    83 KB Flag-making !vDcyU1BJg2 01/30/12(Mon)19:17 No.17740772  
    Good evening Elegan/tg/entlemen.

    Because I am bored and have nothing better to do, I offer to make you some HD flags for whatever you need.

    Keep in mind though the following things:
    1. The more details you request = The longer it will take to make the flag.
    2. I can't read minds, so the more specific requests the better.
    3. If you request a real world flag (say: Stars and Stripes, Union Jack, Dannebrog, Tricolore etc. etc.) you will receive a link to it on Wikimedia Commons.

    Additionally, but not a must:
    4. If it is for a fantasy nation, a piece of fluff regarding the nation's politics and ideology would be appreciated.

    It's a tyrannical communist country run by an ancient Norse race. It's mostly mountains and yields very little crop.

    Flag would be cool to be green with a circle then a Norse god lookng person in the circle.
    Thanks much

    I'll get working on it, though I may end up using Mjolnir (Thor's hammer) instead because otherwise we will risk it looking stupid (e.g copy-pasting Thor or Ordin in to a flag), I hope that is acceptable.

    I hope this works, though I did have to end up using Mjolnir rather than say Thor, Odin or Loki.

    I think anyone with half a knowledge about the Aser-belief would agree that Mjolnir is a pretty bad-ass symbol since it represents one of the most badass gods.

    On a side note, if you are using a Norse-inspired civilisation, why not look for some flag inspiration in the Nordic-Cross style flags or the Raven Banner.

    The Armed Federatin of Xenohumanity.
    A Future-Tech plutocracy / autocracy with an obsession with genetic purity and anti-religious thought. The flag here, ripped from Galactic Civilizations, is what I have been using. Seeing as it is very pixelated and I have been mocked for it, a flag-maker like you is just what I would like. Simply make a higher-resolution version of the flag attached and it would work. If you have any questions, simply ask.

    I don't have a name for it yet, but...

    basically, the middle east was attacked by aliens who, instead of wiping them out came down and forced to them to "civilize" (to use the aliens' terms)
    when the world united to fight the insectoids off the Earth, ME was left with a whole lot of alien infrastructure and was suddenly way ahead of the game technologically

    i have no *idea* what i want their flag to look like. i was thinking some generic Arab stuff (crescent moon, curved swords, palm leaves) but i have nothing solid in mind. go nuts

    the modern day nations that make up this place would be the middles east, the asian countries from the former Soviet Union (aka the "-istan" countries) and parts of north africa

    basically a setting where the aliens had a huge beef with religion and decided to start with islam
    this country is rather progressive but also likes to hint towards the old Arab ways. the aliens also wiped both Mecca and Jerusalem off the map, so maybe a memorial to that in some way.

    Well you know, my DM has a fantasy dark ages game where the Germanics settled in modern France and all that, and then when the Roman Empire fell apart they founded a new quasi Roman state with Germanic runes and symbols and such added to the flags and banners.

    Don't know much besides that.

    Aha, considering the fuþark and all that jazz...

    My best idea is a combination of the aforementioned Raven Banner and a Faggot, but how exactly I don't know, usually I base the flags I invent myself on modern flags and add ideologies that aren't fitting.

    Also if you by "faggot" think I mean a flaming homosexual, then think twice.

    And here I have no idea what to do, sorry.

    I took the original picture from it, seeing as it was my favorite Custom Flag, and went from there. This new one is going on the letterhead I'll use on the hard-copy PC mission briefings I'm printing out, as the players are going to be foreign mercenaries in the employ of the Federation going off to fight 'gene pollution' (political dissidents).

    It's for an AdEva game. A terrorist organization who formed during the chaos following a week long blackout of the sun. They proclaim to be extremist eco-Christian terrorists who claim the sun was God's way of showing us we done fucked up.

    Hey, flaganon, can you please create a version of this Chilean imperial alt-history flag (the flag of an Bonapartist type monarchy created in Chile by one general Cesar Roseno, Emperor Cesar Ist after his coup) that cuts out the blue badge in the upper-left corner and just has the emblem big and in the center, with a solid blue color backdrop within the shield instead of the current half red half blue. I'd really appreciate it.

    I jest, I jest. Seeing as you likely have programs that are out of my price-range for this, you are the only one in the position to make more.

    Speaking of which, I have another request. For a Dragonborn Clanship that has Arabic/Scottish influences, I would like a flag with a dark green background, a white X crossing the corners (as on the Scottish Flag), and four red swords extending up, down, left, and right from the center, in the style of a map compass.

    You can put this near the bottom of your build queue, so you get your other requests done. Awesome work, all in all, and I wish you the best.

    I might as well throw my idea out there.

    The flag/logo us/our characters have come up with for their group is as follows:
    A skeletal hand flipping the bird and a pair of crossed railroad tracks arranged like a skull and crossbones, the entire thing wreathed in flame.

