Hi, How are you? I'm going to teach you how to create a flag for your created nation
(REQUIREMENTS) Any Photoshop Version, I recommend CS6 or later versions,
First of all we create our nation in The game editor.
In Editor - Create A Civilization - Create New Civilization
We Create Our Civilization
The main thing is the name
In Where It Says NAME We Write The Name Of Our Nation In My Case Potato With Cheese
The Next Is The Color We Precised The Button That Tells Civilization Color, We Select The Main Color Of The Nation In My Case I Will Select The Orange Because My Nation Is A Potato xD
Now we select the service list option, the list of service are as achievements by conquered provinces, we have a few models, we select the model, and we choose the color, in my case orange and white
Ok The Flag No Ay That to Edit it Equals the Color that Has,
And we keep the Nation
Now we can close the game,
Generally, the folder is on this route C:\Program Files (x86)\ Steam\steamapps\common\ Age Of Civillizations 2
At least Asi I enter the game folder, At least that's how I enter the game folder.
Ok Inside the folder called Age Of Civilizations 2, we enter the folder GAME
Once inside we look for the folder called civilizations_editor and enter it
A Data, Our newest Civilization Created Always Will be the last folder
We enter the folder and look for the last folder
We enter the last Folder and you will find 2 PNG Photos,
To verify that our nation is created Let's double click on one of the 2 photos
The flag must be the same as the default
If It Is The Same Flag We Select THE 2 PHOTOS AND We Send It To The Desk
Now Open Photoshop
If they are good in Fotoshop they are edited alone, but as I am Manco Download a picture of a potato in Google for My Potato-Nation
The Measures Must Be IN PIXELS IS IMPORTANT
There are 2 Flags For That There Are Two Measures The Big One, 68 Wide, And 44 High, IN PIXELS
Then In Photoshop We Give It In, File - New, The Background Content Has To Be White, And We Added The Pixels, 68 Wide And 44 High, Here The Sample
Now We Select, File - Place
And We Search The Photo Or Edit Above The White,
When we place the image, we have to adjust it well
Once Placed We Precede The Enter Key,
It Will Be Blurred But In The Game It Will Be In 4K I Will Promise You 😉
Now Open the Option, File - Save, VERY IMPORTANT SAVE AS A PNG PHOTO IF NOT, WILL NOT DETECT THE PHOTO
We already have the first flag, if you put a photo, it is the same procedure to edit the small flag, (RECOGNIZE THAT YOU HAVE DIFFERENT PIXELS) If you edited the big flag well, When we created the workspace for the small flag we will place the big flag
Measurements of the Small Flag, 27 Wide, 18 High, IN PIXELS
And place the photo, or if the great flag is edited, we place the big flag.
In my case I will reposition the photo of the potato to have more quality
The small flag is more pixelated than the big one
And we keep the flag as a type of PNG photo
I finish the difficult part
It should be like that
We Copy The Name of the Original File
Now If we want Eliminate the Ancient Flag
Beware The Name Of The Big Original Banner It has to be stuck on the big flag created by us
And we paste in our new flag
We do the same procedure with the small flag.
Now we move our new flags to the folder that we opened before
And we replaced
We Close Everything, And Enter Age Of Civilizations
And now we can add our new nation to our scenario or to some scenario of the game
CONGRATULATIONS YOU CREATED YOUR FLAH
I made flags. They are all simple, but there are 21 of them. I used the program: FlagMaker Jr. Most flags resolution: 751x501.
I will be glad if you use at least one of them, you can even specify the author, then I will be glad twice.
Send me your ideas for flags, I'll try to implement them.
5 NEW FLAGS!
GREAT SLAV FEDERATION!

How to add own flags for Governments of Civilization?
Each Civilization have own TAG
Example: "pol" - Poland
All lists of tags and Civilizations can be found:
Game files -> game -> languages -> civilizations -> Bundle.properties
Each type of government have own extra TAG
Game files -> game -> Governments.json
For monarch extra tag is: "m"
So the flag of Monarch of Poland will have this TAG: "pol_m"
For the Horde the TAG will be "pol_h" etc.
Game files -> game -> Flags - Small flag (Required)
Game files -> game -> FlagsH - Large flag(Optional)
For own Civilizations created in "Civilization Creator"
Game files -> game -> civilizations_editor -> 1544372214811aiomucxo
"1544372214811aiomucxo" is an example TAG of your Civilization
"1544372214811aiomucxo_FL.png" Democracy Flag
"1544372214811aiomucxo_m_FL.png" Monarchy Flag
"1544372214811aiomucxo_h_FL.png" Horde Flag
