    I hope that was just an unfortunate coincidence

    I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that it was, but it's hard not to get suspicious.

    Pretty sure it was just a joke. I doubt there really were 6 million submissions

    Well, if it is a joke, then that's a joke in VERY poor taste.

    Me, I think it was a joke, an edgy one at that (though he could have gone for the "gorillion" part); I know some may argue otherwise but the thing is jokes are jokes, and jokes are subjective. Frankly though it could have been worse or more edgy but whatever I'm not here to see this turned into a thread were people get offended over some edgy joke (same with helicopter ride ones); not that you should find them funny or anything.

    Post-WW2 Germany seems to be obsessed with Nordic cross flags:

    Proposed CAR flag from 1976 following Bokassa's brief conversion to Islam, the idea of changing it was scrapped when he declared himself emperor.

    I've heard a lot of people say that the 1928 flag of South Africa, the one with three little flags on it, is ugly, I personally think it's an alright design, especially considering that these were two of the alternatives.

    A very US-y proposed ROC flag.

    My favourite proposed PRC flag. Looking kinda Soviet, but I can't quite pinpoint how.

    And a retro-futuristic flag for Hong Kong.

    All i'm thinking when i see that is Hawaii. Granted, it is better than our current flag to be fair.

    I still think this was the best proposal for Australia. Granted it might just be because I like thin stripes at or near the bottom of solidly colored flags. Wayne_Stokes_Proposal_for_Australia.svg.png

    Seems more like a fitting flag for South Africa, but that's just me

    Not enough green or gold if we're going with al alternate colour scheme from the tri colours.

    I'm extremely biased, but I think Texas has an excellent flag. It ... was not a sure thing.

    [​IMG]

    By a law passed shortly after the revolution, this was the first national standard of Texas. I don't think many existed in reality.

    [​IMG]

    This was the proposal from the new Republic of Texas's General Convention. After the original design was submitted, someone was like "What about a rainbow? I like rainbows!!" and someone else was like "Put another, smaller star!" and someone else was like "What if we forget what country we're in? Put the name on there!"

    But after that everyone learned their lesson about busy flags with confusing symbolism psych they did not.

    [​IMG]

    This was Stephen F. Austin's flag proposal, which someone apparently, rightfully, tried to burn. It's hard to tell, but this Hawaii style flag is red, white, and green, meaning to incorporate American, British, and Mexican symbolism.

    I know what you're thinking. Not complicated enough. Well my boy Steve has got you covered with this later revision.

    Yes, it is the disembodied head of some kind of anime George Washington now replacing the star, with no less than three legends. Above him, 'WASHINGTON' and 'Where liberty dwells there is my country,' below 'In his example there is safety'. They also wanted to make the background of the Union Jack yellow, for reasons. Steve, you're drunk, give me the keys.
