Hehe no I don't think it'll get rejected, but you'll probably get an earfull about it being on white ;)

Nevertheless, cute title and clever design :D

yeah but the colors dont match anything too well, i tried blues and it was so gaudy, i tried red, but too much emphasis on ussr/russia, (yellow on red was picked for the flag already)
