Rules

How this contest will work
1. Contest will begin after about one day passes, or when there are at least 16 flags from at least 8 different users. Whichever happens last.
2. Spots will be filled by real-life flags until there are 16, 32, or 64 flags in the competition.
3. Flags will be arranged to minimize competition between flags from the same submitter.
4. Each round of voting will last for about one day, or until there are ten votes, whichever happens last.
5. If there is a tie, both flags will compete in a three-way match, which requires 15 votes to declare a winner.
6. The Top 8 will receive trophies in the form of images that can be placed in factbooks, websites, etc.
7. Please do not vote more than once. You can campaign outsidcompete together e of the bracket, but do not use an organization or region to brigade. These rules are enforced very loosely. Disqualification is the ultimate punishment, but I will not use it unless there is evidence (rare because not even mods can see who voted) and the offender has been given a chance to explain themselves.
8. Remember that submitted flags may be different from NS flags - look at the OP or the post announcing the match before you look at NS nations.

Flag Requirements
0. As of writing, the bracket is full and submissions are closed. Thanks to everyone who submitted. Submissions are not accepted after the first stage of the bracket passes, and are only accepted if there is a filler flag that has not yet been voted on. Please, if you can, submit flags during the Accepting Submissions phase (which as of writing this has passed)
1. The most preferred way to submit flags is a direct link to an image. As long as I can find a way to directly link to the image, it is fine. You can either submit a reply or telegram me.
2. Default flags (that is, the flags of real nations that are included in NationStates) are not allowed. Those flags will be used to fill space in the bracket.
3. Maximum 4 flags per USER (meaning you, owners of puppets, can only submit 4 of your puppets' flags)
4. Maximum 64 flags total - after this limit is reached submissions will not be added (I just don't want to keep track of too many. I was originally going to accept 128 but then I realized that would take almost a year to finish.)
5. Flags do not have to technically be flags in the traditional sense, they can even be gifs, but they DO have to follow the NationStates rules.
6. If you want to add a description to your flag you can provide it at any time before yours goes up to its first vote. Post the description in the thread or telegram it to me and I will add it next to your submission. (Suggested by Diarcesia.)

None yet, thankfully.

Globe flag - In Top 32
The dark colors combined with the globe represent the Mainframe's interconnected nature and its total dominance over various planets. Based on this: Flag of the Internet.

Image
Reboot symbol flag - Defeated (Top 32)
The reboot symbol was chosen to represent the nature of the Mainframe: a computer, constantly upgrading itself.

Image
Veskrona - In Top 32
The post-revolutionary flag of the unified Veskronan state was designed by Shioris Valthar himself before he became the nation's Commandant, a few years into the Revolution when he took charge of the Futurists and solidified their ideology based on his own. The hammer and cog represent industry and technology, while the sickle blade represents agriculture. Together, they represent Veskrona's new age, and its driving forces and core tenets - prosperity, strength, advancement, and labour. The red symbolises the strength and vitality of the nation, as well as its lifeblood, both in the sense of shared blood and in the sense of revolutionary bloodshed. The black bars around it symbolise the nation's unbreaking unity and common will, while the white field stands for hope, clarity, and rejection of ignorance, additionally being inspired by the land's deep, cold winters and boreal climate from which the Veskronan people emerged.

The eagle has always been an important bird to South Reinkalistan; the sword it clutches in this flag represents the nation's militarism, while the grain represents its agricultural past. The six stars in the eagle's chest represent the six provinces of the People's Federation, and the big 8-point star at the top is the "Red Star of Tosdoda", the symbol of the state religion's God.

