Hi. Great design. It would be hard not to be better than the state's current flag but nonetheless you have come up with a sound design. I agree that retaining the distinctive blue border makes perfect sense, the colour combination is bright, cheerful and relatively unusual. The stars may be deemed a trifle arbitrary but I think they are acceptable because their presence conveys an obvious Americaness about the design and I also think that they are attractively composed, the yellow, on blue on white is effective and eye-catching. I think the use of pick and hammer is also well thought out but my only real criticism would be the retention of the shield. I just don't think it's really necessary especially as its particular shape with detailed curlicues and so forth seems to add unhelpful complication to the flag. So my only suggestion would be to lose the shield altogether, thus;
Alternatively, rather than so detailed a shield perhaps you could try a more regular "heater" shape or even perhaps a circle. Anyway just some thoughts and again well done.
