I will be using one to display my election backstory. Perhaps some of you are interested in using it as well.
Besides parliamentary affairs, you could also use it to show yes vs no votes in your own governments.
For those who want a unique flag for their nation, province or city.
Tool 1: Scrontch's Flag Designer (Appspot)
This easy to understand flag designer is one of the first ways to get started. You'll notice this style all over the place. The colour palette is limited yet effective. Buttons show what each action represents. Your flag will be exported as an SVG file.
Tool 2: FlagMaker Jr. (Github)
A slightly more advanced flag maker. You can select more colours. And there are many more shapes to choose and combine. Your flag will be exported as an SVG file.
Via someone's else NS Twitter account, I discovered this fun political simulator on filteries.com.
The Filteries political simulator has loads of sliders and options and graphs for you to play around with.
Based on your choices, you end up with a different kind of government, from United States analogue to communist utopia to raw fascism.
I had a go at it for 5 minutes, and this is what it looks like. This is related to the 8 values political test, but with much more detailed results.
You can try it here: http://filteries.com/politics It also pops up on Reddit every now and then.
