Jimmy Cee, for the flag you can check out spoonflower.com

I sew a lot and came across this site for designing your own fabric and they will print it and send it to you. They handle small orders and I know it's popular in the crafty world, though I haven't used it myself as I generally avoid cross border shopping because of the shipping and brokerage fees adding up.

But I really like the design and it's simplicity, and anyone who saw it flying in your garden would be sure to recognize the significance. Actually I think it would make a very hip logo!

Thanks for the suggestion, however if there is any way I am able to do this myself I certainly will.
I agree with the simplistic layout, easy to see and understand although one may want to play tic tac toe on it..
Right now I have to many things going on here, need to put this on a back burner....

Ok, I openly admit my crafty side is obsessive, and so I couldn't stop thinking about how you could make this flag easily. I know it's on your back burner, but if it gets to the front sometime, here's something to try.  I, too, want to do everything myself and often spent copious amounts of time creating things myself I could buy easily and inexpensively, just because it's way more fun... Like marshmallows and clothes for my kids.

So, here's a link to a resist dying technique using water soluble glue. 

http://www.bloombakecreate.com/2010/08/resistance-is-not-futile-giveaway/

The idea stems from traditional wax resist batik fabric dying, simplified considerably, though the results don't seem to suffer. If you were to begin with a yellow fabric or dye your fabric yellow first, you could apply the glue resist and overdye with (the right shade of) blue, and I think you could achieve the desired effect without too much trouble. I believe in the link she uses a thin (non-cracking) type of fabric paint applied by spraying. This won't add weight and will allow flexibliity, both important for maximum flight of your flag. Smile   Most importantly, the resist technique also means your fabric will look the same on both sides.

In terms of fabric, natural fibres will accept dye more easily and thoroughly, but may not be the strongest in the wind. I would opt for a nicely weighted cotton or hemp if it was me. You can also get blank flags and then you wouldn't have to sew or hem or add grommets, and it would be built to hold up, but it might be tougher to find a natural fiber that way, too.

Anyway, do with that what you will. I hope it might useful but if not, that's cool. My brain enjoyed the puzzle and can now rest... until the next one! (Actually the next one involves yellow and brown spots on my tomato leaves, so I guess there will be no rest!)
