Marriage Equality Flag Update

You may recall back in December when JMG reader Mark tipped us to his concept for a marriage equality flag, one in which stars are added as states legalize same-sex marriage. Eight months ago, Mark explained:
The flag is based in the custom of 19th century suffragettes. At their annual convention they would add a star to the flag for each state that had adopted a women's right to vote. Although there is no official order - the stars are generally read right to left in the order they were admitted to the Union. Represented are - Massachusetts and Connecticut.
And now, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and Iowa.(Update via Box Turtle Bulletin)
