9/10

The only problem I have with it is the fact I don't like a lot of white in flags. But that's just me.
We are Aguaria Major. We are a liberal communist democracy, and we are located in the Pacific on a vast archipelago between Hawaii and Fiji.

We heavily favor environmental protection and the funding of science and technology.

However, this doesn't mean we are pushovers. We spend billions on our military every year, and are not afraid to conquer nations which wrong us.

We boast great reserves of power and wealth in our mainland provinces of Lavendoria, Every Name I Tried Was Already Taken, and Nation of Beefheart, as well as powerful allies in our brothers in Antarctic Ceruleus.

Quite creative, but for some reason it doesn't appeal to me. Probably because it doesn't have much symmetry. Also, the green on black is nearly invisible, and would be even more so when flying on a pole outdoors. 7/10.

It's a very effective flag; I like the size of the symbol as it makes it look intricate and neat, but not ... invisible. I don't particularly like the colour scheme, but that's just personal taste. I think the colours are a little too dark. Nevertheless, it's distinctive and looks good overall, so 9/10.

I really see no significant issues aside from colour. I always caution the use of primaries together as they tend to render a fairly child-like, juvenile look. I appreciate the waves though, nice touch. 7/10

8.5/10. I feel like this flag would be a chore to reproduce, but the I love the stained glass (?) design in the center. It reminds me of the Notre Dame and the bands on either side frame it really well. If it were me I would try to simplify it and maybe change the background to a lighter grey or dark blue.

An interesting design, but I have a few problems with its implementation. Primarily, I think it would look a lot better with a larger central cross, greater corner-cutting on the black sections and maybe a yellow border between the black and white. Overall, a solid 6.5/10.
The Federal Bureaucracy of Yegla Islands is a nation forged from a war-torn, ownerless state into a gleaming bastion of socialism, technological advancement and personal freedoms. Can be seen as a strange amalgalm of Cuba and Norway, with patently ridiculous tax rates balanced out by a plethora of government-funded amenities for its citizens. Religion is ignored, the military is powerful beyond reason, and the government manages to function despite its monstrous size. All this balances on the shoulders of an ex-revolutionary, questionably-human, mostly-benevolent dictator. Oh, and they've discovered magic a little while ago.


Yes, this nation uses NS stats. Sort of. In a general kind of way. Ignore the diversity quotas - those were a misclick.

There are some really interesting and good ideas here, I won't suggest changing the elements themselves, but a rearrangement of some sort may work out nicely. 6/10 as it is.

Minty green on red is a no-no (Maybe all greens too?) and so does that sinister-facing "animal", but it's not too bad to be honest.

Very nature-y looking flag, I would say the design is pretty common, not exactly very unique. However, I quite like your flag just cause the contrast between green and pink is quite awesome. Solid 7/10

As always, there are some excellent ideas here. I would tidy the light beams and make them more balanced, and also consider redesigning the emblem to have better contrast to be more memorable. I'd keep the colours as they are, they make sense for the symbol of what the flag represents. 5/10

As for the Anglisch flag, it makes sense if you're going for the primitive look. It doesn't scream efficiency in design, but could work quite well if the circumstances are right. The best mix of over complication and simplicity I've seen...5/10

Not sure what the flag is trying to achieve but at least try to not make the colors blend in too much, as in they're just a few steps on the color wheel. Nice emblem but perhaps consider simplifying for it to be easily recognized in smaller sizes? 8.5/10
