Flags, Flags, Flags - 2 - Flag proposals only

Recommended Posts

I came across a new source on historical danish flags and ensigns:

http://internationalcongressesofvexillology-proceedingsandreports.yolasite.com/resources/20th-Stockholm/ICV20 Engene.pdf

It had some new and more detailed pictures of the flags of Danish trading companies, not yet included in the DLC:

If you're not gonna add the Portugal nation, then atleast add the Portuguese flag into the Great Britan faction so we can use them as an allie, like they were in real life. The Anglo-Portuguese alliance lasted a long time, probably even stands till this day, there were a lot of battles that Portugal went and did for the British, we deserve to be mentioned in the game! Portugal was active in the West Indies at that time, just not as much as the other nations, but so were a lot of nations that we currently have in-game.

Suggestion @admin: Can you please make the flag images more sharper contrast? Some of the Dutch flags look not just faded, but the edges on the emblems are so blocky and not crisp looking. The edge lines on the Willem of Orange flag is janky and doesn't seem to line up with the coloring lines on the back of the flag.

Also suggestion for clan flags: If we will not be able to create a complete flag of our own colors and letterings and emblems, would it be possible to have pre-designed historical ensigns that we could attach to current flags? i.e. Say a white flag with only the Royal Dutch emblem in the center or corner of our choosing? Or say the Willem of Orange flag with a prince coat of arms in the location of our choosing? Like image below (containing the Prince's Crest) This would allow more variants allowing Clans to differentiate themselves from others. OH, and it would be awesome if in the clan warehouse it would show the flag of the creators choosing.

I"m kinda surprised the Betsy Ross flag of 1776 isn't in the US collection.

I sitll think some Barbery flags would be nice for the pirates.

Even better suggestion: It would be awesome to show the Clan's flag flying over the ports they own. It would be like the Governor's flag, as nearly every port had it's own gov flag.
