What do Calgary and Colorado have in common, besides the Rockies? (hint: flags.)
They are two of my favorite flags. And they both use their common first initial as the main focus of the flag.
I’m sure someone will prove me wrong shortly, but these are pretty much the only flags I can think of that use one letter so prominently, so it’s funny that apparently it’s C that lends itself so well to graphic design on flags. Let’s forget for a moment that Ohio’s flag uses a circle that’s ambiguously standing in for its own initial, because that flag seems confused on a number of fronts and it’s much easier to focus on its unusual shape than its boring yet wayward American features.
Anyway. I like Colorado’s flag for its use of colors and kind of 80s tshirt look, but I LOVE Calgary’s flag for its wacky proportions and not-too-well-designed cowboy hat. DK says it’s like Calgary is shilling for Arby’s. He may be onto something.
