lolcommies Flag Contest

We over in commie land seem to have a problem, no I’m not talking about our “re-education spas” or the horrific state that FC left the General Commissars office in (we still don’t know what those stains are. It is instead a more important issue, that of our flag. We created a committee to design a new flag, however all they did in 3 months was to create 20 more committees and order a lot of pizza, which itself required a committee to decide on toppings.

As such we have decided to go with the tried and tested method of letting the public do the work in exchange for a prize. I was thinking 3 mil and 100 tec but if this is considered crappy then I can negotiate.

This is our current flag:

The new flag must include red and yellow and be appropriate for a leftist alliance. H&S can be used but we would prefer something more original. I will leave this open for 3 days, or longer if the response is underwhelming. After this we will vote on which flag (if any) we like, and the winner shall be announced in this thread.

That is everything I believe, if you have anymore questions please feel free to ask.

I like your flag as it is D:

The main problem is we got no clean version of it, just this wavy version. This means making propaganda is damn annoying. Also the sun doesn't look very good when used as a logo.

Old school people from The International should know this flag, and if the wavy effect or colors(may be a orange background to fit your currently sphere?) is a problem I can fix it.

Good old SE flag, takes me back. When INT first started many wanted to use this flag for the new alliance, but the idea didn't seem to get off the ground.

I am really bored so I made an attempt, I wanted to get away from the hammer & sickle theme and go for a socialist themed .

I don't think any alliance would want such a pixelated flag. No offence.

That can be fixed by anyone with a good hand at vectors. I would think the concept is more important at the moment.

Hahaha I remember this. :awesome:

inb4 a 17 page discussion on the flag comes up, 3 different votes start, and the SG flag remains. :D



Edit: The -SE- flag that Death made is fantastic.

War time flag.


The Cog and Grain represent the cooperation between industrial and agrarian workers. The Red background represents the leftist movement as a whole and the star represents INT as the most prominent mainstream leftist alliance on CN.

You are welcome :smug:

I converted it to a vector image by hand by myself. I hope it is more acceptable. (it took me 3 hours to learn how)

EDIT- SVG version available on the wiki now (Thanks Locke).[url="http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/cybernations/images/7/75/ITL_Flag_Contest_PMJ_entry.svg"]link[/url]

You've got a little error on the first right-inside leaf, but other than that looks good. You can upload SVG's to the CN wiki and they can be retrieved as an SVG or as any sized PNG. For example, [url="http://cybernations.wikia.com/wiki/File:Flag_of_the_New_Pacific_Order.svg"]NPO's flag[/url] can be retrieved as an SVG from the link right under the image, or as different sized PNG's from the links under that. There are a few presets, but by editing the URL you can get any size you like, by changing the section at the end: [url="http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100428021749/cybernations/images/thumb/5/50/Flag_of_the_New_Pacific_Order.svg/500px-Flag_of_the_New_Pacific_Order.svg.png"][b][i]500px[/i][/b]-Flag_of_the_New_Pacific_Order.svg.png[/url] Name the file something like "INT Contest Entry" rather than "INT Flag" when uploading to avoid confusion.

Inb4 everyone in INT likes these better, but INT keeps the old flag because none of the variants on this idea get the required super-majority :P

The cog and grain motif is a direct rip-off from the Communist Party of Canada's logo. Some may think it's a nice image -- I happen to think it's uninspired --but I would think originality would be more important. Besides, some defunct alliance has already ripped off the CPC's logo. (At least....I think the alliance is defunct.)

Then again, the current flag is just godawful. Maybe copying an already-existing design wouldn't be such a bad idea. I dunno.

I made quite a few of these back when INT was talking about this last time :awesome:


Also Ashoka I find your criticism uninspired and rip-off of other people's opinions. Also your ideas deserve to be defunct and you are just godawful.



Edit: Also obviously available: PSD files, Non-wavy versions, etc. etc. also you can totally make the Cog&Grain you official symbol like I suggested last time when you were all being stupid.
