Other versions[edit]

Which is more correct? What is the correct aspect ratio? Background color? --ChrisRuvolo (t) 18:19, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

Left/Right[edit]

I'm assuming left/right mean when looking at the flag? This should be clarified, however, becuase it is not clear whether it means right, for example, when looking at it, or it's right. //MrD9 09:11, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

Pre-1901 flag?[edit]

What did the flag look like prior to 1901? Or was there no state flag then? Шизомби 13:58, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Problem[edit]

The page begins by stating "The flag of the State of New York is the state's coat of arms on a blue background". Go, however, to the Seal of New York page, and look at the image there. At first glance, the image on that page and on this page may seem identical - yet take a good look at an enlarged version of them both, and a wide range of differences become apparent. Is there a reason for this. Maybe, the official specifications of what the image is supposed to look like are simply not that strict or specific. The images shown on both pages would seem to conform to the blazon given on this page. Does anyone have any answers? - 121.208.89.99 (talk) 03:19, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
