Much more modern. Almost looks like the flag of a respectable country in the modern world. However, I think you should put the Seal of Muhammad (perhaps with a perfect circle) instead of the sword.
 
Ladies and gentlemen, my first flag on this site... a Romanov-Ruled New Kingdom of Granada (or as we know it OTL since 1863, Colombia) made crudely on MS Paint

also... a small challenge...

1. Habsburg Monarchist Colombia
2. Bonaparte Argentina or Chile
3. Wittlesbach Mexico
 
Here's a quickly and roughly put together flag I did out of boredom for the werewolf 'Lupan Empire of Rome' from my Halloween inspired map I'm still working on, as seen on the Map Thread. And yes, that is the witcher medallion. Honestly it was the most badass wolf head logo I could think of.

Flag for the Kingdom of the Rhineland. The Kingdom was formed as a rump of the Kingdom of Prussia, who acquired a considerable amount of land in west Germany following the Napoleonic War (as OTL). However, in this ATL, liberal revolutionaries succeeded in overthrowing the King of Prussia in his own lands, forcing the Kingdom to move.

1875 Map

This map shows the Kingdom of the Rhineland in 1875, alongside the Austrian Empire (which absorbed Bavaria as a title in the 1840s), the Republic of Germany, the Second French Empire, and the Kingdom of the Netherlands. In this ATL, the Second French Empire was established directly via revolution and Napoleonic sentiment rather than conversion of the Republic. Pro-German revolutionaries in France's easternmost lands, particularly Alsace-Lorraine, joined the Kingdom of the Rhineland. By the time the government of the Second French Empire under Napoleon III had recovered and restored order, it was too late - the territories had been occupied and militarized by the Rhineland.
 
And the latest challenge is up

That Seal looks rather like a moon. I think I now see where that moonworshipper propaganda came from with the predominance of the seal and crescents.

Also fits a Romanov Romania. Romanovia? :D

Intriguing flag though not sure about the scenario
 
Still very new to flag making, can I get some advice on general technique, hints as to how to make my flags better visually. Example of where I'm at below.

Three tips;

1. Use Inkscape
2. Use Inkscape
3. Use Inkscape

It is (in my opinion) the best vector illustrating software that's currently available, and coupled with the fact that it has a very minimal learning curve I can't emphasise how great of a tool it is in creating good looking maps and flags.

Never heard of it. Sounds good, thanks.

Well, if you want constructive criticism, flags usually need to have good contrast, so as to be easily recognizable at a distance. Though I find the bold geometric design appealing, this flag, with its shades of gray, all blends together.

That's not the arms of the Romanovs though ;) These are the arms of that dynasty:

Something along these lines, perhaps:

Good idea, hadn't thought of that. I've downloaded Inkscape and I'm about to start testing it out. I'll try and apply this advice, thanks.
