I want to like this but I can't unsee a rounded cube at the centre of the leavesUnlike the US and a few other countries, Canada's head of government (the Prime Minister) doesn't have a distinctive flag of its own. In a timeline where Canada was a republic or simply decided to have a flag for the PM, this could be it. The central emblem is the heraldic badge for a current or former PM and small vertical stripes are used so that the flag keeps some aspect of the federal flag's "Canadian Pale" design without the possibility of being confused with a variant of the federal flag.

For future reference, there is a thread for flag requests (now up to page 119): https://www.alternatehistory.com/fo...-flags-coats-of-arms-heraldry-here-ii.480328/Request: Could someone put the NATO flag in the canton of the US flag? If you’re more ambitious, feel free to switch the NATO star to 5-, 6-, or 7- points.

It's never interested me.Perhaps in the future, but that'll require some new overlays to simplify construction - specifically, Yuri's Emblem. I would gladly accept it if you provided one...
Here is my proposal for the flag of Galveston, Texas. It is simple enough to be remembered by a child but distinctive enough to be recognised at a distance.
The overall layout represents the geography of Galveston, a diagonal island. The two blue sections represent the ocean and shipping industry as Galveston was one of America's biggest ports. The two golden stripes represent the beaches that attract many visitors. One shore faces the mainland and the other faces the wider world, representing how the port acts as a gateway to America. The red represents the life and energy of Galveston's people. The star represents the pride of Galveston as it punches above its weight.
The flag also references the history of Galveston. Red and gold are borrowed from the naval flag of the Spanish Empire. The diagonal layout is borrowed from the first flag of Mexico. The red, white, blue and star are borrowed from the flags of Texas and America.
Here is a map of the island of Galveston to understand what I was going for with the layout.
