NationStates Flag Bracket II

Top 64 Match 3
Duolin - Midnight (by Diarcesia) vs The Perpetual Peace - Alternate
Vote for your favorite flag and, if you want, explain your preference in the thread!

Time for the top 64! Submissions are now locked in, no substantial changes allowed. Good luck to the remaining competitors.

Image
Duolin - Midnight
Three stars: The brightest stellar trio in the night sky as seen from Duolin, taken as an omen by its founders to settle there.
Blue: Tranquility and the many facets of life
Blue stripes on yellow: The four main rivers that traverse the land to the sea
Triangle at the bottom: Vision and resolve. The intended visual effect is for the viewer to imagine himself in a path moving forward to the horizon during nighttime. A reference to the story of Duolin's founding.

The Perpetual Peace - Alternate


From late last February to the end of last April, I ran the first NationStates Flag Bracket. It was a much greater success than I anticipated, and clearly, there was demand for this type of competition. A lot of players wanted to submit flags but couldn't, and others wanted to submit different ones than what they had submitted, so it's only fair that they had an opportunity to do so. It's time for NationStates Flag Bracket II.

This competition aims to conclusively answer the question: what is the best flag on NationStates? Every day, two flags will be matched against each other to determine which one is the superior flag. Whichever flag gets more votes will win the round and continue onto the next stage of the bracket. The one that has fewer votes is eliminated. Eventually, only the best flags of this site will remain. The submitters of the top 8 flags will receive a legendary trading card as a reward for each flag.

Rules

Contest Rules:
1. The Flag Bracket is a single-elimination bracket, eliminating flags in each match until reaching the final round, which will determine the best flag on all of NationStates.
2. Submissions close after there are 64 total flags in the competition, and the day after that, the contest will begin.
3. Each match will last a day, but may be extended if there are less than 10 votes. The losing flag will be eliminated from future rounds.
4. If there is a tie, both flags will compete in a three-way match which requires 15 votes to declare a winner.
5. The Top 8 will receive trophies in the form of images that can be placed in factbooks, websites, etc. and special lines to place in the signature. Some may also receive Epic or Legendary trading cards, depending on how many I have at the end of the bracket.

Voting and Discussion Rules:
1. Do not vote more than once.
2. If you have a position of power in a region or organization, you may not require members of that organization to vote for a specific flag or otherwise use privileges of that organization in your campaign.
3. 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.
4. Drama from other parts of the site is not a good reason to vote against a flag. Please do not derail the thread with your disputes with another player.

Flag Rules:
1. Flags must comply with sitewide rules.
2. You may not submit the flags of real-world nations.
3. Any method of submitting a flag is okay as long as it can be embedded in the OP. This means that the flag must be an image under 1800px wide, on a site that NS allows to be embedded, and in a format that NS supports.
4. If your submitted flag can no longer be accessed, you will be required to reupload it. It is therefore recommended, but not required, that you upload your flag externally, since if you change your flag and this bracket relies on the NationStates upload, you will be required to do so anyway.
5. You may include a description of your flag, describing its meaning, IC and OOC history, and anything else about the flag.
6. There is a limit of 4 flags per *user*. This means that owners of multiple puppets cannot submit more than four puppets' flags.
7. There is a limit of 128 total submissions.
8. If there are more than 8 submissions that are not flags, they will be matched against each other whenever possible, ensuring that a non-flag has representation in the top 8.
9. You may ask to change your flag or its description at any time as long as it has not gone to a vote yet. Note that after the top 64 all submissions are locked in.

Submissions

Total: 128 flags from 53 submitters (excluding 2 withdrawn).
Remaining: 62 flags from 32 submitters.
2 two-way ties in place.
Image
The Cosmic Mainframe
OOC, the symbol in the center is a reboot symbol, combining reload and shutdown symbols, based on the one from GNOME's Adwaita theme. IC, the symbol represents the Mainframe, as a computer that is constantly improving. The lines emanating from it resemble a circuitboard, showing the connectedness of the Mainframe's society both figuratively and literally, through their Mental Enhancement Units. The fact that the lines seem to emanate from a central point (the reboot symbol) also represents the Root Processors, who centrally command the Mainframe.

Image
Paradeavenlisian States
The colour scheme has, perhaps, the most detailed meaning to it. Each colour represents each major native species(and sub species) and region of Paradeavenlisian States(all of which actually have good reasons involving the major habitats and cultures of Paradeavenlisian States.

The blue represents Homo Coelum, Plymnola and the ocean as blue is associated with the sea, which is also what the culture of Homo Coelum is often associated with. One reason why the blue also represents the ocean is because the vast ocean was(along with the storm)what has made Paradeavenlisian States into the truly unique and distinct nation it is today, which also explains why the blue is the biggest colour in the flag.

The green represents Homo Tierra, Belltona and the environment, particularly the vast forests as green is associated with the environment especially forests and Homo Tierra seems to have had the oldest bond with nature out of any native intelligent sentient beings. This is due to the fact that their region, Belltona, has the highest percentage of forest cover of any region. In addition, it also represents the main political party of Paradeavenlisian States: United Green Party.

The yellow represents Homo Paradis, Angelshear, as well as the strong and flexible economy of PS and vast meadows of flowers in Angelshear. The reason why it represents Homo Paradis is because of the vast amount of agriculture they had conducted historically. It also represents the tranquil beaches of Paradeavenlisian States.

The white represents the sub species of Homo Coelum(Homo Coelum Farc in Logreyhiel), Logreyhiel and white-capped mountains and volcanoes dotted across the nation. It, along with the stars in general, represent the extremely long-term peace that has been experienced throughout the archipelago.

The antlers represent the strong bond and coexistence held between the humanoids and other animals for millions of years. In addition, what many people don't seem to know is that the antlers actually also represent the phoenixes(yes, the phoenixes of Paradeavenlisian States have antlers) especially the guardian phoenixes that patrol near the storm.

The yellow outline of the shield represents the storm itself as well as all of the other defenses of Paradeavenlisian States as a whole. The stars themselves actually represent the archipelago of Paradavenlisian States as a whole and shows the stability brought and gifted to the nation as a result of these defenses. The stars also represent the peaceful unification and peaceful coexistence between the people of Paradeavenlisian States and additionally represent the 5 groups of native humanoids: Homo Sapiens, Homo Coelum, Homo Paradis, Homo Tierra and Homo Coelum (although not a seperate humanoid species, they are notably distinct from other Homo Coelum sub-species, especially culturally and morphological characteristic). Another thing that the stars represent is the Stangelic Energy which has had a huge impact on the nation.

Image
Esceanian Union
The red represents the phoenixes as the co-inhabitants while the blue represents the maritime culture that has been associated with the native Homo Coelum. The white stripe represents the peaceful interactions between the humanoids and the phoenixes. And, lastly, the torches represent prosperity and hope maintained throughout the Esceanian Union.

Image
Paradisia Heavenlonia Stralisia Union
The red star represents Stangelic Energy and unity. It also represents the six main elemental phoenixes that roam the archipelago with the exception of the rainbow phoenix which is represented by the white stripes on the star as the creator of them. The white represents the glaciated topped and symbolic Leecona Mountains. The blue represents the vast oceans that lie beyond the archipelago while the green represents the environment.

Image
Paradeavenlisian States - Alternate - Top 64
The white stripes represent the three species and the equality of each of them as well as the ever-lasting peace that has existed and been maintained. The yellow torches represent equality towards all citizens of Paradeavenlisian States as well as the unity over a common goal sought for millennia; a utopia. The blue represents the maritime culture that has existed, particularly around the coastlines of the archipelago. And, of course, the green represents the vast forests that stretch out across the Poiselantican archipelago as well as the coexistence between mankind and mother nature.

Image
Libstasia
This is called the flag for the nation of Libstasia, but is also known as the "forward" flag, with the two red arrows representing the leftist (red) movement taking the country forward, with the SocDem rose being an obvious nod to that as well.

Image
Glurponia - Top 128
The 'Tricolor' takes elements of design, symbolism, and color from each of the Coalition's primary cultures.

Image
The People's Arab Union - Top 128
From a universe where Soviet influence was focused on the Middle East more than Africa. The PAU owns most of the Arabian Peninsula and has a perpetual rivalry with its Western-influenced counterpart of the North Levant State.

This flag's design started with the idea of the Islamic crescent/sickle, then it was just a matter of choosing the order of the Pan-Arab colors and adding the shahadah to fill in the empty space.

Image
Six Lunar Duchies
Flag of the Six Lunar Duchies. What if Austria-Hungary lasted into the 2200's and had permanent moon colonies- one for each member state?

