    I vote for the 3rd option (not shown) where the stars are made into the shape of a star, that way if ever another added you could say hey look its already there

In any event, there is some chance we'll need a 51-star flag at some point. Here are two possible designs. I'll name them above each so that you can vote for whichever one you like best.

    Basic Design (essentially the same flag with just one more star)


    Circular Stars (stars forming a circle for the first time since we had only 13 states)


    Of course another option would be to make both flags official. You would have the choice of which one you want to fly.
    Tough decision. The first flag I saw with stars arranged linerally looked raggedy because the stars were smaller.

    The one posted here looks nicer because the stars are larger. I do like the circular arrangement though too because it reminds me of the first flag when we only had 13 states.

    This one I like way better than the one posted because the stars are bigger:

    Hopefully, we won't need one. If we take on another state, we need one which is an asset, and not a net cost.

    I like the top one. I see a starfish pattern within the field of stars on that one for some reason....

    Basic design.

    Never liked the circular design, whether it was our older flags or this new proposition.

    This one has the government eating the people and is far more indicative of the current political climate.

    I like the circular because the stars form a big star in the center, signifying that we are one nation.
