Has anyone made a flag for the old Terran mandate from Stars Without Number? I have a polity which claims it's a successor so its flag would be a variant on this...

Maybe do a variant of the current UN flag?

A globe of the Earth with the initial colonies as stars around it?

As per Golan2072´s idea, but initially at least, ALL colonies as stars, as long as there is still room on the flag - similar to the US flag.

After they run out of room, perhaps they might replace the stars with a number, the total of colonies that are part of the Mandate?

I´d give it five minutes, at most, before a fan calls that flag "Number Without Stars"...

I would think that with the Terran Mandate covering potentially hundreds of sectors with each sector have a couple dozen star systems, any kind of "number" on the flag would be impractical since there would be dozens of new entries every day as the Mandate expanded.

The flag would either be part of a file, and thus easily updated. Or it would be a physical flag that is certainly more advanced than a simple piece of cloth. It would be one more reminder of the Mandate´s technological prowess that their flag ALWAYS shows the correct number of stars.

A 3-D flag?

Hadn't really thought about until you raised the subject. My own take would be a single globe in the centre (the Earth), with a series of concentric rings surrounding it (three, representing the three expansions, coloured Bronze, Silver and Gold). The rings represent the three expansion phases, the circles represent the encompassing protection of the Mandate
