    Some of you guys love to make flags. I’m looking for a flag for Pays-Petites, or Smålandarna. It needs to embrace aspects that are French, potentially even Swiss French, while perhaps even adopting something Scandinavian if possible. That said, the French aspect triumphs over the Scandinavian if you struggle to come up with a good design. Another aspect to consider is a Huguenot angle, but that isn’t absolutely important. I’d love to have a collection of flags to choose from.

    Likewise, I’m looking for a flag that will represent my Estonian province known currently as Finner og Isørerne. A name that will change once it changes political status later this month. It should more readily adapt Nordic flag trends, but also be relatable to RL Estonia and maybe even symbols from in game Virumaa.

    Much like the diplomatic seals that bless Engellex, Beautancus, Natal, Auraria, and many others, I’m looking for a unique Coat of Arms for Jyskerige, a unique Coat of Arms for Østveg, and then a Coat of Arms that combines the two. Of course you might think I could make these things myself, but I haven’t a computer with Photoshop with me very often and frankly just don’t have the time between RP and writing my research proposals. So... I’m asking to see if anyone would like to try. Fear not, every proposal I will use, so nothing will go to waste... but I may use it for another purpose if I’m not particularly pleased with something about it.

    What am I looking for? Something that captures Scandinavia. Griffin heads, lions, moose, there are a lot of symbols in Scandinavia. I’ve utilized hearts in my current one, that’s also acceptable to use for Jyskerige if you feel it would be nice. For Østveg I grant you a bit more freedom. Trolls, giants or elves are even acceptable ideas. Let yourself wander if you’d like.

    Perfect! That’ll be used for Pays-Petites!

    As for the coat of arms, the lesser is most important because the government will use that far more, while only the Monarch will use the greater... so it’s a bit up to you on how you’d like to handle it?

    Perhaps? I suggest giving some guidance on what you’re imagining, because people don’t want to waste their efforts on things you don’t want.

    Navy blue background. White cross centered (just like my current flag). Golden Fleur de Lis coat of arms in the center. French Imperial Eagle atop it. Crown atop that.

    I am in your debt sir. Thank you. Salen is it possible to resize the coat of arms to make it smaller?

    There you go: https://i.postimg.cc/tCKCkWz8/Just-Request3.png

    If still not suitable I advice you use a PDF-reader or a simple paint or preview program to resize it, it's not hard and multiple options are available (and free).

    Tried something. Your shields can incorporate griffin heads if your monarch's name has been changed to Peter Griffin, you at least owe me that. =p Again, these are thumbnails so click them for full-view images.

    Quite nice! I’m not sure too many changes are actually needed. Something I think that bothers me is the color of the brown griffins and the color of the green lion... perhaps the usage of blue for the lion? As for the griffins, maybe the green would be nicer there? Although I’m a bit skeptical of the green there too...
