Weekly Flag Challenge: Discussion & Entries

American Distributism Party
View attachment 685225

While the American Distributism party does have other goals as part of its platform it was founded with the expressed purpose of integrating the principals of the economic system of distributism into the United States of America.

Distributism was initially developed in the 19th century as an alternative to Pure Capitalism and Communism. In extremely short terms, distributism focus on local areas first and has an emphasis on family farms and businesses.

The flag's main design features come from a saying of one of distributism major early thinkers G. K. Chesterton, "Three acres and a cow." With the cow being self evidence and each of the three colored stripes representing an acre.

Very nice! Would also have accepted forty stripes and a mule 😂
 
The Republican-Democratic Party (not to be confused with the Democratic-Republican Party dissolved in 1834) is a centrist party created by so-called Republicans In Name Only (or RINO, pronounced to sound like "rhino") and Democrats In Name Only (or DINO). This party became a traditional kingmaker and junior partner in American politics during the Eighth alignment of the American Party System.

Triceratops, a rhino-like dinosaur, was chosen as the party's symbol. The party's official color, purple, is also a mix of Republican red and Democratic blue.

God's Own Party
The GOP is a splinter from the fracturing of the Republican Party in 2040s following revelations about its leadership's involvement in the Gilead Scandal which sought to reverse all civil progress made since the 20th Century.
As the main Republican Parties reformed in order to achieve electoral success their move away from religious conservatism caused many a departure of the religious right.
These established themselves as the God's Own Party based on reinterpreting an old acronym of the Republicans.
While achieving little success nationally the GOP survived in various southern counties and states, however the recent successes in human cloning and the uterine casket has caused a surge in their numbers from those worried about "inhuman experimentation" and coupled with the rise in Revelationism as the next century approaches amidst worsening Climate Change, pundits are predicting a kingmaker scenario...

The Flag is a modified All-Seeing Eye with the US colours and a star.

Corrected the image slightly as a star went off kilter somehow.
There's also a slightly subtle play in the imagery which was initially unintended but kept in.

I like the flag but the challenge was more geared toward future history political parties, not ones growing out of past divergences 🤔 still, I suppose I didn't make that an explicit requirement so it's grandfathered in 😅 Also since it does have a past divergence you can post it in my alternate party systems thread if you like!

The Pillarist Party of America (or simply; Pillarites)

The Pillarist Party of America was founded in 2038 as a splinter of the Progress Party of America, with it's founder, controversial New Age thinker & at the time Representative Andrew Rasgey boastfully proclaiming it's founding on the House Floor. Pillarism is commonly defined as a form of Modernist Liberalism, Technocracy, and Anarchism, however Rasgey has fiercely denied such associations, proclaiming Pillarism as a Eleventh Way Political Movement.

Pillarism believes in the 'Three Pillars of Societal Progress' as defined by Rasgey in his 2039 Book 'The Way Forward: Pillarism', those being the Pillar of Faith, the Pillar of Popular Freedom, and the Pillar of Economic Freedom. Pillarism, as defined by Rasgey in other works, is a means of focusing government to 'serve society as a whole by cutting a path through the dark age of modernity forward through the doors of progress into the bright future ahead'.
