Thanks! Its really useful.
I see. what part of OTL USA is occupied by appalachia ?
One idea would be for the simplified national flag (minus arms) put in canton and a field inspired on the logo of the Appalachian Regional Commission OTL to serve as a visual echo
Would anyone want to help me by doing some minor recoloring to this map?
I just need Gibraltar, Sardinia, and Savoy to be colored with the red color already used on the map. And I need Prussia's grey replaced with Austria's blue replaced. If you are up for a challenge you could draw in Cologne and Liege and color it with Austria's blue.
here you go
Thank you so much, could you also recolor the rest of the grey territories?
Most of OTL West Virginia and eastern Kentucky.
I love that flag! Do you mind if you can put the arms of the flag (including the crown above it) in the bottom right-hand corner in the green area?
the design is kind of busy as it is. Also, would be odd to have the flag and arm separate if they are combined on the national flag not to mention the fact that it would be superfluous as a sign of posession.
Yeah, you may be right. That may look a bit too messy. Do you mind if you can send me the coat of arms as a separate file as well? Thank you so much for your help today Marc.

What's the basic history?
Almost, but can you give Cuba, Puerto Rico, both the US and British Virgin Islands to the US? Vancouver Island should be a US state of its own. And Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland (not Labrador) shouldn't be part of the US. I would prefer that the *southern* border of the US be like it is here, too:
Can someone please clean these up a little?

How about we sweeten the deal and expand the southern border a little more so that the Republic of the Rio Grande is annexed? So the US gets Las Californias, Texas, Nuevo Mexico, Sonora, Chihuahua, the Republic of the Rio Grande, Durango, Sinaloa, Zacatecas, Tabasco, and the Republic of Yucatan.
Zacatecas and Tabasco might be a bridge too far, but we could totally have assimilated the rest into the USA if we had wanted to.
Well, can you do the map as I requested? I'd really appreciate it.
Well I won't have a chance until Monday at the earliest- this is a busy period of time- but if no one has by then, I'll do it.
Basically, the Netherlands holds onto the cape colony and manages to maintain its position as a great power long enough to partake in the scramble for Africa. Prussia meanwhile fails to unite Germany, but does end up purchasing southern Mozambique from Portugal and manages to secure fairly large amounts of south central Africa in the Scramble. Sweden meanwhile establishes some trade ports in East Africa and northern Madagascar, eventually using these bases to both annex the whole of Madagascar and colonize portions of southern Tanganyika and the Zanzibar Archipelago.
After these colonies gained independence, they ended up forming an economic block among one another, allowing for the spread of their former colonizers languages among each others borders and even the development of some creole languages. Eventually it was decided that it would be more economically and militarily profitable to come together as one nation. It's A.S.B., but I made it more for making a gif.
Here's the map for reference.
