Should Washington State's flag be redesigned to have Booker T. Washington's likeness instead of George Washington?
There are economic an aesthetic reasons against a total flag overhaul that may offset any benefits.
The benefits of a symbolic gesture like this are intangible and limited, while the economic costs are too high for what little is achieved.
Putting a face on a flag is generally thought of as a
poor design choice
. If WA redesigns their flag it should be made with good design in mind
Economic cost should not be the only measure to consider when implementing policy.
