Been about to make a flag for Lietuvan Republikans, though I'd need to find a way to remove the inner shadows/further abstract the figure to look more like this.

Suggestion 1:
When you have an image with only areas of flat color and no transparent pixels, its best to make it a .gif, to prevent Kompression Artifakts.

or

Make it in a compressed format but use a higher quality setting.
When saving .jpg you usually have a choice of quality settings.
I suppose it depends on the program you use.
You can min/max final file size vs artifact shittyness, by making several with different settings.

Suggestion 2:
Its a nice flag!

You did it by hand, I assume.
Looks good.
When you shrink this by more than half, it will look even better.

Yeah, I used my LDD model as reference, drew the outlines with GIMP, filled some spaced and put it through some vectorizer tool.

Papa like.

Some of the lines are a bit off but otherwise you did a good job.

I tried to see if I could mess with the levels and contrast of the original image for an easier way to do that, but I realized that you'd pretty much have to do it by hand anyway so I gave up. Looks like you didn't!

Personally I'd get rid of the "inner" face section, and just have it as a flat surface, but otherwise the execution is nice.
