Competition: make an ex-nation flag!

Postby [violet] » Sun May 03, 2009 9:56 pm

I need an avatar for ex-nations -- those who have been deleted for inactivity, or asshattedness. Anyone want to make one?

I think ideally the ex-nation flag should be the same size as a standard nation flag :D

Is there a copyright issue with using the headstone from Ghost & Goblins?

Should really be an RIP avatar of sorts, Ghost & Goblins has a good retro feel.

It's crappy, but hey, someone needs to set the ball rolling. I'm sure someone else can make a much better one.

That bronzed bastard Scolopendra has stolen my idea AND actually created an image to boot so I'm changing my mind and upping the game: Image

Both in terms of stubbing out a nasty piece of work or just extinguishing once finished.

Well, I stole the R.I.P. headstone idea. Has nothing to do with GnG, tho, and it got you to make an image yourself. :P

The problem is, if you're scrolling posts down, that would register as still alive initally. At least to me. Hopefully without being too jarring, it should be easy to recognize that that poster no longer exists.

(All resized to 107x71 - the NS Flag size)
First I can think of:

The "flat-line" flag. Y'know, the EKG recording of a dead person: Uses NS colors too! :lol:
Image

Partly inspired by the flag of Lombardy:
Image
The poppy (sanguine quatrefoil), in heraldry, symbolizes sleep and death, sacrifice, remembrance, hope and joy.
(I have a bigger version too.)

I'll post if my creative juices work further. ;)

This blends into the forum color scheme, making it stand out from the colorful flags of most actual nations without being distracting.

That looks really good, maybe the writing should be slightly darker grey, but it is obvious what it means.
