    As you may have already found out, the winner #4 is Raymann!

    'Flag is from a North American Federation that united over a much worse Cold War. NORAD lead to even greater military integration with economic then political union later.'

    The next challenge is a little different (I hope this works):

    A flag for a Scandinavian/Baltic nation of your choice and in the century of your choice - Pre 1900- using one of the letters of the (elder futhark) runic alphabet as the flag's primary charge/symbol.

    Entries should be posted in the Discussion & Entries thread before 11:45 pm EST on Wednesday, November 25, 2009.

    Have fun!

    THIS WEEK'S WINNER IS .............................
    Rubberduck3y6 - our 1st repeat winner - Congratulations!

    The flag of Iceland. The central circular design is based on the Ansuz rune, the 'God rune' which ITL has evolved to represent the Christian God in Scandinavia, taking the place of the cross IOTL. The blue and white represent the sea and the land respectively. The five stripes are simply echoing the central design.

    Based upon this timeline . . .

    1763: The southern portion of the Spanish Viceroyalty of New Spain is acquired by Great Britain and named British Tropical America.

    1822-26: Amid the violent revolutionary firestorm sweeping through Spain’s colonial empire in South and North America, the 7 provinces of British Tropical America make a relatively peaceful transition from colony to autonomous nation, the Dominion of Tropicana.

    1847: American soldier of fortune Jim Polk is hanged for his role is the Belizean Rebellion.

    1899: Isthmian America becomes a world crossroads when the Darien Canal, in Tropicana’s Panama Province, is officially opened, connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

    1960: Tropicana achieves full sovereignty. Like several other former British colonies, such as Canada, the reigning British monarch is also King or Queen of Tropicana. In January 1960, following a nation-wide contest, a new flag was chosen for Tropicana.

    Your challenge is to design a flag for Tropicana (No orange juice jokes or flags please)

    Enteries should be posted in the Discussion & Entries thread (https://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=136905&page=6) before 7:00pm EST on Saturday, January 23, 2010.

    Good luck.