Onfande Main flag - In Top 32
Ever since the Onfandeen Transition Period (2073-2075), we have used this flag as a national symbol. The Onfandite flag stands for 4 things: The monarchy, the waters, the nature, and the culture. The reason that we have chosen this flag is because the former flag of Onfande was decided to no longer suit our needs, due to many in the international community saying "it looked like a badge, or a rank (https://i.imgur.com/4FBb5Oz.png)." So, this flag was created in response. It has the same dimensions of the previous flag, but is somewhat more complex. In the center of our banner, is the symbol of the current ruling family in Onfande, who are known as "the best rulers of Onfande" due to how friendly, and incorruptible they are. (excluding an incident that happened in 2112)

On the sides of the flag are a symbol of our diverse culture, with them representing our purity, and nature, but as well as the history of this nation, with much of the red color on the flag representing those who died to bring us glory. As for the main part of the flag, which is blue, it represents our nature as well, mainly the water, due to the majority of our land being on a beautiful island.

I'm not really sure how to explain my flags but let's just say that William Afton (AKA: Purple Guy) has done some pretty messed up things in his life and he feels nothing but sorrow and regret for what he did to the 5 missing children. Basically, just read up on the lore behind FNAF and then come back and tell me what you think.

Present day - Defeated (Top 64)
Original design from Interior Secretary Thomas Natborough under then President Adam Watkins in 201 ALA as a simple red saltire on a white background similar to that of the Kingdom Flag, but then added some bolder and darker shades of blue and green to represent Aurevbush's new set of ideals (peace, freedom, and justice) for its bicentennial. The blue represents the big beautiful sky, freedom and perseverance,
green triangle on the bottom represents
the majestic landscape of Aurevbush's nature and the planet's children that call Aurevbush home.
WHITE sides: Peace, innocence, and serenity
Red Saltire: Heritage, valor, and strength


Image
Aurevbushan Kingdom - Defeated (Top 32)
Red and white saltire was the original symbol and part of the original coat of arms of the preceding kingdom of Aurevalle (May or may not point to references of the St. Andrew's cross). The Blue represents Loyalty, Unity, and Aletness with the green bottom triangle representing the Hill of Lappenport where Andrew the Grand declared a mountainous victory over the invading Ronosaran forces and boasted victory at Castle Lulilio. The crown is self explanatory. First established as early as Year 2 BALA. Variants of the Kingdom flag include several coats of arms from the precursor kingdoms that have established the Aurevbushan Continental Dominion subsequently.

Image
Liberty Federation of Aurevbush - In Top 16
On 13th of Leandry, 131 ALA, when word broke out that the Imperial Prateorian guard prohibited further gatherings at urban areas, Leo Gouto and his Rebellion decided that maybe the better solution would be to break away from the kingdom and form their own nation independent of its realms. The New Republican Symbolism Committee held a month long contest to determine what flag would be suitable in representing the new born nation's fight for individualism and sovereingty. The design shown here won by a landslide.

13 red and white stars represented the thirteen inviolable rights or 13 provinces of the kingdom that separated first (contrary to the popular claim to socialism). The red representing the blood and sweat driven from industrial workers and soldiers, the white representing the hope and purity of homewives and nurses, and the green represented the land and vegitation planted and reaped by farmers across the land. Today, it is used as a symbol of Aurevbush's first struggle for liberty in a historical era and can be found in many civil rights protests across the country.

Strahcoin - In Top 32
The current leader of the nation, who was born in America, somehow ended up on the land, saved a starving tribe, and established a constitutional capitalist republic that continues to prosper. The blue, red, and white stripes represent the nation's loyalty and patriotism to America and its values (even though it's an independent nation), while the yellow coin (supposed to be a Strahcoin, the currency of the nation) and the brown briefcase represent its devotion to free-market capitalism. The lightning bolt represents the nation's support for science and innovation, which (along with the capitalism) helped the people here from struggling to feed themselves to enjoying modern to futuristic luxuries.

Image
Ergoslatic - Defeated (Top 64)
Before the Ergoslatic Revolution, Ergoslatic was an empire led by an absolute monarchy. However, not many were happy with this. The current leader of Ergoslatic - Joleneir Pytoun - organized the Ergoslatic Revolution to overthrow the monarchy and establish socialism. The revolutionaries succeeded, and the Empire of Ergoslatic became the Socialist Federation of Ergoslatic. This new economic system is represented by the seven stars on the flag (there are also seven federated states in Ergoslatic), with red representing revolution and bloodshed. The burning Strahcoin was added on the right to show Ergoslatic's contempt for the constitutional capitalist republic and its intent to destroy the right.

