>>428245>still can't spell vexillologyAlso, what happened to calling it /vxg/?
>>428245Just boring with no soul, similar to something id see in a sci fi game on the PS2 >>428246again, no soul, seal is alright though I guess
>>428245Traditional styled flag of the European Union, renamed to the European Federation
>>429147>coat of arms on the flag>hurr this is truly bad flag design!NAVAflags will never know such beauty.
>>429197Coat of arms BELONG on flags
>>429148>representing a union of 27 countries with a symbol related to two of them at best, tincture related to one and an inherited history unconnected to 12 of them
>>429243Rome is Europe and Europe is Rome you sad twat, every single fucking civilised country in Europe owes it's gratitude to the ancient empire. It's not my fault seeing Roman symbolism triggers something inside your kike DNA that makes you seethe and get genetic PTSD flashbacks from when Hadrian and his legions skullfucked your ancient grandmas neanderthal skull
>>429246it's a monarchist symbol though, larp all you want but rome is an imperial entity. the republic was hardly a quarter of its lifeThe idea of rome has kept europe back.
>>429246kek. are you even European?>using symbol - be it laurel or olive - that is GREEK in origin and later adopted by the romanstriskelion would be a better pan-European symbol.
United - People's Republic of and Republic of - China (plum blossom).
>>429147>>429197>>429206Nothing against CoAs on flags but>clearly just doing a 0 effort copy-paste from wikimedia, taking a complex and shaded coa, slapping it on a flag AND proceeding to use none of the 20 reds and blues from the CoA for your stripescancer>>429312Actually it represents a Kanaga mask, the symbol of the god-creator Amma in Awa societies.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanaga_mask
I'm continuing my long-running worldbuilding project, currently making flags for a bunch of corrupt and decaying duchies and baronies.
>>429485Huh, interesting! The more you know.
Simple flag for Prussian region
>>429486here's a table.>>429499wouldn't the inverse of that be more recognizable?
>>429518how do you make these designs and the coat of arms? looks very impressive :D
>>428245i made this for me and my buds
>>429764Thanks! I mostly make everything in Inkscape using various assets I've pilfered from mainly wikimedia. I use GIMP for "final assembly" when making these tables and for cleaning up raster images i wanna vectorise.>>429565very conceptual.>>429772is that some sort of sentai dragon?
which one, lads?
>>429518>>429816Sounds really cool man>>428245>old thread reached file limitYeah what's up with that? Why not set the bump and file limit to be the same? Especially on a graphic design board it seems like a dumb decisionIts a thread that dies before it's actually full, and then has the ability to just zombie on for a month or two with just people replying to content posts. Old thread is still taking up space on the board
>>429499this is specifically for the Old Prussian ethnicity
>>429816its a dragon themed playground/landmark in our town, used it because its a reminder of our town lol
>>429146Fuck you mean no soul, cunt.Show a flag with soul
>>429772Wait a second... I know that particular dragon shape!Are you from Toa Payoh by any chance?
>>430089why yes, i am!also, if you overlay singapore over the map, where the two red rectangles meet is actually the general location of the bishan-toa payoh planning area :D
>>430115That's pretty neat, fellow Singabro! I like your attention to detail.
Rate my Kansas redesign bros
Yet another europe-rome flag
>>430183tricolour flags are so fucking gay, it's basically the vexillogical equivalent to the globohomo art style and you people continue to propagate it because you suck Israeli cock A style of flag with jewish/masonic origin that symbolises "liberty & revolution"...no wonder it lacks any form of creativity or symbolism, jews have no soul fun fact- the first example of the tricolour was the "Prinsenvlag" used by the Netherlands, where William of Orange ruled, who later became William III of Britain solely because he was funded by a jew called Francisco Lopes Suasso ("""Abraham Israel Suasso""")
>>430088faggot, not my fault you have no soul
>>430233i agree that people make tricolor flags way too much but holy fucking meds
>>430285It's not just that they are too common, it's that they also lack any form of creativity, national symbolism & fail to invoke any sense of national pride. People who enjoy tri-colour flags have no souls & are very unintelligent. >but holy fucking medsGo back to plebbit
>>430233When was the last time you exchanged small talk with a stranger? Seriously, meds.
>>430317>>430325did you just respond to your own comment calling yourself an ass?
Original NATO flag was epic
>>430441Why is it slightly squeezed
>>430450>my brain is too small too handle detailed & complex works of art
>>430454Flags aren't meant to be read up-close. They're 20 feet in the air, blowing through the wind. I do think NAVAization has been a negative for flag design, having tiny plaintext on a flag is just obviously bad.
>>430419>>430424These are the same flag.[spoiler]Not literally, of course.[/spoiler]
>>430450Retard>>430477You're so fucking wrong on so many levels i can't even begin to explain it to you.Go back to NAVA, shill
>>430424>>430441Cringe.>>430454You can have a non-abstract flag without a complicated heraldic-style shield. Consider the flag as a green field with two (significantly) larger swords pointing towards each other at the centre, over a wheat sheaf. Now it's far more recognisable as >>430477 rightly points out is beneficial, yet is still unmistakably related to the shield (which can be used on e.g. badges), all while still being unique (i.e. not a generic tricolour).The 'no details' guideline by NAVA, to me, always meant 'no excessive, unimportant details', not 'if you can't draw it blindfolded then it's bad'. If it becomes unnoticeable when you blur the flag, it's probably an unimportant detail.
