A new country has formed and you live there (ok, we will just say your state broke away or whatever). You are asked to design the new countries flag. Can you describe your creation and it’s colors and what it means?

Yellow flag with a red number 1. This is to let all know I am a dictator and there will be no swamps.

All blue with stars and diagonal lines going through the corners of the flag. A circle connecting the lines.

Probably green for the forest and blue for the ocean. And the word freedom somewhere.

I would purposely not use any of the colors used in the Olympics rings, just to mess with them. The colors of the Olympics rings were chosen because at least one of those colors appears in every nation's flag.

Lol....I don’t know why but that’s kind of funny.

Yes. It has a purple background. In the center is the heart as represented by a white pine tree which is connected to four white boxes- two on each side. The connecting lines run off the flag appearing as though they might connect to other boxes.

The five items represent the original 5 great nations of the federation and the connecting lines represent the connecting path that the constitution refers to. Why a white pine tree? Because that is where the 5 original nations put down their weapons of war and met with each other for peace.

That is the flag of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. No need for me to create a new one ☺️

Already did it, sort of. Seeing as though Michigan's flag is as boring as drying paint...I took a complete 180 and based it off of Venice's Flag as we're both territories closely associated with the waters that surround us.

Here it is. Can't remember what the whole three eagles and flowers are for on the shield. Probably Cherry Blossoms and America's Legacy, I guess. The Fleur De Lys are definitely inspired by our heritage and foundations.

I got bored once so I actually created my own flag for Wisconsin. The blue is for the over 15,000 lakes in the state including Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. The white is for the snow and cold weather. There’s a badger in the center because we’re the badger state. Finally there’s a star in the corner to represent our spot on the us flag.

I could design a flag for Illinois but I’m not sure how to symbolize rampant corruption lol

The primary colors would probably be blue (for the ocean) and green (for the mountains). Otherwise it would be more intricate. I’m pretty artsy so I’d overthink it! MA has a lot of history and I’d want to represent it somehow to show where we came from and who we are as a state/nation (in the scenario).

I’m sure you’ll get to someday. I’m biased of course but Boston is a place which everyone should visit. Even aside from the history there are places like the aquarium and public garden (which is great when the flowers are in bloom... you always see a wedding or two there on weekends in the spring) which are enjoyable. If you like the ocean I’d also recommend a whale watch. Duck tours are kind of fun too if that’s your thing.

If CA broke away there would probably be a rainbow, pot leaf, and socialist sign on it added... and it would cost a lot.

How...uncreative.

I'd call it Delomar.
It's an island nation.
The flag has the lower third in blue (the ocean), a sun with rays beaming down on a stylized island with the cartoonish single palm tree, and a two headed arrow above it which stands for two people standing back to back with spears pointing outward symbolizing defense against any invader.

What color is the sky? The blues would probably blend a bit much with the sea below.

Nevermind, I got it. Wrong blues. Here's a potential flag for Delomar.

Light blue flag. Green stripe (for the earth). Dark blue stripe (for water) and a black stripe (to represent all people and all creatures). Red stripe (for justice)