Before reading further, try to guess the meaning of the flag.


The lynx symbolizes the Barrier, the Salvation, the Mark of Endurance, for our founder Arcesius was delivered from an arrow that would have ended his life by this creature as he was hunted down by his so-called friends. The red symbolizes the sacrifice, the new overcoming the old, the Sea of Blood, for this is the price that the Mark of Endurance paid to ensure Arcesius's survival. The First Monarch took the Creature with him, healed its scars, and became his loyal companion.

The X-Dossiers has exposed a second conspiracy, this time involving the House of Arkess, who it claims has been hiding the truth about the Diarcesian Unification for years. If true, this would mean that even though the Monarchy has claimed otherwise, the father of the First Monarch is actually the real author of the Diarcesian flag, as well as other symbols and devices associated with the Monarchy.


Image
Hylvoria - In Top 32
The dark green background symbolizes its jungle environment. The lighter green stripes symbolize the taming of the land on the Hylvorians' arrival. The number of stripes (eight) stand for the historical cities in the realm. The center stripe represents the Protathlete River, that the background is diagonal underscores the rivers' significance to the realm. The emblem is the royal family's crest.

Image
Losphorotoene - Defeated (Top 32)
Located in a tropical climate with a maritime-oriented culture, the center yellow stripe symbolizes the shoreline and their sea-longing. The blue stripes on both sides symbolizes their historical reputation as prolific seafarers. A lot of them were explorers and pirates. It means that whether east or west, they are present in its oceans. The turtle emblem is for the constancy of the water, land, and the people. The arrow stuck in the turtle shell (added after the Diarcesian conquest) stands for their resolve that even if their way of life gets threatened, they will still remain intact. No, it's not a reference to anything at all.

Image
Wochaystein - Defeated (Top 32)
A vestigial theocratic empire with its emperor also head of its church, the colors were inspired by the house of Phönizien. The golden cross is for Christianity and the illumination of the word of God. The purple is the color of the Phönizien emperors, and it is a remembrance of the Holy Empire at its height. The orange background represents the intensity of their zeal, just like how the sunrise extinguishes the darkness. The emblem stands for their natural resources being blessed by the cleansing flame.

The Kandorese flag is named 'The Immortal Flower' and modeled after the national flowers the Kanyuo Lotus and Sakura flower. The flag symbolizes the Kandorese Empire as a whole, where the largest flower stands for the monarch and the mandate of the gods for the imperial rule of the Empire.

The sakura flowers symbolize the Kandorese government and the Kandorese people and culture. The colour scheme was carefully chosen for this national symbol and has deep roots within Kandorese history. The red symbolizes national pride, strive and the blood that was spilled to defend the nation in it's most harsh times. The white of the flag stands for the purity and devoutness of the Kandorese nation and people.

The circle surrounding the Imperial Flower symbolizes the moon and the moon goddess, from who the monarch is born in mythology. It also refers to the first Kandorese Emperor. The rays coming from the moon circle are the twelve major provinces of the Kandorese nation, but also symbolize the 12 main gods of the Tendo pantheon who are believed to be the "parents" of all Kandorese people.

As a whole the flag symbolizes the Kandorese religion, nation, the people and the unification of the country.

Peacetime Banner - Defeated (Top 64)
The El Retorcido - or the Coiled Eight - is the national seal of the Hierarchy of Renascento - representing the concepts of eternity and abundance. It is also the seal of the former Archon of the late Romezia, Elevtherio, who is known as a patron of the arts.

The color purple signify one of the main trades of Renascento: Epimarine purple, which is the only natural source of purple dye within the continent, and the purple silks the nation is famous for. Gold represents the market, wealth, and the noble metal; whereas the color white refers to the poisonous ashes covering their former capital Triptych and the efforts to purify themselves in the eyes of the Archons, as well as being the primary color worn by the faith. And lastly, the red stripes within the El Retorcido symbolize the blood shed during the El Quemada Fresno.

