Create a stylized skyline of Pyongyang, North Korea

What's your vision?
*This is a bit of a sensitive design, so please read my 'Other' paragraph below* I am looking for a mug design as a gift and memento from a recent trip to North Korea that myself and better-half were on in 2016. I am looking for a cartoonish style that mimics the Starbucks 'You Are Here' City Mug collection (https://starbucks-city-mugs.com/you-are-here-series/). This style usually has about a half-dozen bold and contrasting colours, and in particular I would like the Red/White/Blue colours of their flag to be included (white probably as negative space for a highlight). The background of the design should be transparent/white. There is a very distinctive pastel color pallete used for their apartment/office buildings that might be helpful as well if you google 'pyongyang skyline'. In general, I am looking at a collage of key buildings that represent the city and culture of Pyongyang. I have attached some photos of specific iconic buildings I would like to try to include in the design: Grand People's Study House Juche Tower Ryugyong Hotel Monument to Party Founding Statues on Mansudae Monument Kim il Sung Square (the upper part of the building showing the soldier and the flag from the north/south sides respectively) The flowers in the attached photo "flower example" are called Kim il Sungia, and could be perhaps used as highlights/filler alongside building sides. Some green mountains in the background at some point would be a nice highlight as well (see 'treed mountain example'). I have attached a pseudo sketch of one idea I had put together with my (very poor) photoshop skills. I am not sure whether the portrait above is going to end up in the final version. I hope this doesn't come across as too specific, I am very much open to ideas. Please feel free to research and find other interesting monuments/buildings. I am of course more than open to questions, etc. The design should fit a rectangle of 8cm high x 27cm wide.
I understand this is a bit of a sensitive area at this time. I am not looking for a design that makes any implications/judgements, or paints the country or its people in any way that could be considered negative or aggressive. I am looking for highlights that represent the history, culture and architecture. Thank you for taking the time to view my brief.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their cup or mug.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Burnaby Williams collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
