If anyone is interested, the poll for the latest Weekly Flag Challenge has been posted. Really like the flags this time around!
I think you might try different shades, tints, saturations, and ratios for the colors. I find that you can get any two clashing colors to work well together if you find just the right versions of them. A lighter blue, for instance, would probably do the first and second versions a favor, and a more faded, subdued, fleshy-colored red would benefit all of them. It also has the effect of making it look more like cloth and less like RGB code.
Republic of Spacefilleria.
A flag for the Black Lives Matter movement. The white band was added after the Justine Damond shooting in solidarity with white and other non-black victims of criminal injustice and the scales represent their call for a fair criminal and civil justice system.
I took some of the advice into consideration and decided to tinker with the second flag a bit, coming down to these four
Flag 1: The hues with the red stripes are brightened to a color to that of the original French flag with a lighter blue hue, both colors changed in their respective areas of stars as well
Flag 2: The hues with the red stripes are darkened to a color to that of the American flag with a lighter blue hue, both colors changed in their respective areas of stars as well
Flag 3: Both red and blue are darkened to similar hues of the American flag in a more weathered cloth appeal to connect to the green
Flag 4: Only the red stripes get the French red treatment with the blue getting the weathered American treatment
Really like Flag 4.
Quick Flag update for my TL
Here's a small low-effort things I did: a flag proposal for an Israeli-Palestinian federation.
It includes a blue stripe and a green stripe - representing, respectively, Israeli Jews and Palestinians, while doing away with the overtly-nationalist symbology (like the star of David) as neither side will be able to identify with the other side's national symbols, on a white background representing peace (also, white appears in both the Israeli and Palestinian flags, so it could be seen as a unifying element on the flag). A vertical stripe runs in the middle, connecting both colors - this represents socialism (because honestly, an Israeli-Palestinian federation would probably be quite left-wing), and it runs vertical to connect the green and the blue - thus it stands for solidarity between the working classes of both nations, and the red also represents the blood shed in the (now-past) conflict between the two peoples.
What if you add a gold stripe for prosperity and Jerusalem, and then a star to represent the Christian population (i.e. Star of Bethlehem)?
Woah, that flag does look similar!
(to clarify, I was not ripping off the Central African Republic's flag, and only noticed the similarities once I completed my Israel-Palestine one)
Quick one for you: the flag of the Commonwealth of New England from 1889 to 1951. The nine stars represent the nine provinces of New England, being in order of precedence: Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Nova Scotia, Vermont, New Brunswick, Rhode Island, and Prince Edward Island.

Flag for an independent New Orleans. The woman is Marianne, a symbol of the French revolution.
I had a question for any Poles who might read this: does the symbol used by the national radical camp, falanga etc.
Derive orginally from the naval jack?
Even searching Polish internet nets me no answers.
