New Manitoba Flag

Sean Incognito posts that some politicos in Manitoba would like the province to adopt a new flag design. He suggests wonders what specific design elements could be included to make it uniquely ours.

A stylized mosquito on a background of Arctic White? The Golden Boy, topped by a bust of Burton Cummings, riding a bison?
The "Golden Boy" refers to hockey hero, Bobby Hull.

A giant mosquito? possibly a red one, replacing the maple leaf in the current Canadian flag. Great idea!

Update: Did I ever goof! from the comments:

Bobby Hull is the Golden Jet. The Golden Boy is the figure on top of the Legislative Building in Winnipeg....

Thanks for the correction! But a flag with the Golden Jet on it might be worthy of consideration, too.
