NFL kickoff is so close that you can almost taste it!  What better way to start the season than against the Ravens archival, the Pittsburgh Steelers?  If you’re headed out to The Bank for week one, then we want you to show your Ravens pride against the towel waving fans of Pittsburgh with a Fan Flag from the guys at Maryland’s Team.

If you aren’t familiar with their Fan Flag, then you’re in for a real treat.  Ravens fans have tried for years to find ways to wash out those terrible yellow towels, but this year the Fan Flag from Maryland’s Team is finally the solution.

Here’s what the guys at Maryland’s Team had to say about their Fan Flag in its debut during week one.

What can we do to unify Ravens fans and give them a visual identity on gameday? Well, the Ravens were born in Baltimore, Marlyand. Reason enough to believe that most of the fans would be from Maryland (that’s how I became a fan). Also, the Ravens’ uniforms sport a shield on the sleeve with portions of the Maryland flag, as do the Orioles. Suddenly, it all becomes clear. Marylander’s have great PRIDE and RESPECT for their flag. It’s an awesome flag and is easily the most identifiable in the country. Of course, we had to make it purple!

So, Ravens fans, let’s show our pride and raise our flags to this great Baltimore born team. Be respectful and show all those who challenge us why we are the greatest fans – we are Maryland’s Team!

If that doesn’t get you geared up for the game then nothing will.

We have three Fan Flags to give away to random lucky commenters to this post. Just leave a comment below and you’re eligible to win the Fan Flag.

If you aren’t one of the lucky three, check out the Maryland’s Team online store or visit their gameday location near the stadium to buy one and combat the Steelers fans!
