Flag of Mars- Let's Make a Change!

Postby TheWearWolf » 01 Nov 2016 20:44

This is the Flag of Mars designed by Pascal Lee:

This are my problems with this flag:
1) It is quite painful to look at, which is completely opposite of how a flag should be;
2) It is based on a book series, and therefore is lacking originality in my opinion;
3) The lone thing it symbolizes is not Mars itself, but its terraformation, a process that may never take place.
Therefore, I have made my own design:
MarsFlag2.png

Two lines are a symbol for the two moons of Mars.

The drop on one line and the rise on the other represent the deepest canyon and the highest mountain in the solar system, both on Mars.

The white in the square represent the blank slate mars is to humanity, as well as the sun that looks white on mars.

The three dots then represent the planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.

The red background represents the surface of Mars.

If you too like this flag better, feel free to sign the petition I made in order to change it:

Why bother doing anything, then? It's something I and many other people will like to happen.

I like it. Also looks kinda of "futuristic" which fits well.