Image
Astoria - Main Flag
  • The six-star circle represents each of the states that make up the republic.
  • The centre star represents the unity of the federation [although since 1900 can also refer to the capital's territory - for a real-world example, think DC].
  • The blue background represents the north Atlantic ocean which surrounds the country.
  • The white stripes represent the uninterrupted peace that the nation has enjoyed since time immemorial.
  • The red stripes represents the popular uprising of 1643, which overthrew the then-extant monarchy & replaced it with one of the world's first republics

Image
Astoria - Alternate - Top 128
  • This flag has the same features as the official flag; however, the semicircle of stars have been replaced with the national coat of arms, which depict the original four states of the federation.

Image
Czisra
  • The alternating white & blue ribbons represent the Stečé river, popularly described as its "national" river.
  • The white background represents the people's desire for happiness.
  • The symbol in the flag's hoist represents the Žamij monument in Strámat'sthe capital Kábraj Square; before 1990, a hammer-and-sickle symbol took the place of the red star at the top.

Image
Azania - Main flag - Top 128

Image
Azania - Alternate flag
The black, yellow, and green evoke pan-african colors, while the bottom right part of the flag contains a representation of the flag of the South African Republic (one of the Boer republics). The overlapping of these symbols along the green stripe represents hope and unity for both black and white Azanians.

The stars represent Azania's three official capitols and their placement roughly aligns with their geographic position on a map. The ascending number of points on each star represents progress.

Image
Eagle-Star Cross
Developed around the same time as the Five-Star Cross, in 1072917, the Eagle-Star Cross has four stars, representing four of the five major races of Greater Cosmicium (Human, Khaazai, Scorpion and Dragon), the eagle, representing the power of Greater Cosmicium, and the cross representing the expanse of Greater Cosmicium. It has three colors: yellow, black and white.

Image
Star-Flame Eagle
The Star-Flame Eagle, developed in 1072916, has three colors: yellow, black and white. It has six stars, representing the five major races of Greater Cosmicium (Human, Khaazai, Scorpion, Dragon and Nuironi), and one large minor race (Imizga), an eagle, representing the power of Greater Cosmicium, and a yellow background with black stripes, representing the expanse of Greater Cosmicium.

Image
Unity of the Khaazai - Top 128
As a replacement for the official Khaazai flag, which had a symbol more deserving of being a seal, the Unity of the Khaazai flag was created in 1072917. It has five colors: blue, dark green, light green, white and black. The saltire represents the adventurous spirit of the Khaazai, the diamond in the center represents their homeland, Nyr-Khol, the sphere-like sign represents the unity of the Khaazai, and the light green boundary around the saltire and the diamond represent the Khaazai's dedication to nature.

Image
Northern Federation
This flag was created in 1978 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Northern Federation's foundation. It consists of four colors: dark cyan, red, dark blue and white, dark cyan representing the seas the Federation borders, red the blood spilled to create the Federation, and dark blue to represent the freezing cold of the North. Inside the circle, there is a central star, representing the Capital State, and six surrounding stars, representing the six nations that form the Federation.

South Reinkalistan - Main flag
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
Ever since the Onfandeen Transition Period (2023-2035(yes, pushing back my history)), 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 2033)

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.

Image
Eternia Autonomous Region - Top 128
Eternia is the Florida of Onfande, with crazy people and intense sunshine. Purple is the Region's national color, which is why its used on the flag so much. The purple color represents the seas of Eternia, with its many destinations. The symbol in the center is the national symbol for Eternia, with the most eye-catching symbol being the Sun. Althought it doesn't look like much, the Sun represents 4 things: The history of Eternia prior to its annexation, the agreement between the president of Eternia and the king of Onfande, the beautiful place it is now, and last, the future of this place.

Image
Mountainia Region
The Mountainia Region, also commonly called Syalssa by the locals, contains the most mountains in Onfande per-capita. It holds the largest peak of Onfande, Mount Olovye. This mountain is represented in the flag. Syalssa, like Eternia, is a beautiful place. Many times, you can see the Moon rise over the regional hub of Thonossie, which is represented by the star in the topleft canton of the flag.

Image
Liberty Federation of Aurevbush - Top 128
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.

