Scalzi's Weekend Assignment #43: Congratulations, you've become your own soverign state! Design a flag for the United States of You, using no more than three colors and one symbol (the symbol can be of any color). Explain your design choices. Don't worry about actually making the flag -- you can just tell us about it.
Extra credit: make a picture of the flag. Because, let's face it, that's time-intensive.

Those who read Andrea's journal -- or rather, her journal comments -- know that her flag resembled my first attempt so much that I had given up on the weekend assignment. But I'd be honored to be a subdivision of Andi-Land. That is, if she'll approve.
My flag represents all the times I really wanna lash out but then remember I'm holding onto the sign -- or vision -- of peace. Even though I get angry, frustrated and disappointed in the world around me, (and that which goes on in my own head) I still have the reminder of why I'm really here and what I believe. Peace is the way...dammit.
As for the soft pink -- just call me Prissy Pirate.
