Can you explain me how you made this flag?

I created this on my iPad mini with the Procreate app and a Wacom stylus. First, I imported an image of the OTL Kalmar Union flag to eyedrop its exact colors, hid it, created a new layer, and painted the entire canvas yellow. Next, I pulled up the OTL flag and eye dropped its red, hid it, created a new layer, and painted part of the canvas so that, when I drag it to the other side of the canvas, the brushie part will be cut off, creating a rectangle. I dragged the red rectangle to the middle, and imported an image of the Iron Cross on a new layer, placing it in the first third on the left. I lowered its opacity and created yet another layer, and painted a splotch of red under the see-through Iron Cross image. I carefully erased all the red around the Cross, and moved the Cross to the middle third, where I did the same thing as before, only with yellow. After that, I duplicated the cross from the first third and dragged it over to the far right third, and did my best to line everything up to make it look pretty. I exported it to iPhoto as a JPEG, uploaded it to DeviantArt, and the rest is alternate history. ;)

Oh ok, I was mainly wondering about those crosses, but it seems you took a totally different approach on that. :)

Yeah, there's probably an easier way, but I just stuck with what I know.

Wasn't he the one responsible for the Union's breakup?
