    Part of the reason that flag looks weird is because you're using a pure 255.0.0 red, which no (respectable) Communist country really did:

    Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: 204.0.0
    People's Republic of China: 222.41.16
    Socialist Republic of Vietnam: 218.37.29
    Democratic People's Republic of North Korea: 237.28.39
    Socialist People's Republic of Albania: 206.17.38

    The font looks too cheery because you're using lower-case. The "E" should be small-caps and the rest in all-caps. I'm not sure what font that is, but something that's far closer to the original Brazilian flag would be Helvetica or Helvetica Neue, in bold.

    Can anyone make a communist Japanese flag?

    Possibly like this but larger with a hammer and sickle/what have you? Think Japanese nationalism with a communist tint. For INES.

    Simple, but effective I reckon.

    The Original Flag of Bekwa was a simple off-white sheet of virgin cloth, to be replaced once sullied. However, they don't understand the giggles and chortles of other groups they meet: Their white flag is perfectly fine and waves proudly in the sky!












    Thus, they commissioned a new flag based on various designs they have scavenged as well as distinctive elements of their own.

    What happened to Quebec's name Terrance, and why are they sullying their flag with symbols of Anglo oppression? :p

    Could I use this as a standard for the American Royal Guard?

    They ran out of cloth, so they had to improvise, Iggy. Besides, both the Axe and the French Bread make great post-apocalypse weapons! One shot with them (especially the French Bread) can knock down any respectable Ghoul.

    As if the French would let their bread get stale. Insulting.

    They would get stale after hiding for a few decades in an abandoned cellar. (if you want to argue about the flag, to the WWW. this is my choice: I don't want a pure Quebec flag or a pure Canadian flag.)

    It's an impossibly heraldically incorrect flag. You can't put colours on metals or metals on colours; red and blue are both colours. Equally, the axe and the French bread are proper, which is very unusual on flags.

    Anyone have an interesting flag that would represent an alliance of Communist, and otherwise Socialist nations? Essentially Comintern.. though, I feel that, that as an alliance is greatly overused.

    Hmm, I really like the second one :)

    If you are making Royal flags for America, I'm using a flag like this now if you might want to fool around with it :)
