Step aside, Minnesota β€” Iowa's iconic red, white and blue flag is the best in the Midwest, according to Midwest vs. Everybody.

State of play: The social media account ranked every flag in the region with Iowa's coming out No. 1, the Register reports.

What they're saying: Of course, our top prize didn't come without some objections.

  • Minnesota's new seal and flag design wasn't reflected in the contest β€” something our friends at Axios Twin Cities called out. They were 12/12 in this ranking.
  • Ohio's flag is the only one with a "swallow-tail" design, but didn't get any points for originality. 5/12.
