Flags, Flags, Flags - 2 - Flag proposals only


Recommended Posts

Finding historical chinese flags not easy, there aren't many that would fit the game. So no wonder the devs left us with not so many to choose from.

Ming dynasti flag from year 1368-1644, however not sure if fictional or historical. Because i also read that Throughout majority of history China had no need for a national flag. The first Chinese national flag was adopted in 1889 during the Qing dynasty. (Those flags we already have in game).

And as for the flag below, "When the Qing dynasty purchased warships from the United Kingdom in 1862, Horatio Nelson Lay designed several naval flags based on the custom flag he designed.[9] These proposals were not recognized by the Qing dynasty government.[10]"  (source wikipedia)

So i guess neither of them would be historial accurate to implement in game, thought i would post them anyway.

the flags posted from my side are real flags from this period (1700 +). they mostly looks like the same but with different colors. the last one is a real chines pirate flag ( from Shap Ng Tsai).

you can see all those flags here at: https://collections.rmg.co.uk/collections.html#!csearch;authority=subject-90701;browseBy=collection

it's worth a visit.

My biggest suggestion is flags in the open world.

 

Also maybe some sort of pennant or signal flag to denote size and amount of fleet escorts. Use the scope to see nation, ship and fleet info with no menu box, but can click as usual.

Flag:  Westfriesland

The riddle of the five blocks
During the West Frisian Day 2008, Ina Broekhuizen-Slot received a West Frisian flag from Hoorn's mayor, Onno van Veldhuizen. In recent months it has been investigated whether this flag is the real West Frisian flag. Advice from flag experts was sought.
This research shows that the flag with the azure blue background and the two prominent lions plus five cubes in gold can be considered the real West Frisian flag. This flag reflects the old Frisian coat of arms, which was already used in the Middle Ages. That weapon appears in the Dutch Chronicle (1405-1409), recorded by Heraut Gelre. On that weapon are two prominent lions surrounded by white tokens. West Friesland has maintained this weapon, only the white blocks (tokens) became silver. The number was later reduced to five and the cubes, like the lions, turned golden. The flag is a reflection of the coat of arms on the shield.

Flag proposal: Noord-Brabant

Dimensions 2:3

532px-North_Brabant-Flag.svg.png

Noord-Brabant

264px-Noord-Brabant_in_the_Netherlands.s Noord -Brabant

 Map_of_the_Habsburg_Netherlands_by_Alexi 1514-1795

History
The North Brabant flag dates from the Middle Ages. Since the proclamation of the County of Leuven during the Lorraine period, the colors red and white appear in Brabant standards, flags and pennants. The Duchy of Brabant adopted these colors. During the Middle Ages and the centuries*  that followed, red and white were widely used. Ships in particular sail under a red and white flag, especially in Antwerp.

 

 

The flag fell into disuse at the end of the 18th century. The red and white checkered flag has only been the official flag of the province of Noord-Brabant since 1959.

course : https://www.wikiwand.com/nl/Vlag_van_Noord-Brabant

note*: This flag has the highest seniority in the netherlands (first on the left, so it's a important flag) 

 

final.

Flag : Amsterdam

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

proposal 2 

Before the current flag was adopted, a flag (albeit unofficial) was used that showed the city coat of arms in the center of a red-white-black horizontal tricolor. Such a design was already in use in the 17th century, but in Amsterdam history other designs in the colors red, black and white were also used. Sometimes the three Andrew's crosses were placed in the white orbit of the red-white-blue. [1] The Amsterdam flag is common in the street scene of Amsterdam. The Amsterdam football club AFC Ajax uses the Amsterdam flag as captain's armband.

Before 1975,  a tricolour red-white-black with the arms on the white stripe was used. Such a flag was already know since the 17th century.
