These are 2 flags that I have designed: the Blue-Yellow one, anyone can use(the style is rarely used, i think only by Chechnya & the ill-fated Iraqi flag proposal); the Purple-Orange-Blue one is my family flag, so don't use it unless anyone is willing to give me some royalties for it :rolleyes:

I was thinking of a roundel for my WHIF-AF thread.  I don't know if anybody came up with this idea before, but what do you think?

That being said, I'd like to remind everybody in a manner reminiscent of the SNL bit on Julian Assange, that no matter how I die: It was murder (even if there was a suicide note or a video of me peacefully dying in my sleep); should I be framed for a criminal offense or disappear, you know to blame.

Fulcrum,

Do you have any additional ideas?

An alternate Pro-Soviet "Vichyist" French Democratic Republic marking & a alternate Slovak Socialist Republic marking(for a senario with Czecholoslovakia divided between a NATO-allied Czech Republic & a Warsaw Pact-allied Slovak Republic.

I have made this flag last night for a(another) fictional country.
The roundel for this flag is just a simple red diamond.

Thanks for sharing Bryan.  It's interesting to see the progression from one national symbol to another for a given country.  It does bring up the question why at times though.

Regards,

I have a couple of Imagi-nations in my wargames setting in Africa of the 70s - 90s

First Morvalonga - a former British colony that after a short rising made a democratic transition to independence.

The first Roundel was based on the RAF one with the nation's main resource (gold) as the central colour


The Second roundel was adopted when Bishop Moses Besqit was elected President for Life, Saviour of the Nation etc etc.  It was based on the Bishops own flag

The roundel substituted the Clerical purple for the blue.


The main enemy lies to the south the Islamic kingdom of Qaza'ar
The first Roundel adopted in 1928

The second roundel following the Islamic fundamentalist revolution of 1954

The current marking has dispensed with the circle to distinguish it from that of Morvalonga


To the North East lies the Coptic Christian Empire of Aqsopia
The first pattern adopted after the defeat of the Italian invaders in WW2

The second simplified pattern adopted for Army aircraft

The Imperial flight marking


When I print them soon the blue lines will disappear!  Just noticed them!

Gentlemen, I have a Flag... I am seeking possible roundels to go with it.  It's heavily based on Mozambique's flag, but the roundel is completely open for concepts.  So, here she is, the flag of the People's Republic of Khodahn.
