Sci-fi flags

One of my interests is heraldry and vexillology (the study of flags).  Also as a sci-fi and RPG fan, I thought I show you a few flags that I made for a setting I am working on.

First is the Terran Confederation.

This represents the main human empire in the galaxy with its capital world of Earth.  The midnight blue background is to represent outer space with the yellow sun to be the Sun and the blue circle cross is an astrological system of Earth the home of the human race.  I have thought about olive branches in yellow around it or other objects.  Or just to change it have 4 pointed stars around it to represent the planets in the confederation.

Second is the Compact of New Zion.

This is a splinter group of humanity started by ultra-conservative Christians.  The background is black to represent space with a white and yellow cross over it.  The white is the purity of their faith and the yellow is the light of God over the darkness.  I was also thinking of adding some other Christian imagery, but it would make it too complicated.

The third is the Republic of New Texas.

This one was just a fun what if people from Texas set up an independent Texas on another planet.  So I took the Flag of Texas and change it to have 3 stripes(red, white, red) instead of 2(white, red).

I plan on having more like an Islamic splinter, some political factions, and alien flags.
