Canton taken from my "Union of Great Britain" flag.
The flag of New England was first used just after the 1931 Statute of Westminster gave New England its independence. The Union Flag makes up the canton. Its fourteen stripes represent the thirteen provinces and the federal territory. The blue, white, and red stripes on the top right quarter of the flag signify the colors (red, white, and blue) that had always been most associated with New England. Red stands for the Aboriginals, as well as for the blood shed to make the nation. White stands for the European colonists, as well as for purity. Blue, a neutral color, stands for all other immigrants who have made New England their home, as well as for reason and intelligence. Starting from the bottom red stripe in the flag, and excluding the white stripes, there is a rainbow (red, gold/yellow, green, blue). This rainbow also stands for diversity that both the population and nature exhibit, while each of the colors also has a specific meaning. Yellow/Gold is for the sun that is rising over the nation. (It is also the stripe associated with the Federal Territory, but officially, no stipe represents one particular entity.) Green is for the prolific nature to be found in New England. Finally, blue is for the the water bodies in and surrounding New England, which are full of life.
