Did you consider Ars Goetia sigils?

Could maybe be inspiration if nothing else.
I had thought about it, but I feel like those would be more like Islamic tughras -- calligraphic signatures, written in the languages of Hell and used more often by devils in the Muslim world. Europe had a stronger tradition of heraldry, though, and I wonder if that's something Hell's aristocracy would want to participate in, if they're trying to harvest Christian souls. idk, what do you think?
 
hey, again, friends, I'd like to request a flag for a union of Bulgaria and Romania from around 1878-1880. context is that San Stefano worked out, and Prince Carol of Romania also becomes the prince of Bulgaria. I know this isn't super plausible, but I haven't found a suitable flag online that speaks to me if that makes sense.
 
Also, ig Greek and Turkic name would help?
"Seres" was the general word for China. I guess it could be particularised to just the Sino-Greek Kingdom, much as the Indo-Greek Kingdom was just called "India."

Ptolemy seems to have used the word "Imaus" to refer to the Pamir Mountains. Beyond Imaus was "Seres"/"Serica" (Xinjiang), which was one of the nations of the "Sinae" (China/Chinese sphere of influence)
I am envisioning the two states as being founded by eastward-migrating Yuezhi, not Greeks, so Greek names wouldn't work.

Since the Bulgarian flag adopted in 1878 was a russian tricolor in wich blue was replaced by green and for some time Romania had used an horizontal tricolor too, I think you could keep the colors of the romanian flag, but rearranged so as to resemble the russian flag as well. (Admittedly it looks like the colombian flag)

Personally I'd say that realistically a Bulgaro-Romanian Personal union (or even a Real Union) would either have no official flag (à la Austria-Hungary, with the flag of the senior partner in the union being unofficially used) or use both flags (but maybe adding the other state's flag in a canton, similarly to how they handled it in Sweden-Norway). A weird mash-up of flags isn't entirely out of the window either (The Union mark of Norway and Sweden somehow was a real thing...) .

i also just realized that even in an alternate timeline romania is still in dispute over their flag looking like another country's lmao

The popularized Austria-Hungarian flag with half Austria half Hungary and Coat of Arms was a merchant navy ensign was it not?
 
Could someone make up a flag for an ancient Numidian kingdom somehow surviving into the modern ages? I'd prefer it didn't look like modern African flags or modern Berber flags. Something unique yet fitting.

okay so tweaking it it turns out colombia and romania have the same yellow and red colors on their flag lmao, @CarloGodoni do you think you could cut in half like the austria-hungary one?

Hmm looking at the flag history what about a red blue green tricolour gold bands over the divisions (sort of a 7 stripe: red yellow blue yellow green but the yellows thinner)?

sure i'd like to see how you take a crack at it!
I'm not quite sure how 7 was supposed to come into it (although "8-stripe" seems like a good description of a natural set of proportions), but here's what you get if the flag is 1/7 yellow and the other three bands are equal:
