Which Flag?

Recommended Posts

So, I'm trying to find out which flag looks better, my old one, or my redesigned version.

My Old Flag

My Redesigned Version

I quite like the new version. While it is more traditional for sure, it also feels more modern in a lot of ways.

I like the second one personally but I'm always a sucker for tricolours. My only critique is both seem a little busy and if it were me I'd just keep the lion and stars, if not just the lion. I agree with @SamNorththat the second one seems traditional and modern at the same time - I guess you could say it might be timeless ;) Either way, both are nice flags!

I'm glad you've brought it up Tag, about that...

SSI and Metzli walk in and sit in a circle with us. It is time we have an intervention. Your flag... it's a vexillogical nightmare.

I kinda wanna use a Dutch redesign flag.

That could be interesting depending which way you go with it. I'm interested to see it!

It was done as a favour by someone else.

I think some people did recently-ish propose redesigns. I wouldn't be adverse to it but I'm also fine with what I have.

East Flanders-style, with a touch of old Dutch (very small):

Go for the original redesign (Tricolour). The original is an “eh”/10 and this second redesign feels generic. The first redesign feels special and unique and screams “I have my place and I am my own me.”

However, be aware that the laurel and lion used are very commonly used symbols on fictional nations flags. I recommend switching them out for more unorthodox designs or tracing them and adding your own flare to them.

What would you suggest in that situation?

A mythical beast of some sort? A lot of those are quite common, too.

I'm also going to move this thread yo the Art Gallery subforum.

The same symbols can work, just edited so they're not the exact same ones everyone else uses on their flags. I'm not opposed to the laurel and lion. Just those two exact images the one Aurora are using are commonly used on other flags.
