The Anti-Confederate Flag, by Ed Sebesta
Edward Sebesta has created this vexillogical masterpiece, lauding it as the "Anti-Confederate Flag".
He says, in his blog post introducing this flag, "...the flag should have an appealing design so that people want to wear it because it has an appealing design."
1) I'm sorry to disappoint you, Ed, but this flag isn't appealing.
2) Why would you design a flag to be worn? Aren't you supposed to "fly" a flag? After the design is appreciated on the pole and accepted, people make t-shirts and hats and license plates, not the other way around. Maybe you should've made it a logo design?
3) This cannot easily be interpreted as being anti-Confederate. Perhaps you should just fly the Confederate flag upside-down?
Never mind, I don't think anyone would notice then, either.
The stars would be pointing downward, but I think people would be led to assume you were a Confederate occultist; defeats the purpose, eh?
