The State Flag
Maryland has the only state flag based on heraldic emblems. It has the family crests of the Calvert and Crossland families. Maryland was founded as an English colony in 1634 by Cecil Calvert, the second Lord Baltimore. The black and Gold designs belong to the Calvert family. The red and white design belongs to the Crossland family (maternal line of George Calvert). Some say the red and white design is from the Mynne family (family of George Calvert's wife, Anne.)
