Flag Thread V

Yeah, that's obviously much simpler, and my first draft was something very similar to the bottom one. I decided that I wanted the ... net(?) ... the gold bit representing Navarre to look like it was interwoven with the saltire. Also, the black line around the gold is actually intentional. I maybe should've (?) made it a little thicker to make that more obvious
 
It's a cool flag and 'imma steal it. What was the context in the dream?
Please don’t steal it. If you use it at least please give me credit

It was the flag of some nameless totalitarian state, they practiced this strange mix of Ingsoc and fascism with more than a little bit of Japanese fanaticism rolled in - from what I saw they ruled the US east of the Mississippi after some limited nuclear exchange and a WWIII that didn’t make any sense

It was weird man, really weird, it went on for a long time but I didn’t get to see how it ends

I was being flippant, I added it to my collection of "cool flags other people made". All credit goes to you. :)

Huh.
 
Ketchikan Borough


  • System of Government: Noble-Mercantile Republic
    [*]Head of State: Headmen, elected by the Town Council
    [*]Religion: Eco-Buddhism
    [*]Population: 75,000
    [*]Totemic Symbol: Salmon
Ketchikan is the first of the great cities of Laska. Indeed, sailing north from the Salish Sea, one only finds the chaos of the Broken Coast leading up to it. True, their are ports, but they are chaotic, constantly switching hands between clans and tribes, constant conflict between Buddhists, Orthodoxes, and the syncretic meshing of the two. To make matters worse, raids from Haidaland by the stoogies of the Admiral do vex the Cascadian sailor. Only when they have seen the Twenty Totem Poles and have entered the Tongass Narrows can the merchant breathe easy - at least, relatively.

Ketchikan was once a thoroughly Alaskan city, its identity forged in the Great Raids of the 23rd-24th centuries. It served as a gateway for the fleets sailing down to the Broken Coast to Cascadia, and the gateway for colonists who struck out for the south. Ketchikan was often disputed between the Governor and the Admiral in the early history of Alaska, though more often than not it was loyal to Joono. In these days of yore, it was a thoroughly feudal state ruled by a great war chief who called on his loyal warriors to do battle with the Athabaskan and the Buddhist. Many great heroes of Laskan lore hailed from the Salmon Capital of the World, from Orry Wrangel to Leland the Legless. But everything changed when the market opened up.

As the age of great raids and southerly colonization began to slow down, Cascadian merchants began carefully plodding their way up the Inner Passage to take hold of the riches of the far north. When the market arrived in Ketchikan, the culture of the city changed. Rather than being a race of sailors and warriors, the Ketchikanders became a race of sailors and merchants. The sermons at Church saw more and more influence from Buddhist thought, and great totem poles began to be carved with Cascadian figures. Tensions grew between the Ketchikander merchants and the Governor in Joono.

When Chief Dale "The Unready" died in 709, the City Council of Ketchikan proclamed its independence, finally destroying the fiction of the "Three Systems, One Nation" model of Alaska. Today, Ketchikan does battle with Baranoff and Joono in the Alzandar archipelago, and pushes for the syncretization and conversion of Alaska to Cascadian Buddhism.

United Duchies of Cornwall and Cornwall

The United Duchies of Cornwall and Cornwall, commonly known as the Two Cornwalls, came about following the death of Mark V of Insular Cornwall (Sx: Cornweallas) without surviving issue and so the territories passed to Alan IV of Continental Cornwall (Gl: Cornouaille).

The Two Cornwalls consisted of Insular Cornwall on South West Peninsula of Great Britain and Continental Cornwall on the Lesser Britain Peninsula of Gaul, both linguistically distinct from their neighbours - Saxon-speaking Wessex in Great Britain and Gallo-speaking Normandy in Gaul - but speaking two dialects of the same Cornish language.

Flag of the Socialist Republic of China. Declared in Beijing in 1963 by Mao Zedong as it became apparent that his control of the country would not be challenged. In his first public appearance in years, indeed the first time in nearly a decade he had even revealed his location, he stood before giant portraits of Lenin, Marx, Sun Yat-sen, and Chiang Kai-shek and proclaimed a new era for China. A new era of freedom, prosperity, and socialism. Of course, Mao had some funny ideas about how to achieve those...

First/Second United Front holds?
 
First/Second United Front holds?
Err, not precisely, although it could work there as well.

This flag emerged from my The Rising Sun Casts the Longest Shadows wikibox series. Long story short, Japan avoids Pearl Harbor and more of less wins the war in Asia. Chaing winds up shot fleeing Chongqing, but despite his failures is remembered fondly for his resistance. Mao ends up forming a Third United Front with the KMT remnants. The War for Independence is long and *very brutal* (the Imperial Army finds Nuclear Weapons are very useful things) but eventually the Japanese Empire starts collapsing under it's own weight. Mao takes up leadership, having the largest of the United Front's groups, but wraps himself in the banner of the RoC as much as possible.
