    Actually... "must" is pretty clear, the insignia / identifiers are not optional.

    However, Korrigan, you could just use failry simple flags somehow. Most real-world flags are very simple and abstract. However, you'll want to read up on the basics of heraldry / flag design first, as not all colors are used in maps and there are certain standard shapes and layouts. (Your world may have different rules, but it's still a good idea to get familiar with the basics if you don't know them already.) Wikipedia should have all the information needed.

    Don't worry about that, I read a lot about heraldry some times ago

    The question here was mainly : are color codes considered political identifiers or not. I guess the answer is no, so I'll work on something more "graphic" ^^

    EDIT : by the way, wikipedia doesn't have a lot about precise heraldry rules. If I have some time I'll translate a very good french site about it, which could interest some of you

    Yeah - go for it. Theres a few sticky posts in the current challenge topic. One is the rules and general info and other is the thumbnails which I do so have a quicky look at that too. If you look a few posts up from here to #18 then thats the list I build for the entrants and the thumbnail script makes the thumbnail page which is also stickied in the current challenge topic. So when you have your entry thread ill add you to that list and when you post a WIP image then put a little ### Latest WIP ### tag at the end of your post and the script will look at your thread and grab the latest image and put it into the thumbnails page. Its a manual run so it wont appear instantly in the thumbs but it will get there when I next run it... eventually...

    I have thought a little out of focus of the competition.
    Perhaps this was only an impression.