Image
Barfleur
The color gold represents the high standards of excellence to which the people hold their government. The black cross represents the junction of all the citizens under one community, and the parallel white lines represent the equality enjoyed by all citizens. The blue represents the sea and sky, and the virtue of justice. The red represents fire, blood, and the virtue of liberty.

The flag of Ialvarith is known as the Black Sunrise, and evokes devotion to the three patron Gods of the Vaenar race as well as their people's mission to regain their lost glory. The black field represents the darkness of their late Empire's collapse, mourns its fall, and puts forth a message that the Vaenari must start anew. The sun is a symbol of the Sun-God Sshear'khaal, representing strength and enlightenment, while the intricate white lines allude to the Ice-Goddess Qrythua, representing fortitude, purity, and resolve. The positioning of the lines indicates flight, ascendance, and aspiration for the future, traits attributed to the Sky-God Saar'qathryl.

Solaurora
A fantasy version of New Solaurora. The kingdom of Solaurora was founded from the kingdoms of Sol and Aurora after a decades long war. Out of fear of invading forces the two kingdoms united. Since then their cultures and peoples have blended which has further ensured their unity. This flag represents a combination of the flags of the original kingdoms.

Three stars: The brightest stellar trio in the night sky as seen from Duolin, taken as an omen by its founders to settle there.
Spread wing outlined with dark gold: Freedom for its people to make their own living in the land, and a reference to the green owl (it's not green because it's overridden by the gold symbolism)

Image
The Albali Republic
The Albali Republic's flag consists of a stylised bird of prey, in the colours in of United Nations. Following the military coup and the end of a major galactic conflict in 2017, the Republic brought new ideals of peace and harmony to the Albalian people, which in my mind is what the UN's colours represent. The bird of prey has its origins in ancient Albalian lore, when an ancient king took a dozen of them for his pets. Since then, raptors have been associated with both power and grace, and has been a common pet for rulers embodying such qualities (and those who don't) ever since those cold, dark days of prehistory.

Image
Fallen Albali - Top 128
Fallen Albali's (or Roulons') flag is something of an oddity in the Albaliverse; the deep red and blue is a combination rarely seen, fitting the unusual conditions for Roulons itself. The traditional raptor has been altered almost beyond recognition, now being symmetrical and missing its head. This was to represent the battered state of Albali, but not to demoralise its citizens - instead, it was designed to unite them in the shared loss of their nation, to make them more angry at the enemy so they they would be winning to fight once more when the time for reclamation had come. The flag of the Republic is also flown above this one, to show that Roulons is still Albalian land.

Image
Catalibla - Top 128
Catalibla is a micronation in the Alps, and a voice of peace and harmony for Europe. The country is no stranger to servitude, having been a member state of the Holy Roman Empire, annexed into the Austro-Hungarian Empire, annexed by Nazi Germany, and later occupied by the French post-WW2. The red and black background comes from the historical flag of Catalibla; a striped flag with a red upper half and a black lower half. The new flag was adopted in 1952, keeping the traditional colours, with a white version of the HRE's Reichsadler in the middle. Catalibla found its origins in the HRE, and white prepresents the purity of its people and the hope for continued peace. In a red shield on the eagle's breast is a stylised edelweiss, a common flower in Catalibla, and one of its national symbols.

Image
The Albali Kingdom
The Albalian Kingdom's flag has been the longest-lived of all of Albali's flags, going unaltered for hundreds upon hundreds of years. The origins of the raptor has already been explained for the Republic's flag, so I won't explain it here. Blue and gold have traditionally been symbols of wealth in ancient times; gold because of the actual element of gold which was just as valuable to an alien community as it was for humans. Blue came from having blue clothing, as blue dyes were extremely rare and could only be afforded by the richest of the richest. Despite that no longer being the case, the connotations of associating the colour blue with outrageous wealth continued. A stylised wreath of olive branches sits below the raptor, representing one simple thing: victory. Meanwhile, the crown sitting higher than the stars above the raptor is no coincidence; it represents the power of the monarch - and by extension the state - being greater than that of even the stars themselves. This arrogant attitude had brought war to Albali's doorsteps more than once.

