A video posted to Twitter by comedian Matt Buechele not only roasts all of the state flags, but provides a nice educational moment. Because chances are you do not know how to identify every state flag.

The two-minute, 19-second video shows images of all the state flags with a voiceover. And Matt wants you to know that if you don’t like your state flag’s joke, then too bad.
if you’re not happy with your flag’s joke, i apologize. much like tyler perry i am currently a one man writers room— Matt Buechele (@mattbooshell) January 22, 2020
Alabama: This flag literally says “no”.
Arizona: This just looks like North Korean propaganda
Indiana: The stars represent all the people who have fled Indiana for a better life.
Maryland: This looks like the flag for Robot Island.
Mississippi: This is a little racism, but make it chic.
North Dakota: This eagle looks like he could be playing Settlers of Catan.
Ohio: This flag looks like it got shrunk in the laundry.
And, let’s not forget New Mexico, the only state flag that did not get roasted.
According to Wikipedia, the symbol on the New Mexico state flag is the red sun symbol of the Zia people, and highlights the state’s “Native American Pueblo and Nuevo México Hispano roots.”
As we mentioned previously, the post is full of educational moments, like this Twitter user, who pointed out Oregon’s flag has two (2!!!) sides to it.
I just want to say 1. This is great, thank you, and 2. The Oregon flag is actually two-sided, and the other side is WAY better: pic.twitter.com/AKvh9iHZ2V

The Oregon flag wasn’t the only major reveal here, either.
I’m crying and also never realized Minnesota’s flag has…..an end year?! Why?!

Luckily, we got the answer we were looking for.
Wait… it took them 35 YEARS to adopt a state flag?
