There is a danish flag with the monogram of Christian V, the king of Denmark until 1699. Is this even within the game period?

It is 1680-1820.

On the topic of flags... Will we ever be able to see flags outside of instances, in the OW? Having every ship have a slightly distinct look to it would add tons of life to the feel of this game.

Just a question:

Could the long extra wait we have to endure to get the flag dlc, be that devs have to consider carefully wether to stick with the impossible nations or not, before releasing the flag patch. Considering the flag DLC is so far from what we have been showed, made to fit with all the current nations, but the "Impossible nations" are still an experiment. I imagine if the DLC is released then it would be hard to remove the impossible nations later, because it could affect the contents of the Flag DLC.

The more nations and flags, the better. Still waiting for the Portuguese...

Why do we not get the flag with the monogram of Christian VII, the (mad) king after which the flagship in-game was named and who reigned 1766-1808, smack in the middle of the game period.

 

 

More flags will be added in the future. Including the mad king flag :) - thanks for suggestion - keep them coming

Nice.

I'm certain you've looked at these already, but there are some that I think might be worth including for Russia (marked in red):

My Russian is non-existant, so they might not be totally off, but as I understood it, the top row of both pictures show actual flags and ensigns, while the other ones are all just signal flags.

Source btw is Книга Устав морской о всем что касается доброму управлению, в бытности флота на море by Peter the Great.  Pages 309 and 311 of the scans kept by the Presidential Library: https://www.prlib.ru/item/336980

Some other flags drawings and flags:

Danish flags:

But they don't look like typical heraldic leopards (what we typically would call lions). I was thinking they might be foxes or mongoose, but I can't confirm this. I find no written sources so far that describe these flags of the Danish west indies.

The flag that you have included for the Danish West Indies looks to me more like what I've seen of the flag of the Danish East India trading company though. Here is another flag of Danish East India (Tranquebar).

Denmark used one flag consistently - but we can add some of the norway flag as well. 
Please if you have any great references for danish - norway naval flags from 1700 to 1840 periods -please post in this topic

The problem with the Norwegian flag, is that for as long as we were part of "Danmark-Norge" our flag was the Danish flag. Then we briefly had an adapted Danish flag with the Norwegian state lion/leopard with an axe (the flag you already included in your montage). After that Norway got it's own flag:

246px-Flag_of_Norway,_state_with_proport

But this flag is technically a Swedish flag during this period, as we were forced into a union with Sweden.

For the longest period of Norway's union with Sweden, the flag was known as "sildesalaten" in Norwegian (herring salad). Though I think this was after 1844, so outside the scope in question.

For historical reasons the Swedish-Norwegian Union Flag ("Sildesalaten") could be included as a Swedish flag I guess. Though it would annoy me a lot seeing it flown from Swedish vessels. 

I would like to see the Norwegian flag that is similar to the current one as one of the Danish-Norwegian flags in-game, even though it would in some way defy logic, as it was not even invented yet while Norway was part of the union with Denmark.

@admin for the nations that used square flags dedicated for merchant ships and pointy flags that were used for warships is this something you've thought about implementing?

Yes... don't forget the Portuguese, the more the Nations the better. Then the Portuguese can play as Portuguese.

Perhaps the Baochuan in as DLC? That Beautiful gigant of a Chinese Treasuire Junk. A massive hulk indeed.

I just noticed something: 

These plates are both labelled "Plate 3". There's Plate 1, Plate 3, Plate 3 and Plate 4.

By the way, the French flag called Para mar et terra was the flag of the Compagnie Franche de la marine which was the equivalent of the Marines... those were soldiers not sailors and so it wasn't a navy flag.

Shh, that flag is dope me want.

I could consider buying this dlc but it bother me that if i don't have the prolific forger one, i get much less value from it as i am limited to my nation's flag and i know i will not use more than one or two of them.

If by joining a foreign nation in battle i could use a predefined banner from this nation it would be great.

Hello Devs,

this is my contribution for more flag variety for Sweden:

1.) Flag of Pomerania: Pomerania was under Swedish rule from 1648-1821, before Prussia occupied Pomerania.

2.) Flag Kurland-Semgallia: Courland was occupied by Sweden during the Great Northern War (1700-1721) and was even administered by a Swedish governor. Defining the legitimate claims of Poland, Saxony and Russia on flags of Courland I propose the multicolor-flag or the simple ducal flag red-white.

Beautiful flags, but we might want to be careful with nations who were occupied by our Main nations.  Consider how many nations have been occupied by the Brits.

Hello,

the two land masses were integral parts of Sweden, Pomerania even 250 years ...

By the way ... the Swedish Kurland squadron (HREKK) exists here at naval action since March 2015 ...! Together with HRE-Clan, these are the oldest Swedish clans at Naval Action!

Greetings!

Look at Belgium for an example.  Using your arguement, the flags of Lotharingia, Flanders and Brabant, should be available to both the Netherlands or Spanish nations.  I'm not saying its completely wrong, but I'm wondering if it can be taken too far.  On your side of the issue, I would very much prefer the Scottish Royal flag to be available instead of that boring British stuff.

Exactly. And the swedish flags we have atm will not motivate me to buy the DLC for my Swedish account. I bought it for my US account because I like the rattlesnake flag. Jakob Kettlers suggested flags look great. I would like to see them and the HRE flag havelock suggested for Sweden.

I think you've hit the nail on the head.  People have to be motivated to fly the flag and if it's boring, or does not represent their particular nationality/culture, then they feel its wasted.  I just wonder how far Devs are willing to go down this path.  It's definitely a money maker for them if they expand it.  Might get somewhat confusing in battle though....
