These new standards utilize data visualization in a heraldic form to reveal facts about our country, from the obvious to the sublime: 1 in 32 Americans are in prison, 3.2 percent of us are vegetarian, and 1 in 4 of us has been on TV. While sometimes superficial, these new metrics reveal aspects of America that go deeper than traditional patriotic symbols.

Click through the images below to get a sampling of the interesting and sometimes depressing statistics, and you can view all of the flags and their accompanying explanations here.