    I need a flag for an Elvish town/homeland in a homebrew campaign setting. So I'll describe it a bit and let you do your magic:

    The elves, who are pretty much Nazi Germany. When the pantheon was wiped, a trickster god/demon came into power offering the Elves a different story of how they came into existence. Now elves believe they are basically a larval or pupal stage of angels, and in order for them to transcend their mortal chains, they have to sacrifice the souls of other mortals in a ritual to their new god. Ultimately this gives them a template, however, costs a fuckton of souls. In essence this has caused them to round up "lesser" beings into work camps and after they have fulfilled their use, sacrifice them in order to ascend. That being said, they have extreme caste systems/clans (with preference given to the default racial traits/lightbringer elves as those are more "exemplary" of their angelic heritage).

    To elaborate:

    >Inspiration/Thought Process:

    In short, its a poem that casts elves kinda like an impending death or grim reaper/banshee type character. By using a Nazi-Germany-esque ideal, they can portray that easily, in that poems like the one above could be seen as cautionary tales warning of an Elf's slaughter of other species.

    Now with regards to the flag there are only a few stipulations:

    No stereotypical nazi flag. Its overused.
    No large chunks of black. Once again, it gets overused with "evil" factions.
    Preferably less reliance on red.

    Remember we these guys see themselves the progeny of angels. It would be nice if their flag represented that viewpoint the most. To me that implies things as stars (particular in circular formations like the CSA Naval Jack in 1861). However, I leave this entirely up to your personal discretion based on the above fluff.

    A human empire that formed because it managed to beat back a horde that was destroying the continent. They were led by a hero-king. They held on to all the land they gained for many years before splitting apart into smaller factions. The heartland, however, is still very proud of their heritage as a human empire, which would be evident in their flag. Their palace in the capital was built upon an artificial island created by diverging a river that rejoined itself further on. They are also proud of this engineering feat.

    The ancient city was once home to legions of half-dragon half-human hybrids. They came from a union between a dragon lord and a human maiden during a time when humans and dragons clashed. This union ended a thousand year war, but only because the hybrids quickly realized their strength and built up a massive army to drive both of their ancestors to extinction. After succeeding in driving both humans and dragons from the entire continent, the hybrids built Sobalis, a massive city to serve as their capital and as a tribute to their strength.

    I was thinking a black flag with gold trim and a golden circle in the middle with wavy sun rays (similar to the shape of a kris blade) around it. The golden circle shouldn't be filled in. In the middle of the circle a red dragon head would be cool. I've included a rough draft so you have something to work with.

    Sorry, I copy/pasted it from my text file with all the technical terms for a coat of arms as expressed in a Song of Ice and Fire RP book.

    The Eagle atop the tower is the charge. The charge is the iconic symbol of the shield, like a rampant lion or dragon. The field is the background of the shield, with an ordinaire being a subset type of field and a bordure being a type of ordinaire. Basically, trying to explain it in appearance, it's like your typical looking shield, or in this case flag I suppose, with the main color being the center of it with a trim along the edges in the secondary color. In this case, the central will probably be silver, the Argent, because it'd look best with the charge I think, and the trim in green.

    I am terribly sorry, I should have just defined it first instead of copy/pasting and hoping you'd know.

    Here's a much better version, I think. Going to rename the Eaglespire that was the basis of the tower in the charge to Twineagle Spires. Could only afford one tower, so I'll just say it's rather rundown and undermanned, like the Night's Watch. Counts-as one tower until I can afford to 'repair' it by getting another tower.

    You also have no name, which is why I kept calling you anon. Would you prefer No Name?

    Don't worry; it doesn't make any heraldic sense either. The final version would be described as "Per pale vert and argent, in pale a two-headed eagle sable and a two-towered keep argent." (Assuming there aren't specialized vexillological terms that elude me.)

    I think what he was originally trying to ask for was a thick white border around a green field. Or possibly a thick green border around a white field. It's hard to say.

    (Yeah, I'm the "Sable, semy-de-corgi" guy; it would mean something like "like the Bourbon Restoration flag of France, but with a black background, and replacing all the fleurs-de-lis with corgis". Tongue-in-cheek, obviously.)

    I don't know a lot about heraldry terminology, I'd pretty much prefer if people ever only used plain English, but this is my first thread so it is not as much a problem yet.

    Geeze why do I arrive after people complain that I've left?

    I am using this flag for SPEHSS builder. Basically, my nation is an expansionist, technological muslim Mecca (hurr). My nation is at the forefront of robotic research, and loathes warfare.
    They're also quite fond of transhumanism (in accordance with Islam).
    I have terrible taste, though, so I have no idea how to represent it. I want something that distinctly says: "Arabesque, IN SPACE!", but am unsure as to how I should do that.

    Alright this is pretty much one of my (many) flag suggestions from a few years back when I was part of a group of 4channers planning to buy an island and make our own country, this was after we decided to formally break up with the chan-culture and thus meme-free.

    We were limited to 3 colours only so the star was white, an other version with an eagle (also submitted by me) in white instead of the star was the one that received the second most votes.

    Flags need to be instantly recognizable for what they are; the flags of newer nations might look cool, but they are terrible when it comes to aesthetics. Bold colors and easily distinguishable designs are key.

