Design Question: Statehood for Puerto Rico?

Puerto Rico. Palm trees. Beaches. Sun. Rum. And almost 4 million people—about 1,000 people per square mile. At the end of the Spanish Civil War, the island was ceded to the U.S., and though the people of Puerto Rico were all made U.S. citizens in 1917, they’ve lived in an incorporated territory for a long time.

There’s a bill now in Congress to authorize a plebiscite that could give voters in Puerto Rico the option to become a full-fledged state. Just how would they  bring “Old Glory” up to speed?

    I would like to see Puerto Rico’s notorious Chupacabra represented on the flag.

    This would be a great contest to open up to all.
    I love the chaotic one and the little triangle appendage.
