    If Communism had its way, none of those countries would have been split in the first place. The split was due to both capitalism and communism opposing one another.

    Think of the Soviet Union as a magnetic pole, hence why Germany is split East-West and Korea and Vietnam North-South. Doesn't explain Cuba, though. :p

    @oshron: I really like your star-patterns, it's motivated me to post the rest of my alt. U.S. Flags as well.

    Starting with one you've already seen, The Flag of the 13 Colonies:
    U.S. Flag 0 (Flag of the 13 Colonies - 13 stars).png

    Secondly, the Flag of the Confederation (Articles of Confederation era - 17 stars):
    U.S. Flag 1 (Flag of the Confederation - 17 stars).png

    Next, the first Flag after the Constitution (19 stars):
    U.S. Flag 2 (19 stars).png

    ok, i had this idea for a new flag of the united states, what if insted of every star representing on state, every point represents one state
    example: 50 states: there are 10 5 pointed stars and 51 states: 17 3 pointed stars and so forth

    and for the prime numbers like 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97 etc. it would be that number of circles/dots

    such as this i made for a 50 state (the circle is really bad and i apologize)

    Interesting...
    (Potentially confusing to inter-timeline travelers though. :p)


    My next one is actually one I'm having trouble deciding on, it's the flag post-War of 1812 (21 stars).
    I've narrowed it down to two configurations that look equally good in the flag waver site.
    U.S. Flag 3 (PostWar-of-1812 21 stars)-B.png U.S. Flag 3 (PostWar-of-1812 21 stars)-D.png

    If I was religious, I'd pray for your town to get a new flag.

    Looks more like a flag for a yachting country club. ._.

    Flag 4 in my TL, circa 1818 (28 stars), is also one of the more bland. It's just a rectangle of stars:
    U.S. Flag 4 (circa 1818 28 stars).png
    Flag 5 is circa 1820 (31 stars):
    U.S. Flag 5 (circa 1820 31 stars).png
    Flag 6 circa 1836 (34 stars):

    Continuing, Flag 7 circa 1845 (42 stars - another boring rectangle):

    Flag 8 circa 1852 (46 stars):
    U.S. Flag 8 (circa 1852 46 stars).png
    Flag 9 circa 1860 (50 stars - last flag before my TL's version of the Civil War):

    {Time 4 Backstory!: In my TL slavery was earmarked for gradual abolition right from the last days of the Continental Congress. So what the wealthy "landed gentry" of the Plantation Class in the south did was flat out illegal by Federal Law. That's why ITTL the "Civil War" is always referred to as the Southern Rebellion. The Rebellion had their statehoods revoked and reduced to the status of territorries from which new states would be carved, a process referred to as Repatriation.}

    Flag 10 - Rebellion Era 1861-1865 (41 stars)

    Flag 11 - Repatriation Era 1865 (45 stars)
    U.S. Flag 11 (1865 - Repatriation-era 45 stars).png
    Flag 12 - Repatriation Era 1866 (50 stars - this is the most commonly seen flag depicting the 50 star Union)

    How about creating a 2,017 states flag?
