7/10, its getting there. Make the border a bit thicker or ditch it altogether. Probably go with gold or red if your keeping it, which I'd advise against - although maybe it will look better if it is thicker. I dig the crest a lot. I'd perhaps stylise the crown a bit more, or change the orange felt to red/blue in order to make it stand out a bit more and fit with the shield colours. Change the dull gold frame to the same shade of yellow for the main sword/fasces

Current flag, or this version? Please keep in mind this is for a 'Holy Sun Empire' where the citizens believe they're living in the proclaimed state of heaven on earth.

9/10. It's a very simple design, but the blue color with the white is very pleasing to look at and the symbol in the center is interesting too. Only thing keeping it from 10/10 is that it does look a little empty, especially the edges. The symbol could've been bigger, or maybe a white stripe or something along the edges.

I'd recommend removing the border and making the text slightly smaller. 6/10.

9/10 - a little modern/stylised, but if thats what youre going for, 10/10. Cant see it being a flag pre-1980 though.

Please tell me the best out of my current flag or these three. Preferably, I want to keep the colour palette all gold and white.

I like the design, but I don't love the colour scheme. I think it would look better if one of the colours were changed. 6.5/10.

I would remove the ripple just so we can see it a little better. Aside from that, I'd make the stripes (cross) a bit thicker, and the star wouldn't touch the edges of the circle. 7.5/10

I like all of them more than your current flag. I like the emblem but I don't like the background color of your current flag. The first option of the ones you posted is the best one for ya.

Very simple and very neat. Only real criticism I have is that it's so bright that everything in the middle is hard to notice on the dark theme. 8/10.

AN: Good flag. Nice colour palette, the flower thing is small and non-intrusive, fits in well with the flag. The ring is a tad weird, though. 8.5/10.

The points actually touch the edge of the circle for a reason. The circle represents Pacomia, and the star represents the 7 founding regions of Pacomia. It’s supposed to signify that no part of Pacomia (the circle) is left unrepresented (by regions).

Interesting. In that case, why does the bottom one not touch the circle? Aside from that, not too bad. I still advocate for no ripple. If you want to see what your flag looks like with ripple, use this https://krikienoid.github.io/flagwaver/
That way we get a clean 'national database' version of your flag, and we can also put it into the waver to see how it looks waving around.
