    Flag Maker has its limitations, so I can't really do anything there.

    I tried using a lighter blue, but I found it too eye-searing to for me to use, so I went with a shade that's easier on the eyes. I could try again though...

    Just tested it out, found it not as good as the current design. Nice suggestion, though.

    A proposal for a Flag of the Hispanicity, this flag displays:
    -The Cross of Burgundy (ensign of the Hispanic Monarchy)
    -The coat of arms of the Catholic Monarchs, the monarchs that unified the crowns of Aragon and Castile, thus creating Spain
    -The Pillars of Hercules with the motto "Plus Ultra" (Further Beyond)
    -The two hemispheres of the Earth (Referring to "Spanish of both hemispheres" as was stated in the Cádiz Constitution of 1812)
    -The sun of Inti with the date of 1492 in Roman numerals
    -The three crosses of the Flag of the Race, referring to the three ships that reached America (La Niña, La Pinta y La Santa María)

    Luna is been built by Americans and Japaneses, and actually their culture resemble that of XXI Japan.

    Some new flags tonight: nothing much, just all Fascist/Nationalist flags, two for Africa and one for South America. Let's start with the former:

    [​IMG]

    This one here is for a Nationalist Mozambique, and... that's about it, really. Truth be told, I just lazily copied the design from HoI4's roster of flags. Of course, Paradox's flag designs are really lazy in general anyways, so... meh?:idontcare:

    [​IMG]

    This one here is, like the one before, just a lazy recreation of a HoI4 flag - this time for a Nationalist Algeria. Well, technically, the name I have for it is Waṭaniyy Algeria. Fun fact: The modern Arabic language actually has two distinct words which can be translated into English as "nationalism": qawmiyya قومية, derived from the word qawm (meaning "tribe, ethnic nationality"), and wataniyya وطنية, derived from the word watan (meaning "homeland, native country"). *Definitions lazily brought to you by plagiarizing Wikipedia.* The latter term is what is used here, being specifically for Algerian nationalism called "Algerianism".

    Now, for tonight's only South American entry:

    [​IMG]

    National Vanguard Chile! And surprisingly, although the base inspiration does show up in HoI4, it turns out the flag this one is based on does exist, along with the fascist party it belonged to: the National Socialist Movement of Chile, and later, its successor the Popular Socialist Vanguard (of which the HoI4 name of Fascist Chile is derived from). Yes, Chile had its own Nazis, the group being founded in 1932 and aped many points of the German Nazi platform, but gradually moved towards a more indigenous form of fascism over its short lifespan; the party met its demise in 1938 after they tried to coup the government... and failed, hard. What was left of the Nacistas (the nickname given to them) went on to form a successor party, the Popular Socialist Vanguard, but it lived an even shorter lifespan than its predecessor, barely obtaining 2.5% of the vote in the 1941 legislative elections (having two deputies elected), before they sputtered out and dissolved the next year in 1942.


    That's everything for tonight. Sorry it was short, but I'm pretty much reaching for flag designs at this point.:confounded: Hopefully I'll have more next time!

    After the fall of England to the Nazis, and the invasion and occupation of Australia and New Zealand, the United States, along with the USSR, a fellow allied power, would both manage to liberate Australia in a form similar to that of Korea, splitting the country between the US (The East) and the USSR (The West).
    The effects of this deal would have unforeseen effects.

    The Democratic States of Australia. The DSA, also nicknamed "Blue Australia" became a democracy, independent of the fallen monarchy, forming a closer relation to the United States of America, becoming a key player throughout the Cold War, and the War on Terror.
    In 1999 Julie Bishop is sworn in as the first female president of Australia, and would go on to win the next two elections afterwards.

    The Socialist Allied States of Australia. The Allied States (Also nicknamed Red Australia) are as close to the Soviet Union as the DSA is close to the United States.
    Their loyalty is almost without question, and is considered one of the many reasons why the Cold War lasted into the 21st Century, and evolved into the devastating War on Terror.
    SE Australia 2..png
    In the early 2000's, the Allied States would see Jim Silas appointed as Head of the Allied States, and oversee a seemingly powerful regime change.
    Silas promised his people, as well as the rest of the world that this would be a change for the better, and that the old Allied States was gone.
    He even aloud foreign bands, including The Beatles to perform, and changing the countries flag.

    Genesee County

    [​IMG]


    • System of Government: Feudal Plutocracy
    • Head of State: Count, elected by the Chamber of Commerce from the Feudal Houses
    • Population: 828,000
    • Religion: Non-Denominational
    • Totemic Symbol: Buffalo

    Genesee County has risen to a place of respectable power from its humble origins. Positioned as it was between the major cities of Rochester and Buffalo, Genesee played the two off against each other and eventually overtook both in the wake of New York. Genesee established its control over what was once known as the Burned Over Country and - most vitally - it became the gateway to the Great Lakes. Though the nation as a whole may be small, at 80,000 people Buffalo stands proud as one of the largest cities in the nation. In Niagara Square one can hear the chattering tongues of North America in unison trading and haggling.

