Vexillology/heraldryCan't find the link to the old thread edition
>>436245Looks very nice, had this one saved for a while now
>>436245This illinois flag design is pretty cool
>>436697Bro why is it looking to the right
>>437029Maybe russia goes down the sovereign republics route? Makes it way more balanced this way, no "from russia to america" "america above russia" symbolism.would be cool alt history, it's just a different name, was originally gonna just have a bigger russian federation but this could seal the deal, tho this does mean the USSR doesn't fall and that might be too cliche for my taste.Also the original symbolism might work, fall of the USSR, russia is weaker and has to piggyback off of america, so america above russia. Better but equal
I've been instered in old soviet/communist insignias lately, pretty cool stuff (although I'm not a commie myself)>>437029>>437033These are still too american, I don't think the USSR/Russia would accept something like this, either they would use their own designs on their parts or demand something with more commie aesthetics, specially the CCCP one.
>>437129The mission is supposed to have mainly US contribution, like the iss.A sign of good will after the fall of the USSR.Also most patches look the same, soviet or american. Space patches all look samey after the USSR fell.I honestly prefer the top one more, it's dynamic and sends a message. Russia is moving closer to the US, but as an equal.The laurels i'll probably change but don't really care enough rn. It's gonna be low res as fuck and in the background anyway.
>>437132There is also this configuration but idk
>>437132>It's gonna be low res as fuck and in the background anyway.Interesting, what are you making?
best flag ever made
>>437133found this on chance
>>437189Book about astronauts but i really just like making the things
Please rank the following flags from best to worst
>>438030Basic as hell.Too little contrastToo bright
Why did Mexico drop the superior design?
>>437199Hey I've been in those caves
>>438060Because flags are symbols, and that flag is asociated with monarchy.Mexico is a republic
the flag of the "Neo-Germanic Party"a hitlerist group in sweden
>>438459a pic with its founder henrik jonasson
>>438460>neo germanic hitlerist>looks like that
>>438460he looks like himmler
>>438470Maybe with the arms?
>>436246Too much going on in the seal.>>436852Reminds me of the D.C. flag, so not far off.
>>439098>coat of arms has too much going onMhm
I really like arms and emblems with physical things in them that aren't just in the sheild because that makes it exist in this theoretical void space where all of those things are just frozen in time with floaty text around it
>>439498This is one of the worst designs, and even turkish historians dislike it. It is obvious that they hired somebody with no experience or knowledge on Ottoman tradition and history.Sarik looks like they slapped Algerian Fes and Indian Pagri together.Shield looks more like Auxiliary Parma than Round Ottoman Cavalry shield.Cannon is unsure whether it is Humbara or BombardScales on "Quran" and "Kanunname" makes absolutely no logical sense.Arabic writing impossible to be understood by Ottomans at it uses Arabic phonetic spelling. (I know Abdulhamids failed islamic policies as he tried to became only true "Khalifa" of Islamic word, which is like declaring yourself Roman emperor in 3rd century) Not to mention "Mahmūd Ḫān bin Abdulhamīd muẓaffar dāʾimā", literally meaning "Son of Mahmud Khan Abdulhamid is forever victorious" is cursed and aged like milk. (even in that time)Why the fuck is there a cornucopia covering Naval jack? No, it is not flag of Rumeli Provinces, IDGAF what Wiki says. (There is a reason why designer put an anchor underneath it)Not to mention how everything is slapped together and it looks visually appalling.I could continue for hours writing down every single mistake, historical inaccuracies and unlogical design decisions.
>>439989Looks like one of those reddit logo-flags
>>439989Needs more kitch plus socialist symbolism with a crown
i saw this fan made kekistan flag and i like the spiral motif on the bottom. does this appear in any other well known flags?
