Flag Thread IV

Hello I'm back, this time with significantly fewer flags. These ones are for India, specifically the Dominion of India and the Commonwealth of India. The lore is incredibly long and would take way too much time to put here, so I'll just leave you with the symbolism: a red and green bicolor, the colors of the Indian Home Union (this timeline's closest equivalent of the INC) and symbolic of harmony between Hinduism and Islam. The flag is centerpieced by the Star of India, a symbol of royal rule in India going back to the Raj. In 1986 it's replaced with an Indian lotus, symbolizing the Indian people and their struggle for freedom from the caste system. And before you say that these look to much like Portugal's flag, Portugal never adopts those colors in this timeline.

Merry Christmas!

As part of a gift, I'm showing off redesigned and realistic flags for the other two factions of the Metal Slug games, namely the Government and Ptolemaic forces, respectively the one on top and the other on the bottom.

 
More than a year ago, I created this flag for a State of Sonora. The design got a lot of positive attention, but I was not happy with the final outcome, which had some choppy and un-clean edges. I've done more work on it now and am re-uploading it.

The flag of Sonora is a horizontal chevron tricolor: red, white, and green, forming a green peak at the bottom, representing the state's mountainous terrain. Within the white chevron are three stars, each with fifteen points (45 total) representing Sonora's position as the 45th state, and a stylized set of antlers, which are an important cultural icon of the Yaqui people indigenous to the state.

 
What's up Fellas, just dropping a few Basque Country variations, before you guys complain, i'm well aware of the basque versus Franco history and i know it did not ended up well, just keep in mind that i was looking for some nice asthetics.

The Flag of the Allies in an alternate WW2, when they formed the Joint European Defence Corps. The 12 swords represent the 12 original members: Great-Britain, France, Belgium, Netherland, Luxemburg, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovaquia, Poland and the four Dominions of Canada, Australia, New-Zealand and India (South-Africa refusing to fight outside of the African theater was left out of it).



And its simplified form used on tags and individual identifications.
 
Simple designs 101: Commonwealth of Virginia. The colours are inspired from that of the American Flag (ITTL the US collapses early on). The three stars in the middle represent the Kentucky Plains, the Appalachian Mountains and the Coastal Plains in said order.

These look exactly like the flags that would be designed for this purpose. Fix the pixelation on the shield and maybe slide the image down on the flag, and they would be great.

Looks good but makes me think of Tennessee.