    The Count of Genesee has divorced himself from the politics of the Northeast in favor of the riches of the Lakes. Genesee is per capita the most mercantile state on the Lakes, and it shows in the government; though the Count is generally picked from noble and not mercantile families, the power to elect the Count rests firmly in the hands of the Chamber of Commerce and the merchant interests it represents.

    Buffalo is the first and last stop for goods flowing through the Great Lakes. Countless conquests have been attempted; the Quebecois, the New Yorkers, the Ontarians, and most of all the Michiganders. Small as it is, Genesee has been reliant not on brute force but on clever diplomacy to maintain its independence and prosperity. The burghers of Buffalo and Rochester are the shrewdest navigators of the labyrinthine Lake League. They constantly undermine their stronger neighbors; it was Genesee County that has been the most outspoken in favor of the autonomy of Northern Michigan, and the establishment of a friendly quasi-independent Chicago under the allied Daley's has helped to cement their influence. The nation has rotated between a friend-foe relationship with Canadians and the Alleghenians a the politics of the day demand. They are loved by few, but respected by all.

    Genesee is also home to the resistance against centralized Nondenominationalism on the Great Lakes. Like many of the Burghers on the shores of the Lakeland, the Geneseean merchants have seen much to like in Lutheranism. Genesee is the national stronghold of Anti-Masonicism, seeing the Masons as a manipulative, unchristian and even demonic entity that ought to be abolished. No Masonic lodges exist within the territory of Genesee and the Churches operate rather differently from the rest of the nation's. This has made them a perpetual headache for Baltimore from both a spiritual and economic perspective, but no solution readily presents itself for the time being.

    After National Vanguard Chile, I thought I should continue with the Fascist South America flags:

    [​IMG]

    First flag: Falangist Bolivia.

    [​IMG]

    Second Flag: Falangist Cuba.

    [​IMG]

    Third flag: Nuevo Gran Colombia (which is, of course, Falangist).

    On the other end of the spectrum, moving to the Caribbean:

    [​IMG]

    The United Communes of Hispaniola!


    And that's all for tonight: short, simple, succinct. Until next time!

    Very beautifully done. I like the original proposal for Nigeria. As you said, the red sun does give it a bit of flair.

    The Caribbean Union flag is interesting too for the effect of the waves on the reflection of the sun. Great design.

    Also for this flag i have not a definited background, i think i'll use it for Nemesis setting.
    However i think, because it uses no red color, that could be for some khanate of central Asia.

    This flag was adopted by the Federal Republic of Iraq as part of the 1998 Convention of Kalar during the second phase of the 1991-2002 Iraqi Civil War, a conflict which saw Soviet aligned Kurdish rebels finally win the independence of Kurdistan after a protracted struggle aided by an Iraqi military mutiny and, with Soviet military aid pouring in, participate in a larger war to free all of Iraq from Saddam Hussein's rule. Saddam's forces entrenched themselves and fought all sides for several years with surprising effectiveness. Saddam's promotion of more competent officers under the influence of Ra'ad al Hamdani and a huge influx of international aid during the US invasion of Kuwait and Kurdistan in 1991-93 (but prior to the arms embargo imposed after the annexation), as well as the completion and mass production of the Lion of Babylon T-72 clone allowed his regime to survive fighting a defensive war. In 1995, the Kurdish state unified with a league of rebel groups after the drafting of the 1998 Constitution, which created a new state dedicated to ethnic pluralism while Hamid Majid Mousa, provisional president of the Iraq People's Government during the first uprising who had been flown to Mosul after exile in the USSR and who had worked with Kurdish and Turkoman leaders to help organize the convention, was appointed president of the Federal Republic of Iraq. By 2000 the final defensive lines around Baghdad were breached in a concentrated FRI offensive, while Qusay Hussein led loyal units of the Republican Guard and Fedayeen Saddam to resist in the southwest and organize guerrilla resistance elsewhere before he was captured and executed in 2002.

    Black and red represent Iraq as a whole, while green and red represent the leading role of the Kurds in overthrowing the nationalist regime, while combined they represent unity and understanding between peoples. In the triangle is written Hadith 32: "Do not cause harm or return harm", the motto of the FRI.

    The Flag of the Britannic Union

    - The canton is an amalgam of the crosses of St George, St Andrew and St Patrick, representing the union of the three Britannic peoples: the English, Scots and Irish
    - The red field symbolizes the blood of the Martyrs spilt during the Revolution against autocrats and tyrants
    - The canton and field together reflect the historic Red Ensign of the Royal Navy, who stood by the People during their time of need
    - The crown represents the sovereignty of Britannia in Union, held above any citizen or constituent republic
    - The eleven stars stand for the eleven founding Republics of the Revolution, three of the Home Islands and eight of the New World, united by the blue ocean of our maritime Empire
    - The three red bars embody the three pillars of the Revolution of Equality, Liberty & Justice, standing on a field of white, symbolizing Peace in Union
    - The laurel wreath documents the final Victory of the People over the chains that bound them

    Flag of the Republic of Turkey.
    In 1918 the leading general Kemal Pasha overturned the ineffective CUP government and took the Sultan in custody.
    After defeating the communists in Caucasus and occupying Kurdish lands, he proclaimed the Republic.

    modified it a bit because I want to use it (at least the design of it) as the naval flag of a nation I'm making
