Bram Roza from Gouda - The Netherlands
"I instantly thought of the Olympic flag. I know its a bit corny but I want to submit it anyway."
Chris Davis creator of Davis Graveyard in Milwaukie, OR
"We hang these banner in several places in the yard display."
Marco "Kanibal" Almengor from Greenville, NC
"I am enclosing what my " Jolly Roger" would look like. It is in good keeping with the Pirate traditions. It is battle proven and would sail high and proud through all rough and deadly seas."
Diane from the Detroit, MI area made this collage
Shay Hall "It is all hand-beaded and buttoned, and has actually been used as a flag at my home renaissance faire."
Tierney C. Thomas from Naperville, Illinois/Frisco, Texas
"It's made up of drawings on assorted fabrics and papers. No stencils used here! ;) The Latin script translates to "Satan's Blood House." Basically the point of this flag is to represent Hades, such as a country has it's own flag."
Peter wrote: "An old blanket, a cut up bed sheet and we can all be pirates (with a few marker pens and a bit of processing)"
Ren from Tulsa, OK
"It was originally created to tease a friend who claimed she wasn't a nerd and i wanted to encourage her to "let her geek flag fly". i guess it's pretty much the flag for nerdsylvania, eh?"
Kim from Australia
"There is no strong symbolism in my design, really I just had some fabrics I've been wanting to work with for a while. I wanted the result to be rough but still feminine, and really tactile."
"Pink woven fabric hand blanket stitched onto a black rayon knit. I wanted an action shot of my little flag, and found a handy flagpole amongst my tomato plants. Since it's midwinter here, they look a bit shabby."
Kim also submitted this design
"I had a go at adding in the University Skull-A-Day acronym, ... with Noah's first skullphabet."
Finally our random winner chosen from all the entries is
Eric Vanderkooi from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
The flag is "...acrylic paint and charcoal done on the bottom of a found wood drawer from an antique chest of drawers that had survived a house fire."
And now tell him what he's won....
