The Massachusetts gay flag is a combination of rainbow gay flag and the state ensign- not the state flag as in other states. The white square field charged with green pine tree is placed in the canton of rainbow flag and occupies half of the flag width. The tree is visibly darker than green stripe, making the flag another of those which employ two shades of a same color, in this case green. The flag was seen at the Boston Gay Pride, on 2014-06-14:
