[OC] Flag of the West/Western World V
Trying to include text in my flags. A big no-no in vexillography, but I thought it was worth it.

Tricolor flag: red, white, blue, but with darker tones to symbolize age as well as struggle. The shape of the colors was meant to be easily identifiable when flying next to normal tricolors (purely vertical or horizontal). The torch of enlightenment is at the center representing liberty, with a text around it and two small laurels joining it. The text reads:

Facilius permissionem quam remissionem petere

Which is latin for: It's better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission. This sentence, I think, encapsulates most if not all of the western world's philosophy. At least at its present moment.

[OC] Cryptocurrency trading flag
Cryptocurrency symbol was created by Daniel Pfeifer (www.logo-designer.co/german-de…)

The bull and bear represent the two different financial market trends.

Colors combining the current color of bitcoin (orange) with the black of anarchism. Orange and black are also often associated with mutualism (economic theory).

Reimagining old flags, imagining new ones. As with everything else in life, learning takes mistakes, errors and trials in order to produce something beautiful. Out of all the flags here in display, I only consider a couple to be truly beautiful. But it is important not just to see the beauty in its final shape, but the mess from which it emerged. This is why previous attempts are displayed so you can see the evolution.

Hey
I was wondering if you could make an alternate flag for the province of Jujuy (Argentina) because It's awful

Olá vexilologia! (im talking portuguese because of you profile pic and name and works). Eu gosto muito dos teus trabalhos (gosto de tudo o que seja bandeira ou vector). Mas eu gostava de saber uma coisa (não é que eu precise): qual programa tu usas?

Very well made Flags! Surprised your profile isn't more popular.

Perhaps you'd be interested in re-doing City/Municipal Flags of Portugal?
Aside Lisbon (and Olivença... And Other Portu-Galician on the Spanish side) there are barely any good renditions of Flags of Portuguese towns - commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Cit…, be it either modern-day or colonial (like Bissau).

I could be able and interested in doing so. However I don't have the time to focus on them at the moment
