Weekly Flag Challenge: New Challenges & Previous Winners

FLAG CHALLENGE #259: Forget Columbus

The year is 1425 and the first ship of Zeng He's massive expedition has made landfall in the OTL's Puget Sound, USA. The settlements that follow establish the Chinese as the "Discoverers of the Americas". The Confucian teachings instilled in these early explorers lead them to value cooperation with the native tribes as opposed to conquest. This cooperation leads to the rapid modernization of America's natives. Among these modern ideas were forging, mining and construction techniques, weaponry, military tactics, farming practices, and medical advancements (viral inoculation being key). Because of this massive divergence in timelines, the late 15th century European explorers encountered exponentially different native cultures across the Americas than those of the OTL.

The task is to create a flag from this NEW New World. It can be a nation, a tribe, a city-state, a kingdom, or... whatever from 1500-Present. Allow your imagination to run wild with the possibilities of two continents where none of the OTL boundaries or governments ever existed.

Submissions Open: Now
Submissions Close: Monday, November 29th, 15:00 GMT

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.
