Flag Screensaver - Canada

Flag Screensaver - Canada
Want an OS X Screensaver to show how proud you are of your homeland?

Download O' Canada Screensaver

Currently, the only available flag is Canada. US version will come soon (sidenote: I'm a proud resident of US but for some twisted reasons, I decided to do Canada one first :)...)

If you would like me to make any other flags, post it in the comment.

Based on Old Glory Screensaver.



Iceland! Please! Iceland!

Just wondering... will you make a tutorial on how to make the texture for the flag?

Posted by: Ernest Liu at March 10, 2004 02:22 PM

Oh yes, beautiful screensaver. I forgot all about this!

Posted by: Phillip Ryu at March 10, 2004 02:42 PM

did you use your own texture, or one of the patterns that was including with PhoPhoShop?

I like the detail paid to the stitching... good job!

how did you make it?

Can you make an Apple logo flag please?

Posted by: gorickey at March 10, 2004 06:03 PM

DCohen, I took a photograph of real fabric texture (my roommate is taking a fashion design class so there's plenty of fabric materials to use here :) ..). I've added this to future tutorial list.

Apple logo flag, now that's an idea!

Great work!!!

Please, can you make this for the flag of Venezuela???

Posted by: Brian G Laughlin at March 10, 2004 09:30 PM

I've never heard of Venezuela before. Googled it up and it sure looks like an interesting place.

Must be very warm there :)

The flag will be in next update

Thanks a lot Adam!

Actually is 79°F here right now (12:14 am).

Venezuela is such a nice country with beautiful places; the Great Savannah, the largest waterfall in the world (El Salto Angel), etc.

We are having a bad time now because of our goverment but we are working on that.

Anyway, thanks for your fast replay, I'll be looking forward the next update, When it will be out? ;-)

Awesome screensaver. A Palestinian flag would be great :)

Please Please Adam, make an Australia one. We saved your arse in the war :)

south africa

i was playing around to make an italian, but i could not figure out the texture.

Posted by: mdc at March 11, 2004 07:20 PM

A Dutch flag would require only an additional blue color along the white and red you used for the Canadian flag, so if you would :-)...

Very nice screen saver, by the way. Since I live in Canada, I'm already using it. But Argentina would be great!

Posted by: Mauricio at March 12, 2004 02:25 PM

Great work!!!

Please, can you make this for the flag of Cuba??

Posted by: francisco at March 20, 2004 04:42 PM

I'm a little late, but glad to see you starting with Canada. As a US citizen, I can easily say that Canada is one of the most sane countries on Earth right now. Gratuitous "eh" joke left out.

Posted by: Chris Vincent at March 23, 2004 06:37 AM

Woohoo! Canadian pride! :)

How about a Confederate flag? The battle flag would be cool, but I adore the Confederate "Stars and Bars" flag. Google it up and see what you think.

The *new* Iraq flag might be cool, too. Although, I don't know if they ever ratified it or whatever.

I love these screensavers! How do you make them?

Posted by: Tyler Dykstra at June 2, 2004 08:57 PM

I would really really love the flag of one the provinces of Canada:

The Canadian flag is beautiful...
Portugal would be even better!!!!!
Congrats on your designs. They're really gorgeous.
I'll bookmark your page and refer it to my designer friends.

As an aspiring web artist, straight out of high school,
I would like to say thanks for the awesome screensaver... Canada Rocks!

You did a GREAT job with the Canadian flag, so far only Microsoft had done something absolutely nice with the uSA flag.
What about the AUSTRALIAN flag now? I'm a proud Aussie and would love to see the flag of my country on my screeen! So far I have the Mapple Leaf on my office computer and the Stars & Stripes at my PC home, I'dike to see an Australian as well. Thanks.

These flags are amazing. When will it be possible to get the Icelandic flag? Fan nr. 1

Posted by: Hallur Dan Johansen at August 5, 2004 01:02 AM

Could you please do an Italian flag?
