Proposal Flag Description
1 Ufe-3star.gif Les 3 étoiles symbolisent les trois origines différentes des habitants. Les couleurs symbolisent les terres forestières, l'océan et la glace éternelle.

The 3 stars symbolize the three different origins of the inhabitants. The colours symbolize forest land, ocean and eternal ice.--

2 Propsal of Flag of AR045 by theruler.png The big star represents the united People, the two other stars represents the Mainland and the Islands. The blue symbolizes the Ocean, white symbolizes peace, green symbolizes unity and fertility, and yellow symbolizes the Sun and sky.
3 AR045 suggestion.png A suggestion for AR045 that combines the colors for land, ice, and sky/ocean, and also symbolizes the three peoples of the country.
4 AR045 02.png A minimalist suggestion that symbolizes the ice, sky, and ocean.
5 AR045 flagproposal.png Just as most of the flags, the blue and green symbolize the land and the ocean, the stars represent the 3 major people groups, while the white represents peace.
6 AR045 FlagProp.svg The flag (ratio 8:11) is inspired by Native American & First Nation flags both for design and colours. The 8-pointed star represents Canopus and stands for guidance and unity. The scarlet red conveys the ideas of fire, home and brotherhood whereas the bright cerulean field stands for the sky, peace and innocence. The black edge of the star has no meaning but is a colour commonly used in Amerindian designs. It could always stand for the darkness of the past if this makes sense in AR045 History.
7 AR045FlagProposal7.svg The green represents the fields of the country; the blue represents the ocean and glaciers; and the white line in between represents balance and harmony between the two. (The flag is also a very simplified map of AR045, with the ocean southeast of the land.) The three red stars represent, from left to right, the indigenous peoples of the land; settlement and colonization; and unification of the provinces/independence.
8 Flag proposal.png Two-headed eagle on the flag symbolizes the two leading nations in the country, blue means sea, the red means the blood sheded for independence and white is for moral and environmental cleanliness.
9 Proposed flag ar045.png Sun symbol incorporating a 'native' text in a removable/changeable non-latin alphabet, which currently reads: "He who would do great things should not attempt them all alone."
10 Proposed flag ar045b.png Lotus flower. Just to have something that isn't stars, bars or circles.
11 Ar045.png Gold symbolizes the wealth of the soil. Red symbolizes the blood of those who fought for the freedom. The two stars represent the Galicians and Franquese people, while the thing in the middle is a pattern found on the traditional clothing used by the natives.
12 AR045 flag proposal1.jpg Red white and blue flag displaying a totem and a triangular constellation
13 AR045 flag proposal2.jpg blue and white flag displaying a yellow cross and a triangular constellation
14 5151515.png The 3 smaller stars symbolize the three different origins of the inhabitants. The bigger star stands for the unity of the people. The three colours symbolize the solidarity of the citizens, the ocean and the eternal ice.--

Highways

Letter prefix for national system

N ou RN = route nationale, A ou AN = autoroute nationale


A for Autoroute/Autostrada (national motorways) Primary roads named after state ID they're in (ex. BC 3) Municipality roads (highest level divisions of regions in the country i guess?) named after the state, then a municipality ID is added (ex. BC-CC 2) County? roads (subdivisions of municipalities?) will only have a number (ex. 1392)


For motorway:
A for Autoroute/Autostrada (probably none in cree area)
For trunk/primary:
N for Route Nationale<br K for droga krajowa/kihci-mêskanaw ᑭᐦᒋ ᒣᐢᑲᓇ
For secondary and lower:
P for Route Provinciale
W for droga wojewódzka
O for okimânâhk kihci-mêskanaw ᐅᑭᒫᓈᕁ ᑭᐦᒋ ᒣᐢᑲᓇ


R for Route | ER for Expressways, LR for expressway or trunk links, spurs, etc., regular R for trunk roads


To be neutral, for the primary national system, there is no name, similar to Switzerland. So it would be tagged ref=1234, not ref=N1234. There would be three “layers”:
I. One or two digits: National road: These would be the primary roads connecting the major cities and regions. Used for motorways, trunks or primary roads. 99 possibilities.
II. Three digits: Provincial road: These would connect the major towns. They would be numbered like XYY, with X being the province code, and Y the route number. So a road in Ste. Agnès could be the 234. Can be used by the types of roads above, but also secondary and tertiary roads. 99 per province.
III. Four digits: Municipality road: These would be of minor significance, connecting smaller towns, villages and even hamlets. They are named XYYY, same scheme as above.

Province codes

Numbering plan for the national system

All national highways are given 5-digit numbers. The first and second numbers are the territories in which the highway starts and ends. The final number indicates which axis to which the highway is primarily directed.

Direction numbers:

  • North-South: 1
  • West-East 2
  • North-West: 3
  • North-East: 4
  • South-West: 5
  • South-East: 6
  • Loop: 0

For example:

  • 01091, this highway begins in territory 1, ends in territory 9, and lies on a North to South axis.

National highways can be numbered as 1-digit, 2-digit, 3-digit, or 4-digit numbers. All highways can use 0-9 for any number. There are no letters.

  • 1 digit numbers are for express routes that either bypass entire cities or are meant to go fast without interruption. Because of their 1-digit fashion, there are 10 expressways in total. Even numbers lead north-south, odd numbers lead east-west.
  • 2 digit numbers are for local expressways that carry heavy amounts of traffic, lead next to express routes, or go to more remote/more dense areas. Even/even lead north-south, odd/odd lead east-west, even/odd lead northwest/southeast, odd/even lead northeast/southwest.
  • 3 digit numbers are for expressway or trunk links, spurs, etc. They can also be used for primary roads. AR045 is unique for giving all interchanges these 3-digit numbers. Even/Even/x lead north-south, odd/odd/x lead east-west, even/odd/x lead northwest/southeast, odd/even/x lead northeast/southwest. x = any number 0-9.
  • 4 digit numbers are for exclusively local roads, i.e. secondary, tertiary. Even/even/x/x lead north/south, odd/odd/x/x lead east-west, even/odd/x/x lead northwest/southeast, odd/even/x/x lead northeast/southwest. x = any number 0-9

Examples:

  • 1 - Express route going north-south
  • 10 - Local route/trunk road going northeast/southwest
  • 010 - Spur/link/primary road going northwest/southeast -- second 0 has no meaning
  • 0011 - Local/secondary/tertiary road going east-west -- both 1's have no meaning

There would be no rule for directions, however maybe a historical planning of numbering (like, the first motorways go from the larger cities/states, the latest motorways would go from either newer or less developed cities). Either that or from most developed regions to least.

For official motorways, i guess we could do the same as in FSA regarding planning of them (i mean, for example that most numbers like 1 are reserved somewhere). For the regional/municipality?/county? roads there would be probably just a system connecting the major cities, making the longest and most useful the first ones, however people operating in the region/municipality? could pick one themselves.

Regarding the sub-motorways (ex. a motorway going out from 1 to reach some minor city), we could add the next letters of alphabet to the major highway (ex. Motorway 1c would be the third motorway going out from motorway 1, while for example fifth would be 1e. Letters from Polish/French are not included. In very rare, probably impossible cases when the whole alphabet runs out, this system is useless. Incase of some roads coming out from the spur motorways, another letter would be added to the letter, like: Motorway 1ca, although it won't be really in use mostly.)
