|The Culturally Reversed Massachusetts Flag|

But with my modifications, a Native American version of a star is in the canton position of the shield, which is the white plus symbol. Also, the arm is matches the posture, coming out of the heraldic wreath. Orenski's version had the hand off set 90 degrees. Finally, my version has a red field, while Peter's version had white shield for the Pilgrim.
Dr. Orenski was one of the primary voices in vexillology, who recently passed away last year. He is sorely missed and was a great inspiration to everyone connected to vexillology. Originally from Romania, Peter was a bright star in vexillology. This flag is for Peter. I am ever grateful for his work, as vexillologist who lives in his afterglow.
