Request Maps/Flags/Coats of Arms/Heraldry here, II

Hey guys, could anyone isolate the griffin supporters in the Coat of Arms of the Second Mexican Empire? Thx
 
Does anybody have (or can anyone make) a large (and I mean very large, at least 2000 x 2000 pixels) blank map showing the areas of modern Afghanistan, northwestern India and Pakistan, and Central Asia (at least southern Central Asia, Kazakhstan is not that important).

Obviously it's ok if I don't get this map, but I thought I might as well explicitly say it as there's been a lot of demanding on this thread recently.

The VT-BAM project is a good source for very large maps. See post 1851 for a link to maps which cover the whole world, in 3600x3600 tiles. Using those, here's a 5400x5400 map of the area you asked for:

Apart from combining the tiles and cropping the west/south I haven't changed anything, so credit goes to the contributors to the VTBAM.
Edit: like I keep telling my children, read the entire question - you asked for a blank map... Here's the same map with all borders and shading removed - just water/coastlines left, plus some light-blue shading which I think represents ice on the Himalayas.

Can somebody recreate a flag i saw in a dream? It was an Islamic Egypt. The Black Stripe on the Tricolor is now a dark green, and the Eagle on the flag had been moved the the right and was wearing a pyramid as a hat(?). On the left, there was a beige square (that was too big to fit inside the middle stripe, spilling onto the other two) with a white islamic crescent without a star. The Eagle and Crescent Square were similar in proportions to each other to the Austro-Hungarian flag, though a bit closer to the edge of the flag.

Thanks. This is exactly what I was looking for.

I altered your description slightly to keep the eagle on a consistent background. Tell me if you want changes. I also colored the square to match the eagle's color.

EDIT: And then I was playing around and did this:

OH! I forgot the pyramid hat. LOL I just reread the initial request. I shall have to think on that.

EDIT: Thinking done.

Even better. I don’t remember the context of the flag in the dream, only that it was an Egypt flag and that it was Islamist. Is there any significance to the stripes splitting in the first one, or is that just a stylistic choice? Looks great either way.

In the first, I started with the current Egyptian flag and tried to stay as close to your vision as possible, although I did expand the white stripe to frame the eagle. In the second, I let the triangles take over. It seemed a better way to frame the symbols. I am glad you like them. I love making flags.
 
If America became a fascist/extreme-right monarchical dictatorship in the 2040s (which hopefully never happens), and it changed its flag, what would its flag look like? (I'm planning a TL and I'd like to include a cool flag. If you do make such a flag, make sure to tell me whether I can use it or not.) I'm thinking that the new flag still looks "American" and is still identifiable as such (e.g. the 13 stripes are kept), but it looks more imperialist/fascist. (More sharp angles?) I'd also like the flag to have a futuristic feel because it was made in the 2040s. Also, I don't want the flag to be too fascist (if you get what I mean), because the dictator is trying to disguise America as a state of freedom (because of course dictators will do that). So no swastikas/fasces/etc.

Something like this, maybe, but this is just a picture I found on the internet, and I definitely don't have permission to use it. (If you want to look at the flag without the waving, take the link at the bottom and copy-paste it into another tab.) (And yes, you can use that flag waver site to your heart's content. My brother found it on the Internet, not me, so thank him, except he doesn't have an AH.com account.)
 
@Gokbay
Here's your first two requests: 'British Malaysia' without Aceh and with Aceh.
Also the first one (shield only) on a Blue Ensign.
I'll post the second one on a Blue Ensign tomorrow (due to the 3-image/day limit).
