Real flag photo looks better[edit]

Re: change at this diff. I don't know if that's the photo of the real flag since I thought I read it was not in that great shape, but it does look better and more realistic than a mere graphic. CarolMooreDC (talk) 01:13, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

The photo of physical flag is a nice image, and does belong somewhere on the Flag of the Green Mountain Boys page. But here it is inconsistent with the other flags which are all graphic representations.
looking over the other state flag pages, shows the same approach, favoring graphics over photos for informational purposes. The same is also generally true for pages about countries, military units, etc., in that infoboxes use graphics over photos. —MJBurrage(TC) 10:41, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
Whatever. I was just mostly interested in figuring out the history which was a bit different across various articles. CarolMooreDC (talk) 14:46, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
Yea, there is no definitive answer, since flags does not seem to be something they worried about on paper until the 1800s. So while it is almost certain that they had a flag or flags they considered to be Vermont flags. All we know know is that none was legally official, and that only the Green Mountain Boys flag can be definitively tied back to the era in question. So did they consider the militia flag to be the Republic's flag, or did they use a flag with the Seal (essentially what we have today). We will probably never know, but the continued use of the GMB flag by both the National Guard and historians as a stand in for a VR flag, gives us what we do have. —MJBurrage(TC) 18:39, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
