Flag Creation

Recommended Posts

I disagree about CSN's flag. This may be a problem with my eyesight, but it's kind of hard to see the features on the globe unless you're rather close up.

I think it would look better without the shine on the globe.

I'm afraid those stars are very hard to make out. The knife could be simplified rather than looking like a pencil drawing. Perhaps a white dagger outline on a brown background without a white stripe at all?

Hmm, well, that sounds like a good idea, but when making a flag, i'm stuck with bad MS paint skills. :awesome:

Out of curiosity.... this is my flag from my old &#33;@#&#036;%* nation... what do people think? Apart from the fact that it looks nart-zee, so I've been told <_<

Opinion?

It's a good banner, but too similar shades for a flag. Also looks a bit to photoshopped. And I stand by what I said earlier about thinking a 5 year old should be able to draw their own national flag.

Zhandra, looks good, although I don't know many 5 year olds who can draw a grenade :D

I think some of the finest flags ever designed couldn't be drawn by 5 year olds. Like these ones for example:

saudi-arabia-flag.jpg

I don't think it matters. If they don't understand the symbolism anyway. The NPO flag may be easy to draw, but how many kids would understand the principles of Francoism that the star represents for instance?

OOC: I got a massive warn increase for my last post... geez...

referring to OOC stuff or something :popcorn:

On the contrary, Zharanda, I would be surprised if a 5-year-old from whatever country that is [OOC: Saudi Arabia] couldn't draw that flag, if they could write. There's only letters and a sword.

CSN is pretty good. Get rid of the photoshop effects on the globe, though.

Grand Emperor Brian's is very interesting. The orange on brown is stark enough. The symbols inside the diamonds are maybe too complex, but it's ok because the diamonds are distinctive enough to be easily identifiable. A five year old would draw the diamonds and squiqqle inside each one, but you'd still know what flag s/he was drawing. It's not exactly textbook, but I think it's very effective and very attractive. The only thing I don't like is the two dark arrowheads/leaves above and below the main orange ones. They're both unnecessary and hard to distinguish. I'd ditch them and just go w/ the simple two tones of orange and brown. But all in all, this is an example of a flag that deviates a little, but does so successfully.

OOC: You might also want to use Liberia's national flag as a bad flag. Sometimes, having a flag too simple is bad.

OOC: Don't disrespect Liberia, it is a great country with and American Past. It was a country for freed slaves.

(P.S. I'm Liberian so shut up)

Relax man. We are not criticizing Liberia. We are not criticizing any nations for that matter. We are criticizing the design of flags.

The flag is decent. The colors do not pop enough for my liking but it is still better than most. Perhaps a more striking gold. Remove the lettering from that flag and never put it back again.

Do you see the red cross in my avatar? That is a deeper red. That is what I mean. Don't ask what color red it is because I have no idea.
