How Would You Improve AN’s Flag?

Postby Durachistan » Wed Oct 23, 2019 8:02 am

How would you improve the above nation’s flag? What would you do to improve my flag? Remove the sun? Place the sun somewhere else? Change the color scheme? These are all fine examples for what this post is about.

I'd get rid of the ripple and make the star 8-pronged, so as to allow for rotational symmetry with the cross motif.

Remove the red bars at the bottom left and right and make the bands at the top a single color. Tbh not too sure

I think it's a very good flag, but it would be perfect if it was altered to remove the lower third of it. @Durachistan

It was made on MS paint because it was based on a conceptual drawing which I made and scanned; it's original, not a composite of PNG renderings of national flags.

In answer to your question which you sent by telegram - I meant, of course, the lowest half removed so that your flag has only two bars.

Remove all the Arabic text. Then add some general design stuff, because tricolours are boring.

One of three things:
- leave more space between the 7-pointed star and the outer circle
- Go for an even pointed star for symmetry's sake
- Add contrast by changing the star's colour or the light blue squares' colour

Make the blue a little bit deeper, slightly increase the size of the symbols at the centre, and/or maybe add some minor decorations like lines at the sides. It looks a little empty somehow.

I'd also like to apologise for the confusion in that other thread, your flag isn't bad :p

It looks like a flag for an underground society (if that’s already what you’re going for) I would alter the crest/icon just a little but other than that it’s a great flag

Definitely make the flag a square shape, and then fill the blue inside the orange with... Orange. Then again, there may be some symbolism here that i'm missing because i'm uncultured, but still. From a purely vexillological view, it makes sense.

Just change the proportions a bit so that the top-left icon doesn't seem so squished-in. Other than that it's a pretty good flag.

I'd advise the star to be moved to the left a little, and up a bit - I dunno, it feels a little on the huh.
I'd also remove the Santa hat from the flag, but as it's not long till Christmas comes again, and the fact that I think you mentioned that you "cannae be fucked" to remove it... guess it stays.
