This flag was adopted on November 25, 1904. The colors of the flag are yellow, black, red and white. The flag was designed inOctober, 1889. The designer is unknown. The design is taken from the shield in the coat of arms of the Calvert family, the colonial proprietors of the state of Maryland. The coat of arms included a shield that had the yellow and black colors of his paternal family and the red and white colors of his maternal family, the Crosslands. There are some arguments that the red and white colors that are used as those of the Crosslands is a misrepresentation. It may be that the colors are those of the Mynne family, the family name of Anne Calvert, wife of George Calvert. The arms of the Calvert and Crossland (Mynne) families are displayed in diagonally opposing quadrants of the flag. All outdoor flags are finished with heading and brass grommets (H&G). PH denotes pole hem for indoor and parade use. PHF denotes pole hem and gold fringe.