Main flag (Old Squiddy) - In Top 32
The blue and white striped area represents a stormy sea, the dark and light grey stripes a stormy sky. Together they represent the frequent inclement weather we experience, and in a less overt sense the tumultuous journey we endured to arrive and survive in our new land.

The blue circle represents egalitarian equality; the red star, which evolved from a stylized fox head, represents intelligence and guile. Each symbol was the respective insignia of two different underground science organizations that together escaped persecution by resurgent religious authorities in an alternate 16th century England where the Church clamped down of the Enlightenment. The gold border represents the integrity and strength of Science uniting the two.

The current flag was designed by an art student, Petrovka Schillinger, a 19 year old graphic designer, as her entry into a contest sponsored by the Council of Sciencemasters in the early Sixties to replace a more ornate, excessive, and baroque design. The old design was... interesting. There were tentacles (one reason the flag is still referred to as "Old Squiddy").

Satuga was once a country ruled by an iron fist, corruption, political sabotage, and "disappearances" ran rampant. However a fatal error was made by the corrupt rulers of Satuga. They thought even if their shady happenings were revealed the public would stay quiet out of fear, this turned out to be a special case. A man identified only as "the Igniter" stood in protest against the government, and you can imagine how well that went. The government sent troops over to "dispatch" the protester. Though instead of allowing himself to be taken or killed by them, he took the Thích Quang Duc route, dousing himself in lighter fluid, and a thin layer of metal. When the troops decided to end it by killing him to set an example, the bullet hit the metal plating, igniting fluid he had lathered onto his body. He was killed instantly, but his body burst into flames. This outraged the public, with more courageous folk taking it upon themselves to create the "Satugan Liberators" an underground organization dedicated to overthrowing the tyrannical regime. Long story short, after many leaders of the Satugan Liberators had been captured and executed, many more took their place. In the end the revolution garnered so much support that a majority of the population had been a part of it. The revolution finally ended when the tyrannical leader was overthrown violently, and executed in the streets.
When creating a new government and nation it took a very long time to decide on the flag structure, the people wanted something unique, and powerful. Then one of them suggested a Hydra, to represent the many times the freedom fighters leadership had been killed only to be replaced, as well to show that no matter what happens the people will always fight. And thus the flag and symbolsim of Satuga was created.

The Thakian flag often called "The Solar Banner" is a flag consisting of three colour stripes (Blue, Red and Black) and the national symbol of Thakia accompanied by an Olive branch in the upper left corner.

Blue represents the sky above, Red represents The kingdom of Novgyrod (That had a red flag), black represents the Kingdom of Silveria (That had a black flag), And the royal symbol represents these kingdoms united under a common crown.

Here is a diagram describing the meaning of the flag.

Image
Five Star Cross - In Top 32
The Five-Star Cross was created by the Cosmician Vexillological Organization in 1072917. The Five-Star Cross has three colors, yellow, black and white. The cross represents the expanse of Greater Cosmicium, the four stars on each corner represent four of the five main species of Greater Cosmicium: Humans, Khaazai, Scorpions and Dragons, and the star in the middle represents the unity of Greater Cosmicium, an increasingly ironic thing as the four factions come ever closer to civil war.

The current flag was adopted after the Second Serican Occupation, to rejoice at our freedom. The blue represents the sky, justice, and liberation. The green represents hope and the forests. The white represents the snow on Ssejekistan's mountaintops. The flame emblem in the middle is a symbol of Ssejekistani polytheism. The stars were added later, as a remembrance of Ssejekistan's time being oppressed by the Daryet Union.

On this index, my army is a 6-6-8.
OOC: I support (not necessarily in order) conservatism, capitalism, patriotism, freedom of speech, right to bear arms, pro-life, low taxes, strong national defense, assimilation, legal immigration, science, death penalty for the worst crimes, anti-communism, anti-fascism, anti-socialism. There are only two genders. Nation mostly represents my views.
