No worries, though. The dimensions are wrong.

Question: if, hypothetically, I make a flag for a team other than my own, and it wins, whose team gets points?

I am the best flag designer ever. (Yes, that is a little monocle in his eye.)

I will have a higher-resolution version for my comrades. I have a plan.

Next, you're going to tell me that all flags have to be quadrangle.

Given that I'm neutral, it's only fitting that I make a flag like switzerland's, which is to say longer than normal. Deal with it.

Excellent! I've had my hands full with Exquisite Knorpse, but I'll probably post something of my own before the deadline.

Hey Guild, are you going to put your education to good use and whip up a killer flag?  If not, let us know so I can design something instead.

FOR MY ENTRY ON BEHALF OF NEWBIETOPIA, THE THIRD NATION

I DID AWAY WITH FLAGS AND RETURNED TO OUR PRIMAL ROOTS AS A NOMADIC BAND OF BROTHERS

AND SO I PRESENT THE NEWBIETOPIAN COAT OF ARMS, EMBLEM OF OUR TERTIARY LAND



THE SHIELD BECAUSE WE ARE IMPENETRABLE.
NO MAN MAY TAKE OUR LAND,
OUR HEARTS, OUR WILL.
WE ARE ONE AND TOGETHER WE STAND, UNBROKEN.

THE ANCHOR SYMBOLIZES OUR STEADFASTNESS.
NO WAVE CAN MOVE US, FOR WE ARE A ROCK.
NO WIND CAN BUDGE US, FOR WE ARE A MOUNTAIN.
WE ARE THOSE WHO NEVER RETREAT.

THE CROWN SHOWS OUR NOBLE BLOOD:
IT IS THE BLOOD OF OUR ROYAL ANCESTORS,
THE VERY FOUNDERS OF NEWBIETOPIA.
WE ARE THE FINEST OF ALL HUMANS.

THE UNICORN EMBODIES OUR PURE HEARTS,
AND THE GOODWILL THAT WE SPREAD AMONG MEN.
NO OTHER COUNTRY COULD BE SO BEAUTIFUL.
WE ARE UNBLIGHTED AND UNCORRUPTED.

THE DACHSHUND IS THE ICON OF WHEN WE JUMP AROUND, AND ARE YIPPY
AND OF WHEN WE CAN'T WALK VERY WELL BECAUSE
WE ARE SO, SO FAT. AND OUR LEGS--
WE HAVE VERY SHORT LEGS.

FINALLY, THE WREATH IS SOME PARSLEY I PUT FOOD COLORING ON.
BECAUSE PARSLEY IS A GOOD GARNISH,
BUT SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO SHAKE IT UP A LITTLE.
WE LIKE TO KEEP IT FRESH, YOU KNOW.

Probably true.

I cannot sit by while only two of my countrymen are submitting flags--I must be the third.



A blue background, symbolizing our inherited responsibility from the Newbietopian nations of yore. A broad white stripe with green epaulettes signifies the strength of our nation and the breadth of our experience; the saltire of moles suggests our unifying heritage of games and digital entertainment. The central mole's red coloration naturally indicates that we are third. Finally, the colors echo the Olympic colors--but substituting white for yellow, because our nation is not grounded on the yellow earth, but on the white-space of the Internet. Also these are the colors of Magic, and our nation will probably come in third in that.

I'll be locking this thread and denying any entries at 11:59 PM, Eastern Time, My Computer Clock.

That means you have 10 hours to submit flags.

Oh, uh, I guess I should explain the symbols on my flags too.



The man in the centre is dressed smartly, as all Newbietopians are known for, however he carries an assault rifle and shield, showing that we're prepared to get our hands dirty.

His shield has three Argent (white) eagles on a Gules (red) field. Eagles for courage, Argent for purity and Gules for the blood of our enemies.

The dapper fellow is surrounded by a ring of laurel leaves which honours Apollo, god of poetry, patron of the Pythian Games, and also shows our love of savoury dishes.

The field of old gold indicates our academic superiority, while the sky blue says we're flying high.



Fairly similar to the last one, except this one has three flies on it. Flies are adaptable and all-seeing, not to mention the bringers of death. When our enemies see this flag they'll know the end is near. We may be nuisances, but we'll outlast you!

Three is the noblest of numbers, as any Pythagorean will tell you.



Almost identical to the first, except for the scrolls, upon which are printed:

Chowderhead

Woop Woop Woop Woop Woop

The meaning of these words is lost to history.
