The standard of Her Holiness, Leona X, Abbess of Massilia and Matriarch of the West.

Known in antiquity as "Massilia", the city of Marseille on the French coast is home to the Matriarchate of Massilia, founded by the disciple Mary of Magdala, alongside her siblings, Martha Lazarus of Bethany (the Bishop of Massilia), after their ministry in the Roman province of... Provence. After her death, the apostolic succession was established in the city - only females could become Matriarchs, and were elected in the same manner as the Patriarchs of the Pentarchy.

The jar of ointment was brought by Mary Magdalene to Jesus’ tomb to anoint his dead body. The skull represents her presence at Golgotha, “The Place of the Skull”. (Her actual skull is kept in St. Maximin, France.) Both of these symbols are commonly shown beside Mary in classical art.

The nun’s habit has been worn by every Matriarch of Massilia since – supposedly – the reign of Magdalene herself. The seven fleur-de-lis represent the seven demons driven out of her body by Jesus Christ.

The standard of His Imperial Majesty Charles of House Bonaparte, By the Grace of God and the Constitutions of the Republic, Emperor of the Louisianans and of His other Peoples and Territories, Head of la Francophonie.

The honeybee is Louisiana’s state insect – and, as a symbol of the Bonapartes, I decided to add these to the background. The bees themselves were inspired by jewels found in the tomb of the pagan King Childeric I, one of the earliest sovereigns of France. (Of course, the jewels were probably meant to represent cicadas, a symbol of death and resurrection – but Napoleon wanted his bees! Oh well.)

Motto: Union, Justice, Confiance (French)
Lunyon, Jistis, Konfyans (Louisiana Creole)

Reminiscent of both current Australian and Australian Aborigines flags, and also the national Australian colors (green and gold). Although reminiscent of Aborigine flag, it doesn't included its colors, following the desire of many Australian native chiefs. The Commonwealth star still appear on Southern Cross, why duplicate it?

The flag of the Antillean Confederacy: a multilingual, wealthy, laicist great power in the Caribbean controlling most of the former Netherlands Antilles, British Virgin Islands and U.S. Virgin Islands along with a few other formerly British islands. It also controls the Turks and Caicos Islands, over which it warred for two and a half year with Bahamas, which was supported by Cuba and the Dominican Republic.

Because the current one's too cluttered, that's why!

Went to visit Belize earlier this summer - there were so many Mayan calendars being foisted on us, it might as well be their national symbol! (And imagine their space program - Mayans on the Moon~!)

Just like the flag for the European Federation, this flag is made for a future Australia the survived the third world war more or less unscathed. Fiction mates, all fiction.

Although I'd would like to see Australians' views on this flag, as I think I might even be used as a potential replacement for the current one.

"After WWIII Australia was emerged unscarred from the havoc that had wrecked the rest of the world. Their industries in ruin and their populations rioting, Australia was the one of the few stable countries after the great war, along with New Zealand, Fiji and a number of other Pacific island states. Australia used this to her advantage and quickly rose to superpower status, it's only rival being the newly formed European Federation."

The blue represents Australia's British heritage and it's history as a part of the now defunct British Commonwealth. Black stands for the dark times of the past and the oppression of the Aborigines. Red stands for all the lives lost in these dark times, such as the three world wars. Yellow represents the proud Australians as a people, as well as hope for the future and the indominatible determination of the Australian spirit.

The three colors together represent the night sky, the darkness of the night and the firm, red Australian ground. The yellow disk represent the Australians' standing firm on the ground, braving the darkness around them and guided by the stars (the Crux and Federaton Star). The Southern Cross represents the country's position on the globe as well as its shared heritage with the rest of the Pacific nations. The Federation Star represents Australia as one strong, united country. Together with the rest of the element of the flag, the stars are those which guide the people.

The flag is also meant to represent all the ethnicites of Australia, both Aboriginal and Eurasian.