Vidinaz - Star of Discovery
The star and the wheel are important icons within Vidinese/Vidkvndan culture. Astrology is a hallowed occupation much the same as clergy, its importance lying in religion and navigation. Their gods were represented by the stars, both far and near, and the people of yore used the stars to determine their location and important events. The wheel symbolize Vidinese civilization itself and its constant march towards the future. Blue symbolize the sea and the void beyond. White symbolize the firmament that protects earthen life from the cold, endless void. Yellow alludes to gold - which then represent the eternal pursuit of Vidinaz's prosperity, and Red represents the sun and the warmth it brought.

In universe, this is the modernized version of the original flag.

Image
Sahyun - Vermilion Sky
The Vermillion Sky is colored in the traditional colors of Sahyun, which is red and gold. The four crescent moons and the eight-pointed star in the middle represents the sky and the void beyond, the dominion of Sahyun's god Averro. The landed crested ibis is one of the animals associated with the deity, aside from the fiery phoenix, and represents earned experience and wisdom.

Image
Mondeuta and Lybraesil - Alliance Jack - Top 128
Mondeuta and Lybraesil is an isolationist country, so much so that most people outside their borders often conflate the two, which wasn't helped any by the two nations' alliance. They are represented by the two crests in the middle: the Tower and the ermine Tree. The blues and blacks that surround them allude to the mountains that surround them and the rivers that snake through these peaks. The light grey symbolize Mondeuta's worship of the moon, while green is the same for Lybraesil and their forest spirits.

Image
Fars - Beneficent Trinity
Despite being a province of Sahyun, the distance between the two is vast enough to render Fars a nation-state in all but name. As such, their flag were designed by the Farsians themselves, with references to their masters. The crescents and star reference the god the two shared, and in the center is the Sinaean character for 'East', which points to their role as the gate between the western and eastern nations. White represent the sky, blue represent the sea, and green the fertile plains Farsian civilization was built upon.

Image
Greenwichian Arcadia
Taken from the factbook.
  • The white stands for sincerity, defiance, dazzling integrity and determination to uphold these ideals.
  • The green stands for constructive approach, hope, free thought, natural beauty and possibly for eco-friendliness.
  • The compass emblem, possibly designed by Greenwich herself, reminiscent of both the cartographer's rose and Polaris, represents the hope and dedication of Arcadian people to chart and pave the way to the new world of Reason, Progress and Freedom.

Image
Parthenia
  • The seal with the fallen crown symbolizes the 'overthrow of tyranny' motif present on the seal of RL-Virginia;
  • The green stripe, which stands for pristine natural beauty, is shaped like P character for 'Parthenia';
  • The blue stripe on the right (East) stands for the Atlantic.

Lura
The Luran flag is in a 1:2 ratio.
The flag is divided into three equally-sized vertical stripes, coloured white, white and black from left to right.
The two white thirds represent the knowledge already obtained by Lura.
The black third represents the knowledge yet to be learned by our population.
Taking up the right half of the leftmost third of the flag is a rainbow band of seven short horizontal stripes, which each represent a province of Lura. Each is coloured for the respective province's state colour, being their distinct pigment colour only they produce, and have become major exports, popular as dyes for the vibrance of the colours.

Bloodshade
The flag of Bloodshade is a representation of the plight of the Bloodshadian people: A mixture of refugees consisting of humans, elves, dwarfs and vampires who sailed an interstellar ark ship, 'Erebus', in order to find a paradise of their own amidst the stars, after the cataclysmic 'War of Woes' brought about extreme instability to their former homeworld's tectonic plates, enabling it to be plagued by volcanic eruptions and earthquakes until it would eventually blow up, exterminating all life along with its death. Now then, onto the meaning behind the flag which I shall go into detail. The colours and emblem on the flag represent a myriad of meanings:

