This flag design for Newham, London, England, was designed to replace Newham's current flag, which looks like a logo, and it has gradients and lettering. I used the curved stripe from their current flag, which represent the river Thames, but made it simpler and stretched it across the entire flag. Since Newham is part of London, I used the sword from London's flag andchanged it white. The red and white represent England and the United Kingdom.
The bad part is, when it is not on a flagpole, it reminds me of a cola logo.
