Althis - Alaska Proposals by Akkismat Althis - Alaska Proposals by Akkismat
4 Different proposals for an alternate Alaska that I had designed. The first one I chose to put into the flagdesign challenge that was posted on the Alternatehistory,com forums by JJXDB:

CHALLENGE:


Design the flag for an Alaska that was never purchased by the USA, with its capital at Novoarkhangelsk (OTL Sitka). Your entry may pertain to one of the following options:


Option 1: A fully integrated Russian majority Krai of the Russian Federation, assuming the butterfly effects of this are minimal and history continues as it was OTL during the 20th Century.


Option 2: A Russian majority independent Alaska, who won independence after the 1917 Revolution with the backing of both the British Empire and the USA. This Alaska may be a Republic or Kingdom, but is hostile to communism


Option 3: An Aleut majority independent Alaska, who won independence after the British Empire intervened on their behalf. Again, this Alaska may be a Republic or Kingdom, gaining independence during the October Revolution and is hostile to communism


Option 4: An Aleut and Canadian dominated region absorbed into Canada, with the decision by the Russian Government that selling Alaska to the British would pose less of a threat selling to the rising star of America. This happens in the run up to WWI.

That would be the 3rd flag: For an independant Alaskan republic.

Cool collection! The first flag reminds me a lot of the Japanese flag however. One could also assume this to be different parts of a fractured Alaska ruled over by different factions and nation states, which'd create some interesting scenarios. ^^

Thanks for the compliment!

Your suggestion gives me some inspiration at trying a map to see what these 4 nation states would look like together. :) I'll keep you posted!

Oh, and any other suggestions and/or critique always welcome!
