The real designer was a naval flag designer who, pay attention to this part, requested to be paid with a "Quarter cask of public wine".

Just sayin'.

Apologies. No disrespect intended.

No disrespect whatsoever! I threw in the Betsy Ross story to try to get others interest. Seems like it is an old naval tradition to pay those designing a flag....you know, in alcohol.

Let me repeat, it is an old naval tradition to pay those designing a flag in alcohol.

If it's good enough for Trader Joe's then it's good enough for me! However asking someone to ship something where the shipping costs more than the item would just be rude.

14 Hours to go folks! Today's the last day! Get your votes in while you still can! So far we've got 93 votes for 19,000 members. Let's close that gap up a bit, shall we?

Just a friendly reminder that for your vote to count, you have to vote in the actual poll on the desktop site. Comments or posts on their own will not be taken into account.

How come the number of votes exceed the number of voters?

Alright sports fans, that's a wrap on the voting shenanigans. We've got ourselves a clear winner. The winner of this fight, by a margin of more than two to one over the second place finisher, is burgee #1. Feast your eyes upon it's magnificence:
