Thank you.


I gave your flag a little bit of a grunge effect but the waving textures I have don't really work well with your flag I'm afraid. Also, because I could only get the image from your nation page, the quality is a little bit lacking. But I hope this is OK :)

Official Communique from the Flag Crafters' Guild:

ATTN, Ye Olde Flag Shoppe;

The system of flag making here in Gameplay is broken. Too many factions vying for too many incoming flag commissions means long wait times and discourages creativity as there is a manufactured "rush" to get a flag done before someone else makes it.

We need a solution.

I suggest that all flag makers unite under the banner of the Guild to serve a common purpose, and to help improve both the quality of flags and the rate at which they are produced.


Thank you for your time and effort, and we look forward to hearing your response.

Hello!
This request could be quite challenging, could you make a flag that includes features of the following countries: England, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, The Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland, be as creative as you like!
Never, before this,
were more men in this island slain
by the sword's edge--as books and aged sages
confirm--since Angles and Saxons sailed here
from the east, sought the Britons over the wide seas,
since those warsmiths hammered the Welsh,
and earls, eager for glory, overran the land.-Battle of Brunanburh 937 AD

Could I have my current flag placed where the England flags are. The spaces for the other flags should be filled with a Scotland type flag with a purple background and gold cross.

Also remove the lion in the middle.

I'm looking for a flag.

Postby Lightland » Tue Mar 06, 2012 10:58 am

]Hi all. Forgive me if I'm not doing this right. I've only just started playing this game a few weeks ago. My country is http://www.nationstates.net/nation=lightland.

At the moment, I am squatting with the flag of poor old Luxembourg - though Lightland is very different from them. So I thought I would like to ask if someone would be kind enough to make me a flag. :)

As you will see, our national animal is the Cheetah, and we have some forest. I would like to have a flag that builds on this in some way, perhaps with a Cheetah, some trees, a river - what do you think? As you are the experts in flag design, I'd welcome your ideas on how we can include appropriate symbols.

As far as colours are concerned, I am happy to have anything that allows for the symbols on the flag to show up clearly. Rather than horizontal or vertical stripes, I would like curved ones (horizontal) - to give the image of a flag in the wind, if you know what I mean. If the Cheetah etc are to show up, would it be wise for the centre stripe to be the biggest and the others smaller but of equal size?

These are only my ideas: if anyone can think of a better flag for Lightland I'd love to see it.

Finally, thank you for the work you do on flags for everyone. There are some lovely examples here.

With diplomatic regards

The Government of Lightland

(PS.I'm all alone in my own region at the moment, but I don't think advertising is popular on the board. Can anyone suggest what I should do to attract interest to Fair Share States?

Hate to request again, but could I have my boring, uncreative tricolour made better. I would like:

All of the colours (colors) the same length. Now it looks like a school child drew it free-hand.

I would like a symbol of just a head of a black filled wolf howling at a black filled moon. And that symbol put in the center.

Thanks alot. I wish this shop existed in real life. :lol2:

How thick do you need the lines.

I would like the lines to have no thickness if you get what I mean, and could you send me a version only divided by thicker points

Hey, I'll work on this now. So you don't want the brown and orange wicker-type design on it? I'll create a flag now with what I think suits your needs :) Check back soon.

I didn't know whether you wanted the shield also removed or just the lion so I took out everything because the shield didn't look too well on its own. I used a purple for the two "Scotland-like" sections a shade or two darker than the purple in your flag. Hope this is OK.

I know that you don't really care about the symbolism, but I read a web page saying that it's good to have reasons for things on flags.

Hey, I did a few for you because I don't know exactly what you'd like. You can let me know if colours are OK in one picture and whether you want the skull to be something else, and I can redo it ;) My personal favourite is the forth one.

And i won't make my own as art skills, self esteem, an eye for the beautiful, or anything art related are in extremely short supply for me.

Anyhow i leave most thing up to the flag maker but can i get a symbol related to these things

Hey, I thought because you chose Luxembourg's flag originally that you liked the colours so I used the same ones. There's one with various colours used and the second one is more "flag like" with flattened and less colour variation. As for the "curved lines" I give you the same two flags with a waving flag texture underneath to give them a more realistic look. I hope you like them :)
