Flags of Europe: A 1983 Doomsday Map by mdc01957 Flags of Europe: A 1983 Doomsday Map by mdc01957
Here's something that I've been working on-and-off over the past several days: an experimental map combining my older style of map-making with flag designs. In this case, I thought of making one for the Doomsday-verse AU, set around the 30th Anniversary of the event that nearly ended the world in that universe. Many perished in the atomic fires on that September day in 1983, entire countries torn apart if not lost forever. And yet people moved on as new nations emerge and old ones find their place in a brave new world.

For those familiar with 1983: Doomsday though, you may notice that among other things not every European country and survivor-nation is represented here. That's mainly due to the countries and unions on the map being the ones who either made an appearance or were referenced in the AU stories (1983-doomsdaystories.deviantar…); accuracy admittedly wasn't the primary goal here though I tried to make it as close as possible. The flags in particular are largely taken from the source material, including the WCRB logo. That said, I couldn't resist adding the still-in-the-proposal stage Survivor-Nation of Sopron in there. Which, if you've also seen the fics, may be familiar. ;)

Still, I hope you enjoy the end-result!

*UPDATE: There's a small typo where it should say "Lithuania." My apologies. ^^;

I don't own 1983: Doomsday. All rights (along with certain flags) belong to their respective owners.

...also, the same can be said for Axis Powers Hetalia.

The bomb has indeed become nigh synonymous with the 20th Century. And frankly, I doubt that even if people one day disarm all nuclear weapons and try to convince all mankind to hell and back of the evils of the bomb...that we even know about it means that the shadow remains.

Well I guess the silver lining to all of this is that there will be no Yugoslav wars because if the preventive power of a nuclear curbstomp... :(

Thing is, an alternate violent breakdown of Yugoslavia still takes place, though much earlier, with the remnants of Slovenia and Croatia bailing out in time.

Apparently, not even the apocalypse stopped Yugoslavia from imploding, even if the much of the territory escaped the nuclear fires intact.

Is Transylvania a monarchy? Also, I see Transylvania (Romanian remnants) and Partium (Hungarian remnants) still haven't solved their issues. LOL... enemies even after Doomsday. Nice map!
