srsly

nu-zealand's flag is similarly terrible, and they're absolutely nuts for having rejected this amazingly good looking and unique design in their recent flag referendum


I'm actually not a fan of this. Maybe it's that there's too much negative space against the more intricate design. Maybe there's too much black. I'm not sure.

I like it but it does irritate me that the flag is way more rectangular than most

There are other flags with that aspect ratio, they're just always improperly represented

Latvia and Qatar are the first that comes to mind. I'm pretty sure there are others as well.

Quote from: Samus Aran on August 30, 2018, 09:41:19 PMtoo much black imo

maybe you'll prefer the actual final contestant in that referendum



imo they both look great, and are unquestionably better than nz's current unattractive lazy flag

but i still think the black variant of the fern is even better looking lol, although only slightly

it reminds me of the NBA and MLB logos ngl

Quote from: Detective Spatchcock on August 28, 2018, 02:10:16 AMHow about flags that break obvious design philosophies and still manage to look good?







Turkmenistan's is still hilariously complex though.

the design of maryland's flag is as erratic as the borders of the state itself, and yet somehow, yeah, that flag works

california's is also an enigma, it seems to break so many of the basic conventions of good vexillology and yet somehow manages to look great

i want to say that it would look even better with simplified bear and turf designs, but i'm not even sure that's true

i don't actually like turkmenistan's much though lol

belarus has a better execution on a roughly similar idea, i think



Quote from: Thyme on August 31, 2018, 04:27:47 PMit reminds me of the NBA and MLB logos ngl

i can see the similarity, but i don't think that's necessarily a bad thing lol

don't let's


YPrrrr

Until today I thought ngl meant "niggle"

And I only looked it up because I knew Thyme wouldnt say that
