Help Me Decide…

Warning, the geek level in this post is off the charts.

Quite often when people play wargames, they create a fictitious country where the campaign takes place.  Some even go as far as creating elaborate backstories, armies, flags, etc for the country and even placed it on the world map.

For many years my go-to country name for fictitious battles has been “Malakastan”.  I have not gone as far as to dream up a backstory or a location or create an army for it ,,, but tonight i thought it would be fun to create a flag that I can hang in my game room.

Here are the two candidates that I’ve come up with.  As you can see, they are nearly identical but I’m stuck on the crown color.  I like the yellow, but wonder if it blends into the background too much.  Also is the red too much?  If so, what color would you use?

Which do you like?

#2 with White Crown

  1. I like the idea of creating a country. I was debating on doing the same thing. As for the flag, I think the second flag with the white crown is the better of the two choices.

    • T-14 Armata? Probably not. I’m thinking they are a smaller, less equipped nation in the “…stan” region that is being attacked by ISIS type forces and needs the help of US and coalition forces to save them from being overrun. So, basically it’s just another good excuse for me to run games where the US is fighting Russian and 3rd World hardware.

  2. Allen. Try the crown in yellow but a thicker black outline of the crown so it stands out more and does not blend into the yellow background. 😜

    • Tom, thanks for the input. I actually ended up going for a crown that is mostly black with a bit of yellow. I totally geeked out and ordered a flag online from Vistaprint and it should be here very soon. I’ll post a photo when it gets here.
