The 51-star US Flag


On Tuesday, the majority of the voting citizens of Puerto Rico who indicated they wanted a change in status said they would like the island to become the 51st state of the United States. That’s a long way from statehood, but it is a step. The immediate question arose as to what a flag with 51 stars would look like. Redditors were eager to suggest designs, the best of which you can find at The Daily Dot. My favorite is the Pac-Man flag, which sadly, was later determined to have only 50 stars. Link

(As commenter Gil C. Schmidt 1 points out, only about 45% voted for statehood, after you take the two-part referendum question into account.)
