The design for the Northwestern Quarter of the Earth is based upon in tribute to Whitney Smith. The dart or chevron to the fly design, as proposed for the flag of Guyana, was Smith's conception for a flag now accepted across the world.
However the colour scheme stems from ancient Chinese Cosmology. Because, black is associated with the North and white is associated with West. Yellow is also included, since it acts as the reference point from a center.
More recently these colours have been popularized in Japanese pop culture, with the black turtle of the North and white tiger of the South. Furthermore, nearly the entire world under the age of 30 has some notion of these concepts due to the rise of Anime and Pokemon.
This flag can be flown over any area of the Earth in the Northwestern Quarter.

The flag for disputed international spaces is loosely based upon the Olympic Flag. However, the continents are represented by coloured squares. Additionally there are a total of seven squares for all seven continents. This flag is a neutral flag that has all the major colours of the rainbow. The colours indicate a call for a peaceful and fair resolve in the spirit of the international games. The white field represents that peaceful resolve is possible. Finally an orange frame brings clarity to the edges.

Antipodal areas are a rare thing in the USA. Just a few states are a part of this club, which includes Colorado. A small region of Colorado is antipodal to a remote region in France: Kerguelen. But this not a normal part of France. Kerguelen is off in the South India Ocean.
But this flag is for that special slice of the of the Earth where one is standing on the opposite end of the world. And go figure that Colorado would have such a space. The flag combines the Big Dipper with the Southern Cross, since these star systems are easily visible from each respective area.
