Roundels are used on military aircraft as a type of national insignia that takes elements from the national flag. Civil Standard wondered what it would look like if American cities and states had their own roundels based on their respective flags. This is our take on the flag of New England in roundel form. 

The flag of New England dates to the Revolutionary War, and was depicted by John Trumbull in The Death of General Warren at the Battle of Bunker's Hill, June 17, 1775. This flag has also been adopted by the New England Revolution Major League Soccer team.

"To the rest of the country, New England has always stood in much the same relation as England has to America -- that of spiritual homeland and mother country." -B.A. Botkin
