Maryland State Flags
Maryland’s colony was originally founded by Cecil Calvert and this is why the Calvert family black and gold coat of arms is on the flag. George Calvert adopted his coat of arms, which was slightly different, in that it included both his paternal and maternal family; hence, the Maryland state flag. (he red and white design on the opposite quadrants is from the Crossland family, George Calvert’s mother). Adopted in 1904, Maryland is the only state flag that is based on British heraldry.
We're proud to offer the Maryland state flag in two different outdoor fabrics, including nylon for an Maryland flag that flies in a light wind and an extra-tough polyester Maryland flag designed to withstand the elements. Even our miniature 4 inch by 6 inch Maryland flags mounted to a plastic dowel are perfect for classroom, special events, parades and more! Looking for something for a parade or indoor application? Our indoor fringed Maryland flags feature luxurious gold fringe on 3 sides and a pole sleeve end for a clean look.
