I remember seeing a template somewhere for people who wanted to create an icon, but I can't find it.
Other that that, you could request it and someone else might do it.

Well, I hereby request it (I thought I already had).
Has anyone tried or decided to try or actually begun?

Here is the template. It'd better be linked in the first post.

Here are my propositions for Tamil:

Is there a flag for the Soviet Union?

I believe I shall. I'll try to fit the usual hammer and sickle in there, possibly fitting a star above it.

I thought about creating a flag for Chinuk Wawa since I post in it with decent frequency...but I quickly got stuck. Wawa was a trade language spoken by many many communities; there's no single flag that would work for all of them. The one that comes closest just from a geographical standpoint is the Cascadia flag, but that movement isn't remotely connected to the language (it'd be kinda like using the US flag for a Native language because hey, you're within US borders, so we can use the US flag to identify you, right?) The particular dialect I speak is from Grand Ronde, but using their flag would be weird.

What must be done to get it actually adopted by the CBBoard?

You should consider centering the hammer and sickle, and smoothing out the top-left shine (it looks pretty jagged).

I could see it being used for "Languages of Russia other than Russian" like maybe Ket or Chukchi or something.

That'd be rather silly, unless those people appreciate the soviet flag specifically themselves.

No sillier than using the :rus: icon, which is what we have now.
