Independence Day is when we really let our patriotism show, but just how patriotic is Minnesota? Not very, according to the real estate website Movoto.

Minnesota ranked 49 out of 50 on their list of most patriotic states. The rankings were based on the number of veterans per capita, people who use Google to search to buy an American flag, and the percentage of voters who turned out in the last presidential election, among other criteria.

While Minnesota did great in the voter category, it was near the bottom for all others.

The least patriotic state is California, and the most patriotic state is South Carolina.
