    to be honest, i haven't made a map for this yet - it hasn't been until the last month or so that I've felt I had the skill to attempt this. I really want it to be special when I do


    This reminds me so much of one of my party flags from particracy.

    I like Rythal's flag okay, but it would be better with less jpeg artifacting.

    What tools do folks use for convexillology? I mostly use inkscape, 'cause a lot of the available vector images of flags on the net are in svg and illustrator often does bad things to svg.

    I steal a lot of elements from existing flags. I also found the Red Bull icon on wikipedia and used that once.

    For my entry in a Challenge last year, I had to make a whole bunch of flags:

    The "Occital Nations" were altered European powers, so I at least had a guideline on those flags, but I worked up the rest in a few hours. Looking at it again, it's pretty clear that I overused the "white figure on coloured background"; in my defense, though, I was trying to make them simpler.

    For our D&D campaign, we let our players make up their own flags for their groups (heralds i suppose). Hubby hasn't asked me to come up with any flags otherwise.
    I used Old Guys Realistic Coastline Tutorial modified for PSPx3.
    How's It Looking? - Please provide me with your input.

    Here are two old ones I picked up off the internet (I neglected to keep a lot of my older images when I upgraded to Windows 7 x64), the second one is a seal. They were used in conjunction with fictional states that were created in Simcity 4.

    Default This is a cool thread

    Here are a couple flags ive prototyped for Paidixira. These will either bee shipping company flags or country flags; it's up in the air. what I will say is that in general, designing flags really tickles the storycrafter in me. I always want to think of a flag around a story for the state, so every one can be either unique or aptly influenced.

    It's not "my" map-making project, but i did make some maps and flags for the open-source game project UFO:AI. The following are my favorite 6.

    I've designed many, many flags.

    Some of my personal favorites:
