I've been a long-time fan of flags, and recently had the idea to design a personal flag to represent my own identity. I did some research and tried to follow the basic principles of flag design. Below is an explanation of the symbolism:
The flag specifications are very simple. The aspect ratio is 2:3. The green triangles extend from the top-left and bottom-right corners out 2/3 of the way along each side. The three stars are spaced out equally along the diagonal connecting the bottom-left and top-right corners, and all have outer-radius (distance from center to a corner) equal to 1/6 the hoist (or 1/9 the fly).
I wrote the flag in XML using SVG and then exported to PNG, which is displayed above. I also wrote a Python script to help compute the (almost) exact coordinates of each star. All this can be found in my dropbox project folder.
This is my first ever attempt at designing a flag, so any and all feedback would be highly appreciated! Also, if you know any flags that look really similar to this, please let me know (I don't want it to be mistaken for something else).