  • The light blue is a representation of the perseverance of the Bloodshadian people as they travelled the black null void of space in order to find a place which they can finally call home. Some believe that it signifies the liberation of the people from the shackles of tradition and ancient grudges, joining in a common struggle to finally grant future generations a planet that they can call home, free from hazardous bigotry and xenophobia.
  • The blood-red aspect is an extremely significant part of the flag as it is supposed to immortalize those whose blood was spilt in the unfortunate 'War of Woes' and in the pursuit of a new home-world, currently named Tejon. The people of Bloodshade are not ones to shy away from conflict because they have everything to lose. Tejon is their home and they refuse to allow anyone to snatch that from them.
  • The white should represent the purity and innocence of the Bloodshadians as they roamed the galaxy in the hopes of settling down. They were a substantial collection of plucky, desperate survivors that simply wanted another chance at life, hoping that fate would be a merciful mistress for once. At their lowest point, they were finally of one heart and mind.
  • The 'Vega Eagle', named after the brightest star in Lyra, is supposed to represent the burning sensation in the souls of the Bloodshadians as they soar across the void of space. To them, the 'Vega Eagle' is a sign of hope, courage and regal power. Your typical eagle is known to be able to travel for 255 miles a day during its migration period, showcasing its determination and zeal. Coincidentally, the people have Bloodshade spent many years on the interstellar ark ship known as 'Erebus', neither stopping nor resting until they could settle down in greener pastures.
  • As for the bundle of arrows, officially, it is supposed to acknowledge the power being wielded the Vega Eagle. Some say it is a or should be a representation of the the militaristic nature of their people but most found this unofficial meaning to be rather traumatic and malicious in nature, considering the 'War of Woes' is still a rather fresh memory. Others claim that the 'three arrows' is a sign of resistance against the ancient ideologies that had resulted in the destruction of the Bloodshadian's original home planet. Those ideologies being ethnic nationalism, communism and absolute monarchism.
  • Simply put, the thunderbolt is a divine weapon. It is supposed to represent the instantaneous retributive destruction that Bloodshade could wreak upon its rival if its people were angered or wronged. Despite the depressing turn of events due to the 'War of Woes', this has only created stronger men and women that will rabidly protect what they believe is dear to them.

Postby Paradeavenlisian States » Fri May 01, 2020 5:37 am

Well, I got 4 flags here that I'd like to submit:
Image
The colour scheme has, perhaps, the most detailed meaning to it. Each colour represents each major native species(and sub species) and region of Paradeavenlisian States(all of which actually have good reasons involving the major habitats and cultures of Paradeavenlisian States.

The blue represents Homo Coelum, Plymnola and the ocean as blue is associated with the sea, which is also what the culture of Homo Coelum is often associated with. One reason why the blue also represents the ocean is because the vast ocean was(along with the storm)what has made Paradeavenlisian States into the truly unique and distinct nation it is today, which also explains why the blue is the biggest colour in the flag.

The green represents Homo Tierra, Belltona and the environment, particularly the vast forests as green is associated with the environment especially forests and Homo Tierra seems to have had the oldest bond with nature out of any native intelligent sentient beings. This is due to the fact that their region, Belltona, has the highest percentage of forest cover of any region. In addition, it also represents the main political party of Paradeavenlisian States: United Green Party.

The yellow represents Homo Paradis, Angelshear, as well as the strong and flexible economy of PS and vast meadows of flowers in Angelshear. The reason why it represents Homo Paradis is because of the vast amount of agriculture they had conducted historically. It also represents the tranquil beaches of Paradeavenlisian States.

The white represents the sub species of Homo Coelum(Homo Coelum Farc in Logreyhiel), Logreyhiel and white-capped mountains and volcanoes dotted across the nation. It, along with the stars in general, represent the extremely long-term peace that has been experienced throughout the archipelago.

The antlers represent the strong bond and coexistence held between the humanoids and other animals for millions of years. In addition, what many people don't seem to know is that the antlers actually also represent the phoenixes(yes, the phoenixes of Paradeavenlisian States have antlers) especially the guardian phoenixes that patrol near the storm.

The yellow outline of the shield represents the storm itself as well as all of the other defenses of Paradeavenlisian States as a whole. The stars themselves actually represent the archipelago of Paradavenlisian States as a whole and shows the stability brought and gifted to the nation as a result of these defenses. The stars also represent the peaceful unification and peaceful coexistence between the people of Paradeavenlisian States and additionally represent the 5 groups of native humanoids: Homo Sapiens, Homo Coelum, Homo Paradis, Homo Tierra and Homo Coelum (although not a seperate humanoid species, they are notably distinct from other Homo Coelum sub-species, especially culturally and morphological characteristic). Another thing that the stars represent is the Stangelic Energy which has had a huge impact on the nation.

Image
The red represents the phoenixes as the co-inhabitants while the blue represents the maritime culture that has been associated with the native Homo Coelum. The white stripe represents the peaceful interactions between the humanoids and the phoenixes. And, lastly, the torches represent prosperity and hope maintained throughout the Esceanian Union.

