I could ask you the same thing, when have you ever seen one giant cloud like that.
It looks more like the Fort canning hill which is covered by trees.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how realistic do these clouds look?

About as realistic as the waves of the sea. ;) All in all, the design is not bad, quite dynamic. I think it would have "worked" even without those pseudo-clouds ...

Ah well, Delaware is a relatively small state, so they have relatively small clouds. ;D  The building depicted is the Old Swedes Church in Wilmington, and I suppose the cloud has some religious relevance. You can find many coins and medals (mostly but not only with a Lutheran background) from, say, the 1700s, with a hand coming out of a cloud. Here are three different ones; links only, sorry. God's eye surrounded by clouds. Rain and clouds symbolizing bad harvests and starvation (followed by a better year on the other side). And talking about strangely shaped clouds, in Mannheim they even had clouds with hands. ;D
