Convinced by some of the key starting points of a good flag design. For example, basic colors and geometry, and that a 5 year old should be able to draw it from memory.[/quote]
When haven’t I been convinced with those points?
If you are referring to your cross design, then I point you to rule 2 of Roman Mars’ 5 flag design laws from that video:
- Use meaningful symbolism.
There’s nothing wrong with your green cross design. I think it looks elegant, but there’s a problem with its symbolism. In previous discussions of this thread, the issue was never about the design aspects of the cross, the main issue is how is the cross a meaningful symbolism for Taiwan? Also, if a cross is to be used, there are existing proposals featuring a cross that are equally well designed.

It’s like what Josh Parsons says about the basic tricolor design, if you are not in Europe, don’t use it.

I think the same applies to the cross. It’s not suitable for Taiwan to adopt a religious symbol as a feature of the new flag.
