Like I’ve said, I’m not convinced by why the cross should on the Taiwanese flag. I do like the simplistic aspects of flags featuring a cross. But if there should be one on the Taiwanese flag, the DPP flag without Taiwan isn’t bad looking.[/quote]
similar ideas but not identical. the dpp is a party flag. The cross is generic and geometric. There is a well-known “sister version” which is the Republic of Taiwan flag, which was inspired by the Canadian flag. However the island shape in the centre is not symmetrical and is difficult for children to draw.(it was one of my concerns that i didn’t mention until now.) Almost all of these flags are nation-state flags which inevitably are “euro-drived” if we go down the path TGM thinks.
Reducing geometry further we’d get two strips such as the indonesian flag. It’s a balancing act. How much simplicity?
By the way TGM feel free to respond to my points about the Indonesian emblem and the Vietnamese( commies, of european origin) and the Singaporen flag and emblem. How about if we review the flag of the Phillipines. Reminds people of certain “colonial power” perhaps?
