This is maybe more of a merchant flag, and I don't know to what extent it was flown from ships, but it definitely was, as per the third pic:

The Russian-American Company may not have historically operated in the Caribbean, but then again, neither did the Russian Empire. This is as close as history gets to the Russian Empire we have in-game. This flag should definitely be added in my opinion. The company was chartered by Paul I in 1799 if I remember correctly, so it is within the timeline of the game.

And so should some of these that I have mentioned before:

Will the next pack be strictly about the nations in game?

we could consider permanent long term historical allies as additions to nations.

Then Portuguese flags for Great Britain maybe. It would make Heth very happy :P

Both flags can be used for a Portuguese roleplay.

 

This one being used since 1707 so pretty much covers the entire period until 1830 and being the Absolutist flag during the civil war.

The Jack for the Absolutists could also make use of red rim

Liberal cause - very much end of the Naval Action period

500px-Flag_Portugal_sea_%281830%29.svg.png

There's a listed blue rimmed jack for naval pilots during the Liberal Wars ( civil war )  but it conflicts with with eht Absolutist jack as both sides used them.

You can see the flags being used in the following paintings

It is of note that the Liberal cause still used the Kingdom colours, full white field, but under the Liberal cause standard. The picture below shows it very well.

The one above is a detail of the painting about the Battle of Cape S. Vincent. The one below it is battle in the Tagus river.

This DLC could be first step to make in future clan flags. As well as it would be nice to make possible that if you capture an other ship with an other nation flag, you shoud be able to lower it and hoist it in your ship later (not beeing able to transfer it, for sure).

 

PD: The spanish trader flag, posted in the other post. Consider it. And it seems the independence catalonian flag.

Ich glaube diese Fahne gab es schon mal als Vorschlag aber es ist die Fahne der "Kurbrandenburgischen Marine"  also genau diese Vorfahren der Preussen die auch in der Karibik aktiv waren 

 

I think this flag was there before as a suggestion but it is the flag of the "Kurbrandenburgischen Marine" so exactly these ancestors of the Prussians who were also active in the Caribbean (St. Thomas)

West India Company had it's own lettering. EIC did not sail the Caribbean. GWIC is what we should have.

@Sella22 I see you chose your side...

You could have said the Septinsular Republic and chosen either the Russian or the French side :

Or even the French departments of Greece.

But no ! you chose this one :
