Flag of the Sol Commonwealth, Commonwealth of the United States
Following the end of United States war against the Benevolence Empire in the year 2459 ,it was finally agreed governance reform was needed as distant Planetary Commonwealths felt overwhelmed by those more populated in the core of the United States particularly the Solar System, so the 46th Amendment was passed to establish another layer of governance in the United States, with the Sol Commonwealth being the first to be established as the 9 Planetary Commonwealths of the Solar System were merged into the Sol Government. As the United States appears unmatched, some speculate what the future of the US holds. The end of the Benevolence War had seen the election of the first non-human, Terrans and Subspecies included, elected as President of the United States. Some wonder if the United States should ever become extra-galactic if yet another tier of governance would need to be added, if the eventual need of a Milky Way Commonwealth among the many of Galactic Commonwealths would be warranted in the far future.
The design of the Flag of the Sol Commonwealth obviously takes influence from the original United States flag and the typical style of the Planetary Commonwealth flags. With the symbol of the Sun at the center of the flag, 13 stripes as a reference to the Original 13 states of the Union, and then the 9 Stars representing the 9 Planetary Commonwealths of Sol, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Luna, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
