To draw the Rebel flag, you should first learn to draw St. Andrew's Cross; the "X"-shape taken from the St. Andrew's Cross is the centerpiece of the flag. From there, add the stars and colors to complete the representation.
Things You'll Need
- Red pencil
- Blue pencil
Draw an upside down "V" at the bottom of your paper that begins about 1/2 inch in from each corner. The point should end in the middle of the paper and be about a 1/2 inch to 1 inch below the center mark. Use a ruler to draw straight lines.
Turn your paper upside down and repeat Step 1.
Add the same "V"-shapes on the short side of your paper to the left and right. Again, begin about 1/2 inch from the top and bottom of the paper. This process forms the St. Andrew's Cross that the rebel flag was modeled after.
Trace a thin border around the "V's" that compose your your St. Andrew's cross.
Insert the white stars inside the bars of the cross. Place one star in the center and three more evenly spaced on either side of the cross in each direction.
Color the rebel flag. The stars stay white as does the slim border around each "V"-shape. The bars of the St. Andrew's cross are blue and the remaining triangles are red.
