    Have a few Communism-themed flags I've made in Flag Maker 2.0 hanging around, thought I might as well share them:

    These were made mostly out of a whim to see how far I can push the limits of Flag Maker's limited roster of emblems and shapes and still come out with some unique designs.

    Well that is a combination I had not considered. Did you make this one?

    Some more flags I made in Flag Maker 2.0 a long while ago, this time fascist/national-populist themed flags:

    American Union State from Kaiserreich:

    Redesign for the Fascist USA "Free American Empire" in Hearts of Iron 4:

    [​IMG]

    Fascist Chinese Empire:

    [​IMG]

    Fascist Austria-Hungary combining motifs from the Austrian "Fatherland Front" and the Hungarian "Arrow Cross" Parties:

    (Albanian double-headed eagle is the closest approximation I had for the Austrian double-headed eagle.)

    Redesign for Fascist Israel "Israeli Totalitariat" in Hearts of Iron 4, inspired by Kach party colors:

    I wish Flag Maker 2.0 worked on Windows 10 properly, I've been having a continuous problem with Java Runtime Environment that prevents me from booting it up and I haven't seen any solutions online for it:

    In the Reddit thread, it said to download the Linux version, which worked for me.

    It's not so much power than it is creative use of assets available to you. Precision and creativity are all you need to work with Flag Maker 2.0. Still, it'd be nice if there was a way to add more emblem overlays to the roster to increase variety...

    new MA flag 3.png

    I made an updated version of those ideas for a new Massachusetts flag I made last September, this time with an updated color scheme. Like how the Nova Scotia flag is an inverse of St. Andrew's Cross, an inverse of St. George's Cross is the basis for this as Massachusetts is a core part of New England. I experimented with differing placements of blue, red, and green and thought that the blue corners and green stripe outline looked the most aesthetically pleasing. The blue represents liberty and Massachusetts's maritime history, the green represents it being a part of New England (the tree in the New England flag is a similar shade), the white represents peace, and the star represents Massachusetts being a U.S. state.

    Eh, have some more flags from my collection:

    [​IMG]

    A flag for a Libyan Socialist Republic.

    [​IMG]

    A Christian Socialist Ireland.

    [​IMG]

    A flag for the Sorelians from the French Commune in Kaiserreich. The conflicting symbolism is intentional: the Sorelians were proto-fascists, and thus loonies.

    The next three here are Communist flag redesigns for the Benelux countries in Hearts of Iron 4:

    [​IMG]

    Communist Netherlands, aka the People's United Provinces.

    [​IMG]

    Communist Belgium, aka the Cooperative of Belgium.

    [​IMG]

    And Communist Luxembourg, aka Rosa Luxembourg, as Paradox so cheekily names it in an incredibly lame pun.

    [​IMG]

    The Cybernetic Republic of Chile, in which a surviving Allende government continues developing Project Cybersyn to a resounding success.

    [​IMG]

    Lastly, a flag redesign for the Republic of Chad, created to differentiate it from the Republic of Romania. I combined the designs of these two flags I've found on r/Vexillology.

    EDIT: Hey guys, if you're going to be Liking this post and others, why not visit the thread in my Signature? I use some of the flags I've posted here too!

    The Flag of the Republica Mexicana del Norte [or North Mexico], a US protectorate from 1851 to 1943, when it was dissoluted to form the Republics of Sonora-Sinaloa, Chihuahua, and Durango.
