Sorry, a combination of workload and family issues seemed to drain all my inspiration. I tried a few concepts, but couldn't get any of them to work.

Flag Challenge 220: I Swear By Thee, To Save Lives

Your task, should you accept it, is to create an alternative medical flag.

It could be a

1) new medical symbol, from a different cultural background, other than the current Red Cross/ Red Crescent/Rod of Asclepius, featured on a flag,
or
2) the old symbols for a, new AH country.
or
3) flag for a new medical organization, (like an American NHS, or the Combat medic Corp of an AH country’s armed forces)

Or anything else, as long as it’s a medically related symbol is accepted, and it’s new.

Challenge opens: now
Challenge closes: 29th March

United Nations Pandemic Area Response Team Initiative
In the year 2027, the United Nations Pandemic Area Response Team Initiative is launched. Its mandate is to provide a quick and comprehensive influx of expertise and resources to fight newly emerging viral threats before they could become pandemics. Its tactics and resources are best suited to arresting the spread of disease, containing it, initiating quarantine measures, and providing expert back-up to medical institutions on the ground in affected areas while simultaneously coordinating with government agencies to support large scale logistics and legal interactions . Once a threat escapes to become a pandemic, its role shifts to a purely support function until it can be gradually withdrawn and replaced.

This flag indicates an operational outpost under its jurisdiction. A variant carries a UN-blue "HQ" in the top right third to indicate the area headquarters. Additional insignia can be added if needed.

My first thought was "A Tenctonese delegation to the United Nations? Cool!" ;-D
 
The Order of the Fourteen Auxiliaries

The Order was founded by the Emperor of All Romans, His Holiness Pope Clemens VI, in 1349 as a non-profit and sovereign medical order to go out and provide vital care to all peoples regardless of nationality or status during the Great Pesitlence. In the modern day the Order is working hard all over the globe to tackle the new plague - Covid-19. In 670 years we've been operational we have come a long way in dealing with outbreak of disease and these little demons stand no chance against us as long as you also do your part.

You can help the Order by:
1 - Observing quarantine guidance - stay home and avoid contact with people outside your household
2 - Cleanliness - wash your hands and surfaces in your home regularly
3 - Prayer - pray for us and for those affected by the virus

"Fourteen Holy Helpers, who served God in humility and confidence on earth and are now in the enjoyment of His beatific vision in Heaven; because thou persevered till death thou gained the crown of eternal life. Remember the dangers that surround us in this vale of tears, and intercede for us in all our needs and adversities. Amen."

Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Hopeful.

(Explanation of the flag: It's relatively simple design based off of the Red Cross, except with the Patriarchal Cross instead of the Greek cross. The Roman numerals 'XIV' are inscribed on the flag to invoke the "14 Holy Helpers" who became the fourteen saints called upon to provide protection during the black death.)
