I decided to make some mockup icons for Duolingo courses that I'd like to see in the future. There is probably no chance of a UK English course coming into fruition, but I made the icon for fun anyways. I had to heavily simplify the Croatian flag, so sorry if it's missing any important details.

UPDATE : I fixed the spelling of Croatian, added the yellow gradient, and fixed the Gujarat flag.

Which one of the above courses would you be most excited for to learn?

Note : the number of learners displayed on the icons were mostly gathered from vote counts on various language suggestion posts. All of which, you can find gathered in the link below :

I'd love to see an Icelandic and Faroese course. Finding a good reliable learning resource for Faroese is relatively hard, and it would be a huge help if it were available on Duolingo.

Faroese is the official language of the Faroe Islands. It has around a population of 66,000 speakers. You can find out more in the link below.

These are awesome. Just wondering, how/what programs did you use to make these? I'm really interested in design of any sort so I'm asking solely out of curiosity.

I used Fire Alpaca, it's an art program that's free of cost. I also used the same program to draw my profile picture. Here's a link to their website.

This is a really interesting mockup. Did you make the monument images as well? They look really nice. I would be most interested in learning Icelandic and Finnish (out of this picture).

Also, you have the Austrian flag for Gujarati.

What do you mean by "monument images"?

Sorry about the flag mix-up. I meant to use the Gurajat flag, but I guess I forgot to add the white section at the bottom. Thanks for pointing that out.

By "monument" I mean the pictures of the buildings above the language name. Also, I think Duolingo would use the Indian flag for all Indian languages since it's the modern flag.

Yeah, I was pretty unhappy with my art, so I decided to leave the online art community and practice my art offline. I've been experimenting with various different art styles. I think I may settle with the style in my profile picture.

Although my art style has changed, I generally still draw the same things ( furries, more furries, and some tubby furries ), and I plan on making an art account once I get a good grasp of my new style. The big art style shift was far harder than I expected.

By the way, could you give me a link to your Khan Academy account? I'd like to see it.
