heres another experiment with cloth simulation using wind to simulate a realistic Nishaan Sahib(Flag) animation. I experimented with the diferent values for the cloth to get something reasonably realistic and then i found that if i animated the wind gizmo there was more variation in the simulation. Click read more for the video.
I using an old insignia of the khalsa and a blue colour. It is interesting to note that traditionally the khalsa flag did not feature the current popular Sikh Khanda insignia, but rather variations of sword, kataar(punch dagger) and bowl to represent Degh Tegh Fateh. An interesting article on the subject by Ranjit Singh ‘freed’ can be found here . I am hoping that if i can find enough source material that i can reproduce some of the old decorated and bordered Nishaans. Video is below.
