Flag Thread IV

Broke: One star for each of the fifty states
Joke: Ten five-pointed stars, each star representing five states
Woke: Five ten-pointed stars, each star representing ten states, with a ring of thirteen stars representing the original colonies

The central design, to me, looks great as a decorative design but since even in a static state it tends to play tricks with your eyes, it feels like when flapping in the wind it would be hard to parse. I think the main reason is that the stars' orientation are offset from one to the other and since they are pointy, they tend to create this sort of zig-zag after image.
 
Flag of Syndicalist Hungary I made. Inspired by the Hungarian rebel flag in 1956 and the Italian Socialist Republic from Kaiserriech. From the "Twilight of the Red Tsar" timeline, link here.

have you tried with a smaller red star within the white star ? it obviously may not matter within your timeline if things are different but from an OTL perspective, a white star might not really be perceived as socialist / communist.
 
Bespoke: Keep the stars the same, add stripes instead

Good analysis. The American flag is busy, but I think I somehow managed to make this flag even busier. Whereas the American flag takes up the whole field, this one takes all the elements and tries to put them on one focal point at the center of the flag, which makes the central design a lot to look at. But yeah, this was just an idea that came to me on the way home one day, and I couldn't help myself from giving it a shot. I think it's a cool idea, but it's hard to get around that problem.

Yeah, in the OG version I was making, I had a red star but felt it kind of resembled the red star of the Soviet Union, which is hated in Hungary. So it’s white still to represent unity under syndicalism but subtracted our the red to drift away from the old Soviet Union.
 

Made another flag, this time of the United Kingdom of Rwanda-Burundi (FR: Royaume-Uni du Ruanda-Burundi, KIN: Ubumwe bw'Ubwami bw'u Rwanda n'Uburundi, SWA: Ufalme wa Muungano wa Rwanda na Burundi)
note I have no idea on the Kinyarwanda translation since the conjugation and cases of it screw me up hard but I tried my best lol, enjoy the flag!

in french, Rwanda is still Rwanda, not Ruanda. Flag design looks pretty realistic if you ask me.
