The 'Shroom:Flag Contest

From the Super Mario Wiki

Flag Contest

As part of our end‐of‐the‐year festivities, we have decided to organize a contest! The goal is to create a flag to represent the Mario Wiki! Here are the rules:

  • Create a flag to represent the Wiki!
  • The flag can be based off a real national, state, etc. flag, though it must be altered in some way.
  • Designs that are completely original are also accepted.
  • Accepted dimensions for the flags are:
    • 500px by 1 000px
    • 630px by 990px
    • 600px by 1 000px
  • The more, the merrier! There is no limit to the number of flag designs you can submit.
  • To avoid bias, the artists’ names will be kept anonymous during voting, though the names will be revealed following the end of the contest.

To send me your flag, create the image on Photoshop, GIMP or some other image editing software. Then, upload it to Imageshack. It’s a great site for image hosting, and you can get a free account there. Once you have uploaded your flag, PM it to me on the forum. Along with the flag, please include a brief description of the flag. For example, if you were describing the American flag:

The American flag.

In the top‐left corner of the flag (the canton), there is a blue square with 50 white stars, one for each state. Thirteen stripes, alternating red and white, take up the rest of the flag. The 50 stars represent the 50 states and the 13 stripes represent the original 13 colonies.

It doesn’t need to be very detailed. A basic description like that is all you need.

Entries will be open from now until November 7th. No late entries will be accepted! Following the entry period, the voting round will start, and it will end November 14th.

If you are looking for flags to base your design on, use these sources:

The M symbol represents the main series we cover, the emblems on the corners represent the other important series we also cover. The Japanese words, the NIWA logo, is to show our Wiki is a part of NIWA. The five mushrooms represents the Wiki's age.

This flag is a flag. The red "M" is symbolising Mario, the yellow "W" for Wario, the purple "S" for Waluigi, and the green background for Luigi. SMW spells Super Mario Wiki. The heads of the main Mario characters surround the letters.

Description: A striped flag with a Mushroom in the middle. The colours represent Mario, Luigi, Wario and Waluigi's colours and the fact that the wiki is multicultural. There are Mario and Luigi's hats on each side.

Daisy's Pastel Dream, a composition by me.

The Princess is presenting herself from her best side tonight. She is sporting a dream of decent pastel colors, a lovely and tender veil of soft colors that soothe the human eyes. It's modest appearance contrasts sharply with the wild and vibrant colors of the messages in the background. On top of this delicate fabrication of sensationsrests a distinct, yet graceful touch of bold ebony letters on top of a pearl-white gleam. This masterful symphony of shapes and colors leads the viewer with a firm, yet pleasant grasp, until their journey of awe comes to a circle in the bottom left corner, where Princess Daisy meets the beholder's gaze and greets them merrily. The lady herself is wearing a mustard-colored dress with puffy sleves which resonate tactfully with the princess' main accessory: The megaphone. All in all this astounding composition is an ode to the grace of mankind's society, as well as an inspiring metaphor for the meaning of words.

Thank you for the attention. I'll be selling prints for $3000.00 per piece for the rest of the evening.

It is based off of the Welsh flag. I have changed the boring red dragon to Porple's colors, because he is the founder of the Wiki. I have also changed the green to red, because that is the color associated with the Mario series.
