The flag of Maryland is divided into four rectangles. It consists of the seals and the colors of the Calvert family and Baltimore. The flag was built up from the arms of the Calvert and Crossland family, just as the arms of Lord Baltimore existed. He was the founder and the only 'owner' of the colony.
The flag of Maryland is the only heraldic banner of the US states, which was officially adopted in 1904. At the request of King Charles the I of England, the colony was to be called 'Maryland' by Lord Baltimore. He wanted this in honor of his wife Henrietta Maria (Queen Mary).
