I must admit I don't understand this, because the colour scheme is the
same as the first one but with orange added.

As for the black cutoff, I always try to imagine what the flags would
look like in cloth. Perhaps there's some way of changing the shade of
blue so that the black doesn't hit you so hard?

I've uploaded a variation of your own design, which I've tweaked a
little. :-)
