Candesia Flag Changing Poll

Postby Candesia » Fri May 26, 2023 1:24 am

To The Thread,

Very recently, Candesian Ministry Of Flag And Banner has submitted a proposal to the long vacation taking Governor Tomkins MacJohan, via the message, where it says that they are not satisfied with their nation's flag. They wrote the following reasons :-


1. Flag is very similar with those of Yugoslavia flag, which was the communist nation, that don't exist today.

2. The flag of Candesia may symbolize Communism, which the less-than half of population have fears that recalling the Soviet Union, they may built a prison, where people will be tortured, just as it is Gulag of USSR.

3. Most people says that they copied with the flag of France. The difference is that, the flag of France is vertically tricolored, whereas the Candesia's flag is horizontally tricolored. Also, they copied with the flag of Netherlands. Difference is that the flag of Netherlands is red on the above and blue on the bottom ; and the flag of Candesia is opposite of it.

4. Most officials witnessed that the Governor was unable to symbolize the tricolor of Candesia.

5. Some flag officers said that no symbols like eagles, star, etc. will convenient with it.


So, from the above reasons, the Governor asked all the nations either from its own region or different regions that they should change their flag or not. So, he requested to vote on the above.


Signed by,
Tomkins MacJohan.

Current Flag of Candesia is :-

Not, really. If you want. It is really similar to the extinct Kindom of Yugoslavia. you could add a slighter blue tone, like the EU flag blue and add your state Coat of arms so it would be less confunsable with the Kingdom of the Netherlands if it hoisted inverted by mistake.

Oh Nice Suggestion. Btw, have you voted any option?

That's a very good suggestion.

But the thing is I can't find any emblem that I could put in my flag. Do you have any idea of websites that I can make in my own without any watermark of the company.

https://coamaker.com/ -- this one has a watermark, but maybe you can use it in a way or another
http://www.dominionofthorne.org/coat-of-arms/ -- I don't know if this one has a watermark or not, but you can actually design some pretty cool things with it, they look pretty Middle Ages but still, they are cool
https://www.fantasynamegenerators.com/c ... erator.php -- this one also works, but it's more basic than the others

There are many websites out there that can help you, you really just have to search for them. I designed a pretty basic government logo (not really a coat of arms) with a website I found which can be seen on my primary banner and on this dispatch.

I said I'm satisfied with the current flag. But I made a suggestion as I thought it could be a constructive proposal for a flag change.

Literally, I have tried all. The best was the Coamaker. But it has watermark. But I will manage.

That's good to hear. Wishing you good luck in designing you coat of arms!

Btw, using a website to design a CoA is kind of the easy way, if you want to create a truly unique and cool emblem for you state you can always try to check a few tutorials on Photoshop or GIMP or any other photo editing software, or just pay/ask someone which knows what he is doing to help you.

The flag of Yugoslavia is older than communist Yugoslavia. It was adopted in 1918, and pan-slavic colors are even older than that. The concerns about communism and gulag don't make much sense, it is far from the first thing one thinks about when seeing an old blue-white-red tricolor.

It is somewhat generic however, so we'd recommend revising it anyway.

If you wish, I can try designing a new flag to your specifications.

An Important Changes

If a nation chooses to change my flag, then they have to/can design me a flag in the next forum later.

Agree?

But why?

Since, some nations might have choose the first option most from the two reasons :- 1. By reading the reasons given by The Candesian Ministry Of Flag And Banner, 2. By looking at the majority, he/she might have preferred to go to it, 3. By thinking and examining my flag (which is important for me). So, I would like to test that thing.

I could make you an flag updated flag if that is what you are asking. Do you want a simple vector or a complex raster flag?

NOTICE :

Since, no new voters viewing the thread of changing Candesian flag, and additionally, the vote of suggesting to change flag is higher than ever; therefore, the Governor decided to change the flag of Candesia. Deciding anything before the completion of poll seems illegal. But due to the less patience, the flag is changed.

Nice flag, Candesia! I actually think it looks really nice and is much better and more original than the old one.

Yeah! Here blue depicts peace, protective. And red is for war, brave and aggressive.
Red is at the bottom, which means war will be later. First, be peacefully.
And 6 stars each for two colors depicts cities, which will be later mentioned. And flower like shape in the middle of the flag symbolizes compassion and many things, which will be mentioned later.

Also, doesn't it looks like the mixture of Chinese Communist Flag and European Union Flag? Just notice that.

I have to say, when I first saw it that's not the place where my mind went. It's a nice flag and it has a very original vibe to it, it's not a copy of China or the EU.

What are the official colours? I might be able to turn that into a pixel-free SVG.

Also, the existing custom flag gets deleted after you replace it. For those looking for the old flag, the Archive snapshot is at: https://web.archive.org/web/20230601075 ... 181270.png – it is probably not a good idea to hotlink to that image because the Wayback Machine is not an image host, but a record of the internet in the past.
