Original Maine State Flag Making A Comeback

The original official flag of the state of Maine was simple and unique:  a buff background with a big green pine tree in the middle and a blue star at the top left. But the original 1901 flag was replaced in 1909 by a more complicated state-seal-on-navy-blue-background design common among state flags in America; a flag company that started making the old flag last year is getting a lot of orders, according to the Bangor Daily News.
