- Washington, DC.
- The Philippines
- Canada
- Greenland
- Central America
- Cuba
- Dominica
- Dominican Republic
- Haiti
- Japan
- New Zealand

and others.

Some people have wanted to separate New York City from the rest of the State as the 51st State. Most of them live upstate.

the more, the merrier. if we add a group of states, we can keep the star pattern on our flag more similar to what it is now.

Isn't the whole point of DC so that it is above State influence ?

If Puerto Rico gets in I hope they go with this design.

I like that one better too. Send it to your congressman and senators now, this could happen fast. FYI: congress weighs regular mail more heavily than email and handwritten more than typed letters.
