  1. FriendlyGhost Haunting history for 45+ yrs

    Sorry, I was working on something but have been laid up in bed for the last day (nothing serious, just a bug) so it's stalled.

    Yeah, bit stumped this time round. But worth revisiting later. I always have a look at past challenges if I'm stuck for ideas anyway.

    If you still can't, pick a number between 1 and 100 and we'll redo that challenge.

    Any recognized nation from any period of time. Doesn't have to present time.

    Romania before all
    An ultra-nationalist leader takes power in Romania. His party has used the auroch head from the ancient state of Moldavia as a symbol so, after his accession and subsequent 'democratic' election as leader for life, the Romanian flag is amended to add this symbol.

    (Not great, I know, but RL's a bit busy right now.)

    ps to any Romanians - I do not mean to imply that this might happen in real life - the auroch symbol just looked good.

    My iffy entry:

    The European Union - Confederation and Association

    The exit of the United Kingdom from the then European Union had a cascade effect on inter-European politics. 75 years later there are now 2 parts to the European Integration Project - the core Confederate Members of the European Union and the peripheral Associate Members of the European Union.
    The core Confederation, commonly called the European Union following the late US President Beavis's jokes about "the Confederacy", exists as a federal political union with a common currency, parliament, security force, etc.
    The Associate Members are grouped in a series of Associations each having varying levels of integrated services with the EU core. These are the Atlantic Association, Mediterranean Association, Northern (or Baltic-Nordic) Association, and the Eastern Association.

    The general EU flag remains but a new one created for each Association and the Confederation.
    The EU Confederal Flag was inspired by the historical imperial flags of Europe, specifically France and the Holy Roman Empire, due to its resemblance to a larger Frankish Empire.
    It is composed of a two headed eagle representative of the past and the future, each talon clutches a lightning bolt to symbolise the energy and zeal of the Project and the willingness to defend it. Upon the chest is a shield bearing the EU circle of stars. All is in EU colours of gold and blue.

    Very nice - you obviously put in a bit more effort than I did for mine!
    Wouldn't that be 'or and azure' or 'gold and blue' ? [/pedantry - sorry;)]

    Tbh I worked backwards from the basic design. Notice how I gloss over the 75 years...

    Dammit. Live by the pedantry, die by the pedantry!

    Small typo with "Joly Roman Empire" there btw, though thats very pedantic.

    Flag does look very cool though in terms of the important bit.

    Yes, uh, does it have to be a banner, or a flag, rather?

    Well, it's a flag challenge... so yes?
    Or did you mean something else?

    You have it listed as a banner.

    Banners can be in landscape or portrait. Flags are rarely, if ever, in the latter.