>>430508You're so wrong on so many levels
>>430521Then explain why he is instead of just being a contrarian cunt.
Used random clipart and didn't really think about placement or proportions much at all, but I think you can see what I mean.
>>430559Just my opinion, but I think the swords should be crossed.
>>430561Yeah, that'd be my instinct too. Only didn't to keep it as 'accurate' as possible to >>430419 (though I guess they may be daggers instead of swords?). I did try with just the tips touching as in the source, but that looked even worse.If all that mattered were swords and wheat, I'd have them crossed in the centre of the blade and flanked by two wheats in a U (as laurel wreaths often appear on flags).
>>430559Generic and soulless
>>430526Flags serve to tell a story, to define what something is.By being a purist "no text on flags" or "no coat of arms" cunt you are actively making flags worse.Text belongs on an arms, arms belong on flags. It's that simple.You don't need to see text from far away, infact flags are better if they have more details, things to make them special.>>430419This flag genuinely screams NATO, the shield in the middle and all>>430559I have no clue why you removed the sheild, you cunts would rather everything was sanitized instead of meaningful.It's like that US town flag thing all over again, except you managed to make a more soulless design
>>430566>actually, literally, genuinely defending seals on a bedsheetImmediately, and I do emphasize this, immediately fuck off, and preferably kill yourself.
>>430566Like it or not, the entire purpose of a flag is to be recognised from a distance. Even during medieval Europe, there was a clear distinction between heraldic items (e.g. shields, badges, seals) and 'vexillological' items (e.g. flags, uniforms). The rules for traditional European heraldry are designed such that it's nearly impossible to have two identical designs, and each design is pretty clearly distinguished. However, flags only became relevant during warfare, where you simply wanted to signal 'my side'. It is for this reason that you saw monochromatic banners so often: it's ludicrously easy to see. Modern flags, although their use has changed, still share much the same purpose.>Flags serve to tell a story, to define what something is.It is this very principle from which everything wrong emerges. Well, not wrong per se, but misplaced. Symbols serve to tell a story and define something, whether they show up as armorial bearings like European heraldry or printed onto products like modern corporate logos. I fully agree that symbols should be unique and interesting in design (unlike many corporate logos these days). Flags, however, are one step removed: they're symbolic OF that symbol and, as such, are also one step simplified, represented, or abstracted from the source.NAVA's reasoning about details on flags is 100% valid, even if you don't like the more extreme conclusions drawn from it. Again, you need not restrict yourself to abstract tricolours. Antigua's flag, for instance, is very recognisable AND very clearly representative of a more detailed symbol. Same goes for the Union Jack. But they're both, by far, more clean, simple, and 'generic' than what you seem to be recommending.You seem to be stuck in the idea that it's an either-or deal, where a simple flag means that every related symbol must also be simple. This is false. Consider the UK again: simple flag, complex heraldic symbols for every administrative unit (counties) and government body.
This flag is beautiful
>>430642You're a bluepilled fag
>>430659Yes, dark blue with 12 stars pilled
>All these fancy overdetailed flagsHow are you supposed to be able to paint them on your bodies during sporting events or how are your children meant to be able to draw them on their stick figure war doodles?
Anyone got that black/red Canadian flag with checkered patterns on the side? I've seen it in this board a long time ago but never saw it again
>>430088Possibly the first flag in the world
>>430942Maybe it's in the archives somewhere, but I don't know which archive site /gd/ is on.
>>430642it's honestly really good
>>430642>Against the blue sky of the Western world, the stars symbolise the peoples of Europe in a form of a circle, a sign of union. Their number is invariably twelve, the figure twelve being the symbol of perfection and entirety.>[...] though the official symbolic description adopted by the EU omits the reference to the "Western world"undeniably cuckedanyway, have this beautiful tablecloth
>>431251and what is "cucked" about that?
>>431253oh I like the flag but I was referring to this>[...] though the official symbolic description adopted by the EU omits the reference to the "Western world"the omission of 'the western world' was probably done for inclusionary reasons but to me that just exemplifies the steadfast decline in national pride and therefore the erosion of a sense of national identity, the latter of which is kinda conditional for a 'union'moreover the flag is that of the European Union wherein the countries' consensus is that most of dominant history concerns 'the western world': take that away and you take away intended meaning of the flagthen that could easily be followed up by adding a muslim crescent moon or something
>>431260it still refers to the "peoples of Europe" though, that's pretty unambiguous
>>431324I would eat at this restaurant

was active a thread or two ago, finally finished this set of flags, happy with most of them :)Full res here rather than burning 16 image bumps uploading them separately. Descriptions of some countries to for those who carehttps://www.deviantart.com/ashleyblackwater/art/2088-Flags-Yerosha-01-919784583https://www.deviantart.com/ashleyblackwater/art/2088-Flags-Yerosha-02-919784585>>430233Kinda agree.Tricolours made more sense in the past, and the simplicity of them still follows good design, but there's so many countries that its overused. Tricolour combined with symbols are much better. Germany's state flag looks better than its regular one, same goes for italy's old ww2 flag, and a number of other countriesThe rest of what you typed is >meds tho>>430419Current nato flag seams better by a country mile ng.lthis one seams like the natural evolution of ithttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Military_Staff
