51-star flag

In the wake of Puerto Rico's overwhelming vote in favor of U.S. statehood, what would a 51-star flag look like? There are many possibilities. Picture above is the likely answer, but the top one here is a wonderfully cheeky option. My thought is this: isn't D.C. going to scream blue murder if Puerto Rico gets in and it does not? Maybe we should be looking at 52 star flags. [Smithsonian via The Awl]
