    I saw how people got pissed off at the challenges. However I would like some help in making some flags for my 2012 Nuclear War TL. I posted some flags earlier, but I don't like them that much. Before I post the actual request, I would like to know if anyone is actually interested.

    If they are legitimate requests, then you will find several people interested (for example, see Hannibal's request). It is the endless list of pointless, random challenges that do not stimulate good flag design that bothers people.

    I've been lurking for a couple of months now, figured this would be a good time to make my first post. :D Forgive me if this one has been done before.

    This second one is kind of an abomination (I got the canton kind of screwed up), however I have been known to beat a dead whale, er, horse from time to time.

    You really shouldn't have a canton in a flag with the same layout of stripes. The eagle is low quality, I assume it was quite small and you enlarged it? I suggest you find a larger version of it, like the one on this flag:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_of_Prussia_1892-1918.svg

    There are also quite a few mistakes, like that white gap between the right edge of the canton and the black stripe, and fact that the edges of the stripes aren't straight, horizontal lines.

    Socialist Cascadia, for alternatehistorybuff. I chose the traditional colors of the Cascadian flag, added in a socialist red star, and then decided to use a whipsaw to symbolize the region's large timber industry. Took me *forever* to find a public domain whipsaw.

    California - three stars for the three parts of the country (North coast, South coast and Inland). Symbols show the three pillars of the country:agriculture, industry, and technology
    Cascadia - green for the land, peace symbol for the politics, socialist wreath for the propoganda
    Deseret - based on a Mormon flag i found
    Texas - I moved the capital to Dallas
    United States of Latin America -16 clear diamonds for 16 states in Union
    United Kingdom of England and Wales
    Iberian Union - Combination of the royal standards for Portugal and Spain
    Baltic Federation -
    Muscovy
    Holy Kingdom of Russia
    Republic Siberia - centered on Irkutsk, broken chains indicating the freedom from Muscovite opression, scimtars for resolve in defense
    People's Republic of Kamchatka - ripples for the sea, shore and mountains. Ursa Maritimus is national symbol
    People's Republic of Manchuria - altered flag of Manchurian independence movement
    Republic of China
    USA minus six stars - I figured a reduced USA wouldn't reconfigure the stars, but leave empty spots in tribute to the lost states...

    That England and Wales one doesn't look right.

    Wales should be more like this:

    Those are all great flags Dutchie, but you should know that the capital of Texas never was, never is, nor never shall be Dallas:mad::mad::mad::p

    I must confess ignorance as to why Wales should be lions instead of the dragon...

    Nuclear War can lead to the most terrible of things... :eek:

    It was the banner of Llywelyn (the last Prince of Wales before it was annexed by England) and I think it was the unofficial flag of Wales at the time.

    I dunno... this doesn't look as balanced to me - too much red, gold and lions...
