The flag for Eurasia. Still a work in progress. (Constructive) suggestions please. Based largely on the flag of the Union State of Russia and Belarus, with color samples from the CIS flag and those of its constituent states. The stripe there is meant to be a laurel branch wreath thing whatever. The one big star and three little ones stand for the thirteen member states.
As I'm prone to do - this is just how I work; take it or leave it - I'm going to go ahead and suggest a long-overdue alteration: 'People's Confederation' is just too Communist. From what I hear, Russia is likely to go back to being Communist about as much as Japan is likely to become imperialist and Germany fascist. Hence: Union State of Eurasia, formally the Union State of the Eurasian Commonwealth.
(What follows is conjecture; it doesn't represent the official view of the Megamod Concept Department team... inasmuch as we have such a thing.)
USE is basically an evolution of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation on the model of the Union State of Russia and Belarus, with an EU-like bloc economy system... an expanded EVRASEC (Eurasian Economic Community). China and several Sinophile countries dropped out after disputes over USE-EF and USE-American relations: Russia - the central figure of USE's western-aligned countries - favored a more confrontational approach, while China preferred to continue its doctrine of avoiding direct conflict with its economically-intertwined Western partners.
Conceived as a counter to rapidly centralizing Europe (the European Federation, with its newly acquired East European assets) and China, the framework for USE was laid by Russian president Tzvetan Todorovich Nikodimov and completed by the administration of General Anastas Yeniseyevich Khabarov. USE has thirteen member states.
The CIS Collective Security Treaty Organisation briefly deployed its peacekeeping forces under the USE banner during the Azerbaijani Civil War in 2017, when a combined Russian-Armenian task force conducted counterinsurgency operations against the radical Azerbaijan National Socialist Front (AMSC) and its Sayiqliq Komitesi militia. Unlike the European Federation, USE member nations retain their respective militaries, albeit with an obligation to dedicate portions of their active armed forces to a centralized Collective Security Force under the Russian Genshtab.

> The Russian name is
In my head: "Reckon a Russian translation should be the name"
Flag first: I prefer the first one with the blue division, I like the asymmetrical layout, fits nicely and the star looks good.
Something doesn't look right with the climbing yellow on the left however (not sure of the correct term sorry. Do you mind me asking what it would look like with:
- the yellow starting above the blue section
- the blue division vertical on the right rather than horizontal (not sure that'd look great but an option I'm sure you've already looked at)
- the blue pushed off to the side (so a red pillar behind the yellow thing)
- Its logical but it seems too similar to the EF system, particularly:
"USE member nations retain their respective militaries, albeit with an obligation to dedicate portions of their active armed forces to a centralized Collective Security Force under the Russian Genshtab."
More or less exactly what I had in mind for the EF (fairly sure I've suggested it somewhere)
- A direct link to SCO I'm not sure about but certainly evolutionary roots are good.
- While I don't want to make a Soviet Union link, I don't think the member states should have too much independence, not like the EF where a central government has considerable influence but perhaps actual regional assignment of governance as a confirmed territory.

> Just because Russia-Communist combo is stereotypical. Just like Germany is no longer Fascist, some people still frown upon them like they are Nazis, and will always be Nazis. The same with Russia. My bad English?
For your sake and mine, please don't use the stupidity of popular opinion (as you see it) as an argument. I get that sort of demagoguery too often. I refer you to Alcuin, who said that 'those people ought not to be listen to who insist that the voice of the people is the voice of God, since the turbulence of the crowd is always akin to insanity.'
And besides - had you actually read the description properly (which you, in your self-righteous anger, seem to not have done), you would notice that I only mention 'Communism' to reject the cliched Russia-Communism connection. In fact, had you actually read the damn description, you would realize that this WIP proposes the very elimination of the Russia-Communism stereotype you seem so fond of (self-righteously) refuting.
Once again I urge you to re-read the description. If your English is faulty (English is a second language for me, too, so don't use that lame excuse), find someone who speaks fluent Russian and English and have him/her explain it to you.
The bulk of your sentiments stem from misinterpretations accidental or deliberate of the material above. Clear?

> Looks correct. But what's wrong with the author? Communists? Fascists? You've been brainwashed, my friend. What the hell is this Russophobia all around??!
I appreciate your input. By the by, it seems I touched a nerve, but do be sensible. I hardly think saying 'Russia will not go back to Communism' is in any way shape or form 'Russophobia.' And I don't remember mentioning fascism in any other context directly related to Russia itself (I did reference Germany, Nazi and current, as a metaphor).
Mayhap you're misreading or reading too much into my notes? I urge you to read again (carefully) and reconsider your opinion.

> i think id need more blue :P
The western factions already have a monopoly on blue, so no. Would be rather monotonous (and detrimental to gameplay) if all the flags and logos fluttering around were bluish.
My favorite color region for logo design is blue (the 'cold' region), but I'm trying to expand into the warmer colors, too. Bear with me.
