Future Glory by YNot1989 Future Glory by YNot1989
Suppose that when humans begin to colonize other worlds the US is still alive in one form or another. Won't that mean that there will be many additional states being brought into the union, and thereby many additional stars to the US flag?

A solution may be to start counting plantets or star systesms with US territories for each star. This one proposes 27 systems with the star in the center representing Sol or Earth.

Plus it looks cool ;P

The Outer Colonies

The Inner Colonies

Colonial Mars

It reminds me the flag from the Fallout universe which is really cool!

Nice job :D

One problem with showing a star for each solar system is that a solar system with only one state is represented equally to a solar system with 50 or more states.

No different than representing states with only one congressional district equally with a state with 50.

I suppose. It was only meant as a small criticism. I do think its a very nice flag.

Could also represent additional states on Earth as well. I mean eventually, if we do add more, the flag won't be able to hold more than 50 stars in its blue square. It'll get really crowded and look ridiculous. So why not have the big star represent say 25 or 50 states and the smaller ones are the newer states.

Actually there are already conceptual designs for flags with more stars. Not for any reason, just because people wanted to see what it looked like I guess. Personally I like the idea for the 51 star flag with the stars arranged in a circle. There's a widget somewhere on the net that actually generates American flags with up to 100 stars based on an algorithm on how to best place them... I had the website but it appears to be gone from there. I have not since found it, sadly.