Image
The red star represents Stangelic Energy and unity. It also represents the six main elemental phoenixes that roam the archipelago with the exception of the rainbow phoenix which is represented by the white stripes on the star as the creator of them. The white represents the glaciated topped and symbolic Leecona Mountains. The blue represents the vast oceans that lie beyond the archipelago while the green represents the environment.

Image
The white stripes represent the three species and the equality of each of them as well as the ever-lasting peace that has existed and been maintained. The yellow torches represent equality towards all citizens of Paradeavenlisian States as well as the unity over a common goal sought for millennia; a utopia. The blue represents the maritime culture that has existed, particularly around the coastlines of the archipelago. And, of course, the green represents the vast forests that stretch out across the Poiselantican archipelago as well as the coexistence between mankind and mother nature.

If I have time, then I might also submit the meaning later this evening.
EDIT:I've just provided a description for both the alternate and actual Paradeavenlisian States. I'm just working on the descriptions of the other two flags.
Another(and probably last)edit:I've just completed all of the descriptions for my flags.

I'm baaaaaaaaaack!

Image

Developed around the same time as the Five-Star Cross, in 1072917, the Eagle-Star Cross has four stars, representing four of the five major races of Greater Cosmicium (Human, Khaazai, Scorpion and Dragon), the eagle, representing the power of Greater Cosmicium, and the cross representing the expanse of Greater Cosmicium. It has three colors: yellow, black and white.


Image

The Star-Flame Eagle, developed in 1072916, has three colors: yellow, black and white. It has six stars, representing the five major races of Greater Cosmicium (Human, Khaazai, Scorpion, Dragon and Nuironi), and one large minor race (Imizga), an eagle, representing the power of Greater Cosmicium, and a yellow background with black stripes, representing the expanse of Greater Cosmicium.


Image

As a replacement for the official Khaazai flag, which had a symbol more deserving of being a seal, the Unity of the Khaazai flag was created in 1072917. It has five colors: blue, dark green, light green, white and black. The saltire represents the adventurous spirit of the Khaazai, the diamond in the center represents their homeland, Nyr-Khol, the sphere-like sign represents the unity of the Khaazai, and the light green boundary around the saltire and the diamond represent the Khaazai's dedication to nature.

Valentine Z's GIF flag
Description: New and improved! And compressed down to < 30 seconds and lowered FPS to 25 in order to post it here. The high quality version can be seen here, which runs slightly slower, at 1920 x 1080 / 1080p, and at 60 fps.
Image


The flag of Alanis Star
Description: The current flag of my second oldest puppet, just right after Valentine Z being my first.
Image


The flag of Garden at 6th Mile Road
Description: As going with the nature of the nation, and with its name, a simple flag for Holly and her own little dimension!
Image


The flag of Samantha-Higgs
Description: The current flag of my dictatorship nation, which I went for subtlety instead of for obviousness. The Morse Code says: "Bow down to your Eternal Ruler."
Image


EDIT: Overall, my flags don't really follow the same vexillology rules as traditional flags, but I hope that you will still find them appealing, nonetheless. ♥

People are submitting faster than I can edit, it seems.

Hugstopia: Accepted! (Your secret main nation better not be one of the ones that has already submitted 4 flags, though.)

Ooh, this looks like quite a bit of fun. I'd like to submit my NS flag if that's ok?

Image

NATIONAL FLAG
KINGDOM OF VELOSIA

A simple tricolour, defaced with the lesser arms of the Kingdom of Velosia. From left to right, the individual colours represent the blue sea of the Velosian Isles, the iconic Velosian tidal beaches and the expansive autumnal forests that once covered the archipelago. Atop the shield is the royal crown of Velosia, worn by Velosian monarchs for almost a millennia. Prominent upon the shield itself is the golden lion of Ryburt de Callian, the personal standard of the foreign conqueror who subdued Velosia and founded the current Velosian royal house. The quartered design underneath comprises the green and grey banner of the House of Callian and the burgundy lion of the Kingdom of Sutharic, holding the golden war axe of the Kingdom of Ethalund (both of which were powerful pre-conquest states during the petty kingdoms period). Finally, the sailing ship underneath represents the nation's great seafaring tradition.

I'm not known for my creativity... I'll submit my NS flag again, with the same description, alongside the rather simple yet aesthetically pleasing (in my opinion) "Crimson Standard":
