What makes a good flag?
What Makes a Good Flag
Keep it simple: The flag should be so simple that a child can draw it from memory.
Use meaningful symbolism: The flag’s images, colors, or patterns should relate to what it symbolizes.
Use 2-3 basic colors: Limit the number of colors on the flag to three, which contrast well and come from the standard color set.
No lettering or seals: Never use writing of any kind or an organization’s seal.
Be distinctive or be related: Avoid duplicating other flags, but use similarities to show connections.
