  MARYLAND STATE FLAG ON THE LEFT
by matcrazy1
 
 

This colorful flag on the left, on my picture, looks the most unique of all 13 flags of the 13 original colonies put in front of the Colonial Williamsburg's Visitor Center.

I got to know that it's the state flag of Maryland (adopted in 1904) and the only US state flag based on British heraldry (the coats of arms of noble families).
