Thanks for solution.


Select your flag then go to

effect > warp > arc

From there, you can edit the amount of bend as well.


Place the shape you need as a path above the flags in the stacking order. Select the flags and the shape. Then choose Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Top Object from the menu.

    Howabout ofsetting the arc for centerline and then make a brush out og the flags? – joojaa Jul 20 at 20:24
  • That may work too @Joojaa - but you know that :) There's a few possibilities if the flags are vector.. I just used the raster image in the question as a quick example. – Scott Jul 20 at 21:25

Manually draw circles using Path > Offset path and create a three layer circle if the flag has three layers. Then make this shape you mentioned (segment of the circle) and a clipping mask with it.
