    Flag Thread

    As far as I know, there was no Flag Thread on this forum, so I decided to start one. Post your flags, requests and questions here.

    1. I have worked on flag of Republic of Transilvania (approximately OTL Romania region without sea access) in my Pol-Swe-Lit Commonwealth thread (POD in mid-XVI), and managed to get this flag. The main problem is, I think that flag is not intuitive enough.
    - Historical Transilvanian colors are blue (top), red (middle), yellow (bottom), can you guess the reason that they have been overlaid by black border and black "central canton"?
    - What do those seven towers imply? (hint: there is no moon, sun, or black eagle on this flag) And why aren't they monocolored?
    2. Suppose Brittany was conquered by Great Britain sometime during or after French Revolution (or it's ATL equivalent). Would Union Jack be altered to reflect this new territorial gain (assuming it stayed in GB possession?)

    Intended to be the flag equivalent to Diamond's Map Thread, obviously. Here you can post flags without having to come up with any explanation or timeline for them.

    To start with, here's an old favourite: the Celtic United States.

    Good good, more already.

    Here's the flag of a Union Jack incorporating the St David's Cross of Wales. It's also the flag of the future Britain from the MOONSTRUCK timeline:

    But it violates all the rules of heraldry! The black touches blue! :eek: :p

    And to post another flag, the flag of the United Empire of North America from my "Peacefully United North America" scenario, again from awhile back- unfortuately my image of the Burgundy Cross wasn't too good.

    Hmm, didn't see this before I started my own flag thread. My apologies.

    But I had been planning to start a Flag Thread here for months, just never got around to it.

    Send a personal message to Ian, or to a moderator and have them merge the two threads.

    Is that the flag where British Zionism (the idea that the British are descended from the ten lost tribes) is true?

    Speaking of Star of David flags..

    Hm, I tried to make a flag for an Irish controlled England (in the style of the old British colonial flags, of course)...

    No, it doesn't seem to work, Imajin. I can see what you're trying to do but the eye just goes straight to the English cross and...

    Wait. Maybe it would work if I used the English lions instead of the St Georges cross...

    Here are two variations. I could still use a better picture of the 3 lions though...
