One year in, and nearly 500 flags online, the Flag Locker continues to grow and consume my life. I'm proud of the progress so far and look forward to what the vexillogical community can contribute to make the Flag Locker the place to go for all things vexillology.

In the original version of this site, each flag could be displayed at a range of sizes. That was the root of my experimentation into HTML5 Canvas. Most websites utilize .svg (Scalable Vector Graphic) images to present the same image with consistent quality no-matter the scale. I saw potential in HTML5 Canvas to do the same. By defining each part of the drawing in relation to the height and width of the canvas the image was, endlessly scalable, despite being rendered as a bitmap image. Did it serve a purpose? No. Not really. Was it interesting? Interesting enough to keep me working on it.
I wish there was a website dedicated to keeping track of flag and arms contests around the world. I can picture it in my head, but bah humbug, I don't know how to make this stuff.— Trerrysaur (@trerrysaur) February 19, 2019
