I'll create the poll later today unless there's any last/late entries!
Nifty, I've already got an ideaFlag Challenge #255: Taured
There are several versions of the urban legend, but the crux of the story is a mysterious traveler who is obviously out of place. He is questioned by the authorities, and his passport is examined. He seems to have traveled extensively in Europe, but one detail catches the eye of the authorities. His nation of origin is listed as Taured. He is given a map to demonstrate where his country is, and he is confused by some of the nations on the map, claiming that they are made up, and his country is missing. He is held under arrest while the authorities attempt to confirm some aspect of his story, but he disappears from a guarded hotel room on an upper floor overnight.
Your challenge is to create the flag for Taured. Since there are two main versions of the story, you will have two options.
Option 1 - Taured is a very small nation in Western Europe, somewhere on the border of France and Spain.
Option 2 - Taured is an African nation, perhaps taking territory from the south of Egypt and parts of Ethiopia.

Please remember to review the RULES, especially concerning flag size. For an image in a single-flag entry, the shortest side must be 600 pixels or less, and the longest side must be 1200 pixels or less.
Ooh, that's something I hadn't thought of.Most Plausible History of Taured:
When the Moors invaded Spain, they brought with them a bunch of Tuaregs. After a failed expedition into France, the retreating Moorish army left behind some wounded and sick Tuaregs in the mountains, who dugged in to defend themselves, somewhere between France and Spain.
Over the years, the Tuaregs lost contact with the Moors, and were gradually engulfed by Christian kingdoms, until they also converted to Christianity. But their seperate identity survived.
TBC… I might or might not have the time to make a flag.
