Forest Regional Message Board
It would be pretty weird to just not have the three trees in our flag anymore at this point. Besides, as I've said before, the current flag is nearly vexillologically perfect imo, it's simple, memorable, easy to draw, etc.. I don't think it should be replaced. Maybe modernized a little bit, but not replaced entirey.
It is rather perfect. Even I could draw it, haha.
There might be something to making special-use flags for Forest, as would befit an old and venerable region. Maybe flag variants for the Electoral Period, Z-Day, Pride Month, a Christmas Holiday one with a wintry theme, etc. would be appropriate. There could even be a "Mourning Flag" or "Remembrance Flag" for special use during solemn occasions, like Mar. 6th for Errinundera's CTE. But as I won't be designing any of them for utter lack of theoretical and technical ability, that's my two cents.
Or it could just be Love and Nature with the mask on, haha. That was the best. :-)
Agreed with the general sentiment being expressed - I am a huge fan of the current flag, and something would need to be remarkably good to get my vote as a replacement. I would hope that should a contest be held to that end, the current flag will be included in the options to ensure it can be retained if that is the preference. Certainly I wouldn't want to see anything that changes the color scheme, which is used in all of our symbology and letterhead. I would also be more than a bit hesitant about anything more complicated than what we have, which is clear and recognizable, as is one of only a handful of regional flags amongst the largest regions that actually look like, you know, flags. Our current flag and symbol situation is exceedingly good.
As soon as someone mentioned "flag contest" I immediately started doodling some ideas, and one of them was a flag specifically designed with a winter version in mind. The three trees are green with white outlines, but then in winter they're white with green outlines.
Or, as you said, just straight up Love and Nature would work too
This is a good idea! Special flag variants for special occasions. It's a good way to show what kinds of things Forest values as a group while being fun to make, without requiring a complete rebrand or ditching of traditional elements.
