That's really cool. I once tried my hand at designing a new American flag and ended up making what was essentially a Puerto Rican flag by accident. I suppose vexillology is not my forté.

We made some cool 51 star flags.

Have you noticed that capt America is really capt Puerto Rico?

Vexillologically speaking, even though it is one of the most recognized flags in the world, the US flag breaks a lot of flag design rules. The canton (upper blue part with the stars) is really cluttered, and if the flag werent so iconic, and emerged today as a new flag, most people would bash it for a bad design.

yeah, even though I love the US color scheme, I actually prefer the symmetry and broad fields of the Puerto Rican flag. What would you say is the most aesthetically perfect national flag?

The Faroe Islands flag is my favorite. The white field and vibrant Nordic cross is beautiful, strong, and elegant
