I was flipping through the flags making my team when i noticed the communities (duck, huzzah, etc.) I was wondering: do you join them or do average hedgewars games like me make them? Anyway, i decided to make one within the website Big Grin! give your idea for the name and tell me if you are joining!

Oh man waddup

I think the flags marked as "community" are supposed to differ from real country flags. They aren't there to mark any community, they are just fictional flags with anything.

We've had people form clans from time to time. I think picking same flag was something they sometimes did.

There's no official clan-oriented stats or anything.

It's true, many flags now in Hedgewars actually came from the community. But this applies to all flags (including country flags).
Community members like to post flags into the flags thread, and a couple of flags posted in this thread were included into Hedgewars in the past:

http://hedgewars.org/node/1898

Here's a flag pack where I collected almost all not-included-into-Hedgewars flags from the above thread (except mine):
https://hedgewars.org/node/6443

However, I think the term “Community” for referring to flags is somewhat a relic of the past which has for some reason survived until today. This term is more used to seperate non-country flags from country flags rather than denoting actual community involvement.

Technically, the so-called “Community” flags are the flags where the file name starts with “cm_”.

The rule of thumb is, that there are currently 3 ways to categorize the flags:
* The default flag (“hedgewars.png”)
* “Community” flags (“cm_*”)
* Country flags (basically everything else)

Sadly, we currently have 1 flag which violates this rule-of-thum, namely esperanto.png (Esperanto is a language, not a country). I guess this has been done by mistake.

I think nowadays the term “Community flag” is kind of a misnomer but I don't know a better name.

PS: If you want to draw your own flags, you can read a very short how-to here:

"Fictional flag" ?

Or the opposite - group the country flags into "Real flags" or just "Country flags", since there's a limited number of them. Custom flags number can expand potentially infinitely, so it makes sense to not pack them into a group, which is much bigger than half of all flags.
