    What are your thoughts on putting heraldry on flags? Yay or nay?

    The tails represent the 4 historical Irish provinces, Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Ulster. But since the UK controls most of the Northern province, Ulster, it is is an empty space in the flag.

    Maybe someone could do a quick edit that adds another tail for a united Ireland?

    Now, I propose a flag of a personal union between the kingdom of France and the kingdom of Britain:

    I feel like you should remove the fancy yellow things from the other parts of the flag. It makes it over complicated without really adding anything to it.

    IIRC, the fleur-de-lys is a core component of the French Monarchist banner. Chucking them without chucking the Union Jack is unlikely to fly.

    Oh I'm not talking about the fleur-de-lys on the herald but on the other parts of the flag.

    For me, there had to be components representing France so that's why I put the fleurs de lys, otherwise with only union jack, there would be only Britain represented ...

    How about removing the Irish component of the flag thus making the flag consist of four blue squares. Each of those squares then look like this the French royalist flag with 3 fleur-de-lys.

    A bit of explanation.
    From my world "La Triplice".
    In the '30s Usa become a Syndacalist state.
    Ruled by the Union Democratic party, Usa is still divided in 50 states, but over the states, now there are the Districts.
    A district must comprise at least two states, but over the years, the number of districts variate from a minimum of 10 to q maximum of 21.

    The flag posted here has 14 starts for the districts and a wheel for the working class.

    Where would ASB or fictional universe (ie Star Wars) flags go?

    Here is fine. Unlike with maps there's not a large demand for a separate ASB or fictional thread.
