China

A hypothetical flag for China (PRC) if it ever decides to be free of itself. A solid block of red at the hoist, a solid block of blue on the fly, the whole flag charged with a Chinese dragon in the negative space between hoist and fly. Red for luck, blue for perpetuity, white for age (negative space to the rescue!), China being the oldest unified nation still in existence (though it has gone through some changes in government in the last century or so). Not a flag for Taiwan, probably, Taiwan gets it's own flag later (when I get around to making it). An earlier version of this flag accidentally looked exactly like Ecuador's so I had to change it, and Ecuador's flag is beautiful, I've noticed.

Would I be able to use this for a project of mine? You'd get full credit, as you deserve.

Awesome design for proposed flag. But I also love the "Five Races under One Union" five-colour flag.

Very nice flag!

Although for some reason, I see this as the flag of the fictional nation of Kyrat from Far Cry 4.

I have a feeling the conversation on making this the flag would have went something like.

Amazing. I wish I were that talented. If it isn't blocked I hope some rebels come across it.

I want this to become a reality! This flag is too cool. I also like that you made the Manchurian dragon a white silhouette, the simplistic take fits with modern flags.

Really neat design. Personally I'd change the red to orange though, to avoid the resemblance to sports logos

Perhaps. I hadn't thought of that before. But why orange?

I meant to say yellow, because yellow was the colour of the Chinese Imperials

Not bad, but, I don't mean to hurt you, but you shouldn't trouble yourself to make another flag  for Taiwan, in my personal opinion the previous flag of Taiwan with the golden tiger, before the japanese occupation and the period under the ROC(Republic of China), it's definetely the best!!!

The flag you're speaking of is the flag of Formosa, the native peoples of Taiwan. Formosa and Taiwan aren't really the same thing, think of the United States and Native Maeric a tribes. They may live on the same land but their government, culture and history are very different.

A better, abit unoriginal, solution to Taiwan's sovereignty would be to replace the sun icon with the lotus, the traditional symbol of Taiwan before the ROC occupation.

I guess you are right....it doesn't make much sense, thus I liked the Formosa flag, however I think that for your comment, you maybe didn't see the previous link of DeathPwnie in the comment below, I think that his Taiwan alternative flag may fit with your criteria, don't you agreed ?

I already made a flag for Taiwan a long time ago, but I don't really like it anymore. deathpwnie.deviantart.com/art/…

I think the golden tiger is a good symbol, but it doesn't really work as a flag. Maybe I'll make another Taiwan flag with an updated golden tiger.

Nice, but remember the Chinese generally hate the Qing. Many even refuse to acknowledge it being Chinese.

I expect the Mao Dynasty will be equally denied in a century or so.

Nah a century is too long. It's ideological disloyalty will have it down in fifty years at least and then the Kuomintang and their government and symbols shall return.