>>440067Anything hellenicShould have gone for the swastika style
>>440121Non heraldicMy man invest in heraldic principles, you have no clue how much that can make a place feel more real.You don't even need to copy-paste symbolism, just figure out how it works through the bashing rocks together method. And through real examples.Find a real country that is like your fake one, and make the symbolism match. That way people have asociations with your world and you need to explain less
Hey guys, traveller here. I'm here because I didn't want to touch reddit.I am redesigning flags of former colony nations. This started as a way to get rid of the UK flag in the canton.Then I thought I'd standardise the style of the Canadian flag.>national colours>wide pale>simple national identifier in the centreThoughts, critisims on these designs?I know some are more "workable" than others
>>440168The only designs I am truly happy with.I am amazed I haven't seen it before with my own eyes.I prefer the yellow borders, but people tell me to use darker for standalone banners
>>440168These are an eye-sore, I am sorry.and #1 looks like New Zealand Nazi party
>>440168Now India, is much better
>>440173>>440170Imperialist mindset trying to "improve" flags.The union jack belongs on the australian flag. Flags are not just graphic design, they mean something, if a flag is used, the people use it and it's asociated with a place, why change it? Your flags look kinda soulless
>>440170lots of people seem to struggle redesigning the New Zealand flag meaningfully.I made a design a while ago which isn't perfect but I think is a step in the right direction, picrelif anyone is interested ill post symbolism
>>440185>imperialist mindset>actively trying to remove an imperialist symbol and encourage individual cultureU wot m8?>if a flag is used, the people use it and it's asociated with a place, why change it?Bruh, are you saying we should never change flags ever?>>440197I really like this one. The white border improves the red/black a lot.What are the 4 stars for? They look a little off to be Southern Cross.Pic is Pakistan, easiest one of these ever.
>>440198the four stars are the southern cross actually, (ik they look wacky)i stole the stars from micronesia (note - micronesia's stars do not symbolise the southern cross)
>>440198>Bruh, are you saying we should never change flags ever?Unless there is significant cultural or political shift, no.
>>438467>>438470>>438501>socialist iran>after a harsh islam regime the commies take over and introduce a more oppressive dictatorship. >mudslimes know no restLooking at that flag I almost feel bad for the poor bastards.
>>440224Glory to the Socialist Republic of Iran
>>440224i get that your trying to be funny but you sound like a loser faggot
>>440199>>440197Thoughts on Fiji?I wanted to find a symbol that was unique to them, and no other Melanesian state.But the usual shells or turtles were unsuccessful and so I stole this boat from their coat of arms.
>>440237Not badI wouldn't see any canadia style standardized flags being accepted, as its nice to have more variation, but i do enjoy the concept a lot and it works a lot more with some countries than others.>>440243Enjoying vexillology and making redesigns is not an imperialist mindset. It's having an interest in something.
>>440250Yeah true, many nations are more proud of their unique designs than others. Though I stand by Australia's one being gorgeous and would be a perfect candidate for the new flag, were they to need one.Jamaica..... teehee
>>440250It's an imperialist mindset, flags are sacred symbols and you are pissing on them.
>>440261i think youre just retardedget out of vexillology thread if you think that
>>440266Shut up westerner
> > 440273You gonna post flags or just talk shit?
Seal for the Volksrat of the Worker's Republic
bump.post more arms
How do you make a closed eagle's beak?
>>440231socialists will always be losers and you will never be a woman
>>443499you are also a loser
>>443329the bottom should just be a straight line, slightly curved up. look at pics of eagle beaks idk what to tell you man
>>443873this would be sick if the lines werent all wacky
>>443984Cope i will never stop doing lines like that.
>>440169john deer logo
>>443829>>443873Scroll should flow over the front of the bottom so that the Y is centered
>>444139>scroll over shieldno.
Come here and build your home.
>>444204Then unfuck it some other way. The lack of symmetry is gay.
>>444217symmetry is gay
gay is gay
>>444204lol its just badtake some advice and try to grow
>>444237yeah i know, but banner over sheild isn't exactly traditional so i'll figure something else out.
>>440258I am a simple dude, I see weed, I lmao
>>444490>>444489>>444488Now that's heraldry
this looks like dogshit retard
>>444047i think it looks great on the astronaut i just think the birds are kinda weird
>>440170keep the first one and just make the first verical band black instead of red
>>445005Hey that looks pretty go- hold on a minute gooby....
