Mostly, I just take alchemy symbols and stick em on a rectangle and call it done. If I had some sort of project that was very near and dear to me then I'd put more thought into it.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

Flags....Hmmm....let me see if I have them 'handy'
Not only do i have a flag for my country:
but I have an entire economy, government, and so on: http://www.nationstates.net/nation=pq_forge
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

Not flags but I did sit down once years ago and pound out a bunch of Heraldry shields. I'll have to see if I can scan those in and start using some of them.
"Curious who of us has made a flag or flags for the countries we have shaped on our maps."
That is something I should get around to. Good post. Time to get flaggin'
Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go..
I made a whole bunch of flags for my now stagnant campaign setting... but I only have them as a powerpoint file which the board won't allow me to upload.

My Kingdom of Sam'thuma is a cross-continent neighbor of a2area's Torentine. Its constituent Principalities also have flags.
