Your challenge for May is to design (or redesign) a flag or banner for any of the many governments, groups, entities, or whatever in the Star Trek universe. Many have been shown in the shows and movies over the years, but you're welcome to redesign any of them. Could be a ship, baseball team, planet, species, anything! Some examples: http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Flags_and_banners http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Flag_of_the_Federation A few from STVI: Vulcan - Romulan - Klingon (Having a hard time finding the others from this movie!) Guidance and inspiration: The 5 Basic Principles of Flag Design - Don't use these as rigid rules, more guidelines. https://www.reddit.com/r/vexillology/ One request, try to avoid a "bedsheet" design, which is just a logo on a solid color flag (basically what the Federation flag is), try to use the entire flag as your canvas. Of course, if it looks good, feel free to ignore this! Flags and banners should be fun and relatively easy to design, so feel free to submit multiple entries. And I expect to see a lot of entries! As always, email your entries to ptrope "at" gmail "dot" com by the end of the month, as well as posting them in this thread.
