Here's a few simple variants to be going on with:

I personally don't like the ones where the holly and spear are outlined in white or yellow.

The ones with the white or yellow circle are better, but not quite there.

I actually like the one with the yellow background the best. It is simple, which it how I think a flag should be. Similar to the New Mexico flag.

I am thinking of changing my personal flag to this:
gb_brwa.gif

It features the lion and flowers of my coat of arms, However the red and white saltires on a blue field, which attempts to combine the St Patrick's saltire with the St Andrew's Saltire. This is a heritage reference like the flowers. But blue is also my favourite colour, and the split red saltire is also a reference to railroad tracks, symbolising my other great interest. The gold circle also makes the saltire look like a Celtic cross thats been turned 45 degrees, a reference to the Northern Ireland football badge, which is also based on a Celtic Cross design.
I'd like to know what you guys think or if you have any suggestions.

I've never quite seen what purpose a personal flag would serve which a banner of arms doesn't. But, of course, this design could be a coat of arms ;)

Thats true, I was actually playing about and that was what I came up with, and decided I liked it. I hadn't really intended to change the arms, but your proposal is quite attractive.

I may as well share mine. This is a banner of my arms, which are assumed but registered with one of the American outfits that does free registrations. There's honestly very little specific symbolism in the shield/flag design itself, though in the full arms the motto, crest, etc. have a bit more significance. Mostly I wanted something that was new and looked nice.
