The state's outline looks like a handgun. Crab gets my vote.

I like the crab too (from the 3 choices). I would not mind seeing a Black-Eyed Susan
bloom near the crab as well. Just for color.. Gita

I agree. State's flower and food specialty are a winning combo.

I like the way the crab is leaning towards the flower as though to sniff it! :-)

Robin, it's not trying to sniff it. The crab is offering it to you.

In reality, the only way I could get them both in the space was to turn the crab.

Not so sweet. It's hoping that you will be so taken by getting the flower that you won't want to have that crab cake for lunch !

Slightly off topic. Best crab cakes are at G&M Resto near BWI. Can opt to buy crab cakes, cook them at home. Fab desserts too.
