How many vexillogical rules are broken in AN's flag?

You can read the title. Go ahead and do what it says.

I have nothing to state because no one is above me :(
Pacifism, economic growth, capitalism, right-wing parties, except far right parties, gay rights, abortion rights, birth control, stopping global warming, knowing Delaware is a real state, cheese
Buy my oil, it's quality oil
Biden, fake news, socialism/communism, constant war, old Sonic design, fascism, people who use fascism to refer to conservatives like they're using the right definition.

It would probably help if you included what you define as the "vexillogical rules" since not everyone knows them, or even agrees what they are.

AN: Orange and red are very close hues and could be difficult to discern apart, especially for people with color-blindness
Despite claims that our flag is a flower, I'd like to clarify by saying it's a typhoon. We are birds, after all. Typhoons are scary.

I'll start this off by saying that's a really nice flag you have, rules be damned. However, since this thread is about said rules - the circular symbol does look a bit complex, especially with the jagged bits at the ends. I can't imagine those would be particularly simple to replicate or easy to make out from a distance. The red strip between the white lines on the arrow shape might also be a concern in that regard - personally I prefer it the way it is, but a single, solid white line would probably look clearer from far away.

Honestly, aside from it being maybe slightly too complex for a five year old to draw it (as practically stated in the rules), it's honestly fine!

Not much. The dark gray and black border do not contrast well with the dark blue though. The branch/wreath emblems are also a bit complex.

The contrast is kinda weird that's all.

One [of the] rule[s] my flag breaks is that the symbolism is not very meaningful.

That black circle doesn't contrast well with the blue, and the different blue hues are distracting.

It doesn't break any that I know of, not that I'm an expert on the matter. I guess the contrast, or relative lack thereof, between the grey circle and the light grey field could be an issue.

Gradients are rarely, if ever, seen on national flags, and the symbol on the right would be a bit too complex for someone young to draw. Otherwise, it seems to be generally well-made.
