Current one but in red:

For the definition "flying the Red" 

Among pirates, flying a red flag signaled "no quarter" to any ship’s crew that resisted, but guaranteed the safety of all aboard if the ship surrendered without a fight. Some pirates in the 18th century have flown red variations of the traditional pirate flag, the Jolly Roger.

Среди пиратов, летающих красный флаг сигнализируется  "No Quarter " на любой экипаж судна, которые сопротивлялись, но гарантировали безопасность всех на борту судна, если судно сдался без боя. Некоторые пираты в XVIII веке летали красными вариациями традиционного пиратского флага, весёлого Роджера.

Personally Pirates should have a choice Between Black and Red background regardless of picture.

Maybe for achievements unlocked for example «No home port», stay 100 days at sea without dying, reward; *insert flag name here*. And for an even tougher one of the same challenge gain it in a other color as for pirates for example red.

Yes. 
We want to make some flags to be given as rewards or rare loot. Just like Le Requin and Hercules could be obtained in tutorials or rare open world events.

Prussia itself does not have much flag options to offer in the given time frame, but we can try some of these:

Flag of Prussia (1466-1772)

Flag_of_Prussia_(1466-1772).svg

A bit modified version:

unknown_prussian_flag_by_trustnoidiot-d6

Free State of Prussia - Flag (1918–1933) (out of time frame sadly, but looks nice and not Nazi-like):

1200px-Flag_of_Prussia_(1918%E2%80%93193

 

Came across these, but authentication or source are unknown:

404.jpg

A4C2092108ABA4662B7886450D6F3B586304A8FD

 

Much better and reasonable option for Prussia would be an addition of other German city-states flags, Hanseatic League etc.:

I wouldn't mind seeing also combined eagles of Brandenburg and Prussia:

Regarding prussia:

 

Koenig_v_preussen.jpg

Ship: Merchant ship König von Preußen  built in London in 1750 for the king of Prussia  and the  "Preußisch Asiatischen Kompanie" (1751)

Kurbrandenburgi_Navy.jpg

Brandenburg Navy which can be considered prussian.

The Brandenburg Navy was the navy of the Margraviate of Brandenburg in Germany from the 16th century to 1701, when it became part of the Prussian Navy

dbrand2.gif(thats the naval flag 1657–1701)

 

image.png.618a1e8115b0948cbeedb7c126aad364.png

I guess that could be the flags on the masts with just the cross changed for the eagle. But couldnt find any better pictures maybe someone else know a better source?

image.png.29d73de4013b38f1d41aa0dbbf17f8e7.png

Prussian merchant marine flag ( 1823-1863 )

 

de_stral.gif

Maritime flag of stralsund(1695-1815)

 

220px-Stralsund,_Marinemuseum,_Flagge_de

Stralsund-Navy War flag  1816

 

(Stralsund is the place where prussia started to build their first schooners)

Why those flags should be added?:

There are a lot of german clans ingame that already use the name "The Brandenburg Navy" or love to play as merchants guess lot of them would like to see such flags added.

Here is a collection of drawings of common Venetian flags housed at the Venetian naval history museum.

And Here are a couple of bonus flags from other sources:

As a fun bonus fact for those who are still reading this: Venice was also the only nation to frequently use velvet in their flags because they had ridiculous amount of money, although velvet flags were mainly in use over the 16th and 17th century they were still employed as part of parades and for prestige value, with the majority of naval jacks being made no different from any other flag of the period, unless they were the flags for the Bucentaur.

I think what you're looking for is the Kroaz du, in its marine version :

 

1212838344_kroazdu.jpg.917c4b00b7ac3ce6f98a8fdb71efabf2.jpg

 

that flag was before 1532, or the plain hermine flag :

 

1725150104_hermineplain.jpg.3fc56ae8fda307d8ca010166cc1a151d.jpg

 

that saw some use after 1532, i think the last one used by amirauté de bretagne was this one :

 

Banniel_Breizh_3.1_svg.png.93c77f018b4b1e31c906f139128737a1.png

 

That was used up to 1790, when the amirautés de bretagne ceased to exist. it can be related to the flag of the ville de Nantes that exist in two versions :

 

FRVNANTES.png.6411f96d77924551539015751b632de5.png

 

This version with black cross should be from before britanny became french in 1532, while this version :

 

Drapeau_de_Nantes_svg.thumb.png.701a2d54b7c88c8cd3a14f84874400a9.png

 

This version has the french white cross over the britanny black cross, post 1532... But both versions are in use today.
