What could be more American than the American flag? As any American school kid knows, the stars and stripes are not merely decorative. Each element in the flag represents information: 13 horizontal strips represent the 13 original colonies and 50 stars stand for the 50 states. Commissioned in 2012 by SFMoMA to ‘rebrand America,’ MGMT. created 50 new flags based existing conditions of a changing nation.
