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.

I've come across more sources on historical Russian flags, not that I can make much sense of them since I don't read a word of Russian unfortunately.

 

The three last flags here should all make it into the DLC someday.

 

   

  

 

 The middle flag here for some reason has both the Russian tricolor and the Jerusalem flag. Another cut:

I did now find several sources showing the Russian Galley flag from the DLC, which I thought I hadn't seen before, but must have just overlooked or forgotten:

 

Here are some more versions of the Tartar flag, including another Tartar flag with an owl:

It is the coat of arms of the royal house of Sweden.

It is most likely a very crude drawing of the Coat of Arms of the then current (1805) King of Sweden, Gustav IV Adolf:

380px-Armoiries_du_Roi_Gustave_IV_Adolph

 

If you look at the colours and shapes, except for the mid circle heraldry being mirrored on the flag, it much better matches the CoA of Gustav IV Adolf than the Greater Coat of Arms of Sweden. The Greater CoA has a cape in the background, which the flags lack. At the time, the CoA of the king would be synonymous with the CoA of the country.

It is weird, because in your quote I see some images are missing, but when I go back to my post I can still see all of the flags I think.

Interestingly the sites that are not loading their images seem to be statehistory.ru and another .ru-domain.

I will save them all and upload them directly to the forum instead.

Does anyone have a source or origin on this flag? Objections? (it was proposed to us in 2014)

No one would object in a more flag variety.

Personally Im eager to see ingame some of my proposals for new spanish flags. Please check them.

Some nations have a lot while others only a few. That is not fair.

Objections? 

Yes.

It looks like a crude deviantart-project. Someone took this flag texture or a similar one:

quick_shot___swedish_flag_by_yahoozinho_

cropped it and pasted a the CoA of Gustav Vasa (dead 1560), as well as the 3 crowns symbol and rampant lions from the modern CoA of Sweden over it.

EDIT:

To be clear, the king whose CoA is pasted in the middle died in 1560 (way before the timeline of this game). The Blue and Yellow flag of Sweden was first described in laws of Sweden a few years later. There is a possibility of timeline overlap, but there is no possibility that they would mix and match the CoAs with the flag into such an aberration.

There are two versions of his monogram (as with many of the danish royals of the period), here they both are used in flags on paintings. First one is Christiansborg in current day Ghana, Africa. Second one is of a Danish brig that I fail to remember the name of.

Here are the monograms used in other places:

To the left, the monogram used on a cannon (note: the crown is missing here, it was never missing on flags). The right is a third version of Christian VII's monogram (Christian Rex VIII - never used on flags to my knowledge).

This is the monogram on the wall of Fredriksten Fortress, Halden, Norway. I go there almost every summer:

Danish half-a-shilling:
