I don't really have >BLOC original flags but this is a banner of fictional theocratic empire I designed for another game. The twelve points of the emblem are supposed to represent the 12 deities in the realm's pantheon. Yellow, red and white colours symbolize prosperity, divinity and purity respectively. The red and white parts surrounding the center also refer to the purity and faith being a defence against evils outside.

The Flag of The Republic

Divided We Stand, United We're Tall
Together We Rise, Higher than All

When Japan invaded China in World War 2, the invasion resulted in a Civil War, a war between Communism and Democracy. After aid from the United States, Democracy beat back Communism and named Their proud new nation the Republic, in Honor of Their freedom. They named themselves the Patriots.

Their flag consists of 3 colors; Blue, Red, and Gold. The Blue represents Freedom, Red represents the Patriots' Determination, and Gold Their Capitalist economy.

The Red cross shows that although We are different, we come together as a single People, people who put their Nation before Themselves. The Blue background shows that We value Freedom above all else. The Red triangles show that Determination will always be a piece of Our glorious Nation.

Finally, Our olive branch shows our peaceful intentions. The ring, our ability to unleash Carnage on anyone who threatens Our democracy. And Our lone Star, showing that We are independent of any Power. Long Live the Republic!

This flag was made by Native Americans and American colonists. The flag was made made to show unity apawn them. Then ironically the colonists attacked the natives right after making the flag.

Flag of the Socialist Republic of Alexandrastan

Story goes something like a community of Dobrujan Romanians moved somewhere in the Middle East during the times of the Ottoman Empire and grew since then. Flag is made of horizontal stripes akin to the flag of the 1848 revolutionaries in Romania, the coat of arms of the socialist regime along with a Dacian Wolf motif.

You're here forever

Nation link:
http://www.blocgame.com/stats.php?id=2182

Nation language: 
Mapudungun, Spanish

Nation location:  Southern cone, South america

Nation map:

Nation name:  Socite

Nation flag:



Flag meaning:. It's a spin off of the mapuche flag.  A very loose spin off. Infact, I wouldn't even call this a true mapuche flag.   However, it is supposed to be, believe or not, the flag of independent mapuche

Mapuche referring to the region in South America sometimes referred to as araucaria
As you know, Socite is named after the strategy that that kept our freedom and indepnedence from Chile, the Socite maneuver.
The black and white border stands for the mountains that surround and protect mapuche.  The colors stand for every country we fought off.  First the incas, then the spaniards, and lastly, the chileans. The green is for victory against Inca who's empire never expanded past mapucheThe yellow-orange is for victory against Spain, who couldn't colonize us after subduing all othersThe blue is for the victory of the revolution against Chile, after a 100 year occupation.  The Chileans did defeat us, but we never gave up, and in the war of independence, we regained our freedom..

The stars symbolize the Socite maneuver that saved us from Chile.  In 1916 after the war of independence, Chile never really accepted we were independent.  They gave up on trying to attack us, however, they were still spiteful and refused to accept our independence.  Less than 30 years later in 1936, the Chilean army attempted to cross our border, and marched straight into our capital!  The generals of Socite, which was still just mapuche at the time, came up with a plan to halt the Chilean army.  Let the troops make it to the capital, he said.  We capture the surrounding 3 cities and cut them off instead.   This strategy was nicknamed the Socite maneuver. You'll notice the stars are in this position

The 3 cities surronding the capital were in the same position.  We won the war due to the general's thinking, and we made Chile recognize our independence under the name, "Socite" .  The capital city was in ruins after the Chileans leveled it to the ground.  We needed new ones, and we are, after all, sentimental people. Our 3 new capital cities that were founded from the 3 original Socite cities after the war was over.   
The stars represent the cities.  And their significance in the invasion.

Lastly, the red symbols in the corner are a tribute to our history as mapuches. 

We like the simplicity of the flag;. It makes for a good design, something easy to recognize and beautiful nevertheless. 

Our country has been independent since 1916.  It has been Socite since Chile recognized our country in 1938

Here's an imgur link if that is easier to see.  As you can see, very simple yet powerful design: https://imgur.com/a/x1sQ6

The flag symbolizes neutrality amongst nations. The eagle represents west while the lion represents East. It shows our neutrality as a small country. And the three stars out there are the three pillars of our state: Security, Healthcare, and Economy.
