I saw there was some texturing on the green part of your flag. I wasn't sure if this was intentional (to represent forests) or not, so I made a design with a geometric forest pattern and one with just plain green. Let me know what you think.

Did you mean just the wolf or the entire flag? I have made a design with a bigger wolf and one with a wolf the same size.

I'd recommend going to a lighter shade of blue for the lakes, for better contrast with their background here, as well: That or giving them a thin border in either white or yellow, which would be a bit trickier, anyway....

This version has that element's length & breadth both increased to 120% of their original values. It isn't exactly a quarter of the flag as a whole, due to the ratio in in proportions between that element's original size and the overall flag, but it's within the range that I've seen used in RL flag.


Thank you so much!! It looks amazing

You're welcome.
Your new alternative version, with the elements re-arranged, looks pretty good too.
Would you like to see the version with a different shade of blue?

Here's your current design but with the different blue that I had in mind.

Is this an appropriate place to ask for flag-making advice? I personally make my own flags, but sometimes get stuck, and so I'd appreciate advice from fellow flag-makers. :unsure: :blush:

You have a very intricately designed flag on the left there. It's very well done. Personally I prefer more minimalist designs, but we all have our likes and dislikes in vexillology, and the beauty of art is it is subjective. There is a short book called 'Good Flag, Bad Flag' that has the following five principles for a flag...

1. Keep It Simple. The flag should be so simple that a child can draw it from memory.
2. Use Meaningful Symbolism. The flag’s images, colours, or patterns should relate to what it symbolises.
3. Use 2 or 3 Basic Colours. Limit the number of colours on the flag to three which contrast well and come from the standard colour set.
4. No Lettering or Seals. Never use writing of any kind or an organisation’s seal.
5. Be Distinctive or Be Related. Avoid duplicating other flags, but use similarities to show connections.

To be honest, I'm not even sure if my current flag lives up to all of these rules. The sun might be a bit too complicated on my current design, but I think there are generally good rules to go by for clean, simple but effective flags.

Oh, no - I was asking in general, not about Keira's current flag! I'm fine with Keira's flag even if it is hellishly complex. I'm also fine with breaking some of the well-known flag rules.

I actually wanted advice about a coat of arms I'm making to later be put on Osttera's flag. I'm done with the royal cape thingy, and now I'm working on the central shield. It's going to be inspired by this Big Body Love logo. Here's a sketch of what I've done so far - heart-shaped booty shield.

So, as you can see, I have the heart figured out, but I dunno how to incorporate the Bs. I was thinking about maybe having a key from each side - yano, a classic royal-ish symbol - with the heads of the keys being B-shaped. But the heads would need to be big, which would mean the key blade would need to be big and long as well, and that's not going to fit into the shield. :unsure: Of course, having a pair of breasts representing the B has also crossed my mind, but that would be against the rules on NS. :lol:

Any thoughts/suggestions?

I'd like it if someone could make a flag with a slightly different eagle design to what I have now with more rounded, wider wings and maybe have him clutching two rifles in his talons.

I would like a flag that has a line coming down from the upmost left corner to the lowest right corner. This line will be black. Then On the left side of line dark red and on the right yellow ( a bold bright yellow). The thickness of the line will be the same as the flag of Trinidad and Tobago.

It took me longer to figure out what you were asking for than to make the flag. :lol: Is this what you wanted?

Oh my bad, friend. I wasn't sure about the context as you didn't mention any specifics. From what you have mentioned here, I definitely like the ideas of keys representing the Bs. That makes a lot of sense to me.

For the rest of you people asking for flags, I'm very sorry to inform you I have fractured my dominant hand at work and won't be able to help fulfil your wishes for a little while. Hopefully one of the other very talented people on here will be able to help out.
