Flag of the Fractal Nations 01
  (of 20)

These images were drawn in 2004 or earlier, and some of them have already appeared on this site. I am now presenting all or most of them in a series called Flags of the Fractal Nations. These are the product of an extremely deep exploration of an obscure and barren part of a Mandelbrot set. While I have overlayed, colored, textured and added background in Photoshop, you can be sure that what you see is exactly what the exploration produced, sans the overlay, color, texture and background. These are some of the most unusual and dramatic configurations I have ever found in the fractal universe.
