  1. New Hampshire, because a ship looks better than a tree with cow (or whatever that animal is).
    West Virginia, because that blue border is at least unique. Delaware's colors just seem kind of washed out.
    New York, because the white on Massachusetts' has an "I surrender!" feel.
    D.C., no contest, it's the only one in this round that isn't a seal on a background color. Even if you change the background, it's still boring.
    Virginia, because it is the only flag with a half-naked woman on it.
    Pennsylvania, at least on PA's flag, the horses look like they're doing something. The CT grapevines are just growing, I guess.

  3. Vermont - Both VT and NH look kind of cartoony, but I'll VT the win for the stag.
    Delaware, because the chick on the right has a great hat
    New York, because hot chicks over Squanto any day
    DC - finally a simple flag without all the scribbly detail
    Virginia - half-dressed hot chick wins
    Connecticut - love those dollar sign trees

  4. "Connecticut - love those dollar sign trees"

    Those aren't trees. Those are grape vines.

  7. VT - but both are bad.
    DE - again, both bad, but DE's is slightly more distinctive
    MA - man, these are hard to pick between two evils!
    DC (x2) - no question, always has been one of my faves.
    VA - "two evils" choice again
    PA - but yet again, pretty much a coin flip.

    Can't wait until the east round is finished