    A lot of the flags posted here are just too intricate to be effective flags.

    I agree, a friend of mine usually says that a flag needs to be simple enough that children can draw it.

    And if we look at it globally, most flags are Tricolore based flags, even in Europe we have the following: France (obviously), Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Ireland, Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Russia and others that I might have forgotten.

    Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Fareoe Islands all use the style called Nordic-cross.

    Scotland and some Irish flags use St. Andrews cross.

    Even Stars and Stripes has started a fashion which can be noticed on the flags of Malaysia and Liberia.

    But people come with requests - and whenever I like them or not I try to make them.

    Also a lot of State flags has the Coat of Arms on the flag, that is an alternative way of including a lot of detail in a small area without ruining the entire flag with meaningless jumble.

    I don't care if you call it a st. George Cross it's totally the same thing.

    But there ARE things like Royal Standards, ensigns, and assorted heraldry and "sub-flags" (Flags within flags) with quite complicated designs, and let's not even get started on the flags outside of Europe.

    Could... Could I get a flag for a newly independent planetary regime, preferably something symbolic, yet simple, akin to the Greenland flag? It'd also be nice if it contained a basic shape (Circle, triangle, square, you decide)

    Except that I don't know any other national flags that look like the English - perhaps Quebec, but that is still a province.

    There is a difference between the cross of Saint George, the cross of Saint Andrew and the Nordic-Cross when it regards flags. I don't care if you don't respect that difference, but I do.

    The point where the lines cross is moved an inch to the right.
    If I had to draw you a St. George's cross and a Nordic cross they'd turn out the same. (This is probably in relation with my inability to draw)

    St. Andrew's cross is hardly the same though, on that we, and non-blind people, can agree.

    I could argue further, but I have flags to make, but consider that all of the nations I mentioned using Nordic-Cross is part of the group called "Nordic Countries" and that England is not considered part of that group according to Wikipedia:

    Very well then, good sir. Here is my request.

    I request a flag based on the Barrett family crest. An example of the crest is shown here. Basically, there are three integral parts to this flag that I need you to include.

    1. The shield of interlocking red and white bands.
    2. The motto "Frangas non Flectes." Which translates roughly to "You may break me, but not bend me."
    3. I would like a clover incorporated somewhere in the flag. In the corner, in the background, it matters not. Surprise me.

    The rest of the details are up to you. A reasonable request? Thank you already for the services provided to others.

    >Sci-fi setting humanity, after it has rebuilt from near extinction
    Use Totalitarian symbolism along with cogs. Black, grey, dark red/green/blue.

    >Renaissance era secret society bent on preserving magic preventing growth of technology
    Royal Blue with golden symbols in ancient languages - possible fuþark, hieroglyffs or possibly kanji.

    >Monastic order focusing on fulfilling prophecies, with a Greek-ish theme
    Red Background, White Bird or Greek alphabeth as symbols. Alpha Omega?

    >Renaissance era corporation, like the East India Trading Company but with a greater focus on developing science
    Brown, Black, Grey, Red, Green, Cogs, Machinery, Ships.

    >A ragtag resistance of modern humans trying to overthrow powerful vampires that rule their country
    Cross. Colours are irrelevant. In fact they don't need flags. If they are rag tag chances are that flags won't help them.

    >An extremely magic gifted race that focuses almost entirely on personal power and selfish endeavors, little sense of nation, friendship or morality. Race has a lot to do with fire as an element
    Fire as a symbol, but that tends to look stupid on flags. Colours should be Red, Orange, Brown, Black and Yellow. Questionable if that race would even use flags.

    >An arabic coalition that is evolving from nomads and raiders to a cultured, static society
    Warm colours, a camel as symbol or possibly a water skin, a palm tree or a jackal

    What you asked for is a flag for a united Europe, currently this flag is the flag of the European Union AND the European Council thus it is the closest we have to a European flag present.

    Alternatively you mentioned it being because Germany went on war against everyone again, which has two possible outcomes:
    a. Germany wins and Europe then uses the German flag.
    b. Germany lose and we return to what it is like now (more or less).

    Either scenario: The flag already exist.

    I've got two if you're still taking requests:

    + A group of 7 medieval city-states that formed an alliance generations ago under the concept of rebelling against monarchy and imperialism. This alliance eventually became a union, and they are all but one nation now. Though the government claims to work for the people and that all are equal, in truth they rule through a combination of fear and propaganda. (So basically, a mishmash of the US and Stalinist Russia)

    + An elitist monarchy, whose claim to fame is shedding the yolk of their ruler's empire without assistance. A xenophobic place where income disparity is a simple black/white comparison. The measure of a man and his station in life are based entirely on how he traces his lineage to the first kings.

    Imperial France was during Napoleon, I will assume you mean Kingdom of France.

    The blue represents the heaven and the brown represents the soil where the mighty common man works.

    However the blue also represents the feeling that the royalty is constantly watching over the people, and the brown also stands for mud which proves difficulties for the workers.

    The plow was to represent working and the tasks of the common man.
