcare19 t1_izjixfe wrote

While that is true, the most logical solution to illegal marijuana is federal legalization or decriminalization. There's no reason it should be left up to states. If it is an issue important to you, you would be able to understand that.
