One of my main motivations to build something is building something no one has donne before. And after a quick web search I found out that no one has ever build a wood flag of my country, and there is a reason for that. Unlike the US or Canada where there are lots of designs and some other flags with a relatively simple build, the portuguese flag isnt one of them and that inicially I didnt had any ideia on how to make this. I ended up ask the internet and sure enough I had 4/5 options, I used them all.
First I used transparent vanish mixed with paint to get the big colours. Then I painted the inner blue shields and drilled the 5 points with a dremel, using the same dremel I also carved all the white center shield that I later filled with resin. For the sphere I decided to carve the wood manually (in the orginal flag the sphere is yellow which is basically the same colour as pine, the building material, pallet wood). After that it was just buring the castles with a welding iron and adding some transparent vanish on the top and voilla!!!

I will also leave a short 3min video on the entire build, overall I think it looks nice, now I just have to hang it on my wall.

I like your flag. More than that, I like your love for your country.

But I think you didn’t Google very hard about Wooden flags of Portugal, looks like their were others before you.
