    Hi graphic designer peeps. I am hopeless at this stuff so I come to you bearing cookies and begging for help.

    Two requests: flag update and sig.

    I like my flag and the colours, but I snagged it from somewhere online. If you click on the flag in my sig you will see the full image without that silly photobucket watermark. I would like a similar flag but I am thinking maybe vertical instead of horizontal - thoughts?

    Sig: I am a big fan of Coro's (Jyskerige-Østveg">@Jyskerige-Østveg ) style of sigs. Could it please contain the new flag and the three following images blended together?
    Text in sig (Dutch being a bit larger/bolder than the English): Het Gemenebest van Nedernesië / The Commonwealth of Nedernesia
    Even smaller text near bottom perhaps: Start your business and new life in Nedernesia - where the world meets opportunity

    I know that is a lot to stick in a sig. So if it is too cramped, cut the nature pic.

    Thanks and let me know if you have questions!

    Hi Drei, as a native speaker and a fellow Netherlandish nation I kindly want to mention you could drop the 'van' in the Dutch translation. Grammatically 'Gemenebest Nedernesië' is the correct translation of 'Commonwealth of Nedernesia'. I believe in German you would use the term 'Gemeinschaft' or 'Gemeinwesen'. Compare 'Bundesrepublik Deutschland' or 'Königreich Belgien' for the Federal Republic of Germany and the Kingdom of Belgium. The same applies to Dutch, where you would say 'Bondsrepubliek Duitsland' and 'Koninkrijk België'. =)

    I would like to request a signature from someone with design skills and taste. The Gunnish flag, as you probably know, is a boring white Nordic cross on a blue field. The imperial flag, as you would not know, will be a black Nordic cross on a white field, like the Teutonic Order IRL. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_the_Teutonic_Order

    The coat of arms of the empire, which my avatar and Elben's bears, is from the same https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipe...ic_GM_Arms.svg/800px-Teutonic_GM_Arms.svg.png

    Signature stuff could overlay that with stereotypical Scottish stuff. Sheep, highlands, kilts, I don't know.

    But I'd like the text to read Regnum Marpesiae
    and in smaller font Sacrum Imperium Tiburis;

    What symbol are you wanting on the flag? After that is figured out it’ll be easier to look into a signature... but it’s worth noting I make a slightly different style of banner these days. It’s more “Scandinavian Chic” as I’ve changed as an artist over the years.

    You really do sound like an artist haha.

    I kind of like the crane. If you can't work with that, maybe another variation of a crane, or the shapes of a sail from a boat, sleek and modern looking.

    I could also use a coat of arms / seal for my official comunications, pretty please.

    Perhaps a mix of sailboat/sails, crane (bird), serpents, etc. I'm not very creative when it comes to this stuff, so honestly if you make something cool looking, I'll probably love it.

    Also here I would suggest 'Kracht in diversiteit' instead of 'met'.

    Do you want that in a similar flag format or are you wanting an entirely new flag?
