## National Flag and Coat-of-Arms

The National Flag and Coat-of-Arms are both national symbols of the Republic of Dawetid. In the borders of the Republic, any individual may use both the National Flag and Coat-of-Arms, as long as they are used in a respectful manner.**National Flag**

Prepare a piece of rectangular cloth of solid red colour with dimension ratio 2:3. Lay out the cloth horizontally, so that the long edges are at the top and bottom.

Label the corners

*A*,*B*,*C*and*D*such that*AB*and*CD*form the two long edges, and*AC*and*BD*form the two short edges.Bisect the edge

*AB*at*E*,*AC*at*F*,*CD*at*G*and*BD*at*H*.Join

*FH*and*EG*. Let*I*be the intersection of these two lines, and hence, the midpoint of the rectangle.The rectangular section

*FCGI*shall be coloured blue.Bisect

*FI*at*J*,*CG*at*K*,*GI*at*L*and*CF*at*M*. Let*N*be the intersection point of*JK*and*LM*.Bisect

*LN*at*O*.Draw a circle with centre

*N*and radius*NO*.Let

*P*be the intersection point of circle*N*and line segment*NM*,*Q*– the intersection of circle*N*and*KN*, and*R*– the intersection of circle*N*and*NJ*.Join the line segments

*OQ*,*PQ*,*PR*and*OR*. The square formed shall be coloured white.Bisect the angle

*QNO*,*PNJ*,*PNQ*and*ONJ*respectively. Let*S*,*T*,*U*and*V*be the intersection points of these angle bisectors and circle N.Join the lines

*TU*,*TV*,*VS*and*SU*. The square formed shall be coloured white.All other construction lines – any line bisectors, angle bisectors, circle

*N*– are imaginary and will not be shown on the final flag.

**Coat-of-Arms**

Draw a circle of desired size with centre

*O*– this shall be coloured blue.Draw a line through

*O*and parallel to the bottom edge of the surface. Let*A*and*B*be the intersection points of the line and the circle.Draw a line through

*O*and perpendicular to*AB*. Let*C*and*D*be the intersection points of the line and the circle.Bisect

*OA*at*E*and draw a circle with centre*O*and radius*OE*. Denote this smaller circle as*O*′.Let

*F*,*G*and*H*be the intersection points between*O*′ and the line segments*OC*,*OB*and*OD*respectively.Join the line segments

*EF*,*FG*,*EH*and*HG*. The square formed shall be coloured white.Bisect angles

*FOG*,*EOF*,*EOH*and*GOH*. Let*I*,*J*,*K*and*L*be the intersection points formed between the angle bisectors and*O*′.Join the line segments

*IJ*,*JK*,*KL*and*LI*. The square formed shall be coloured white.All other construction lines – any line bisectors, angle bisectors, circle

*O*′ – are imaginary and will not be shown on the final coat-of-arms.
