    Just compare them... those HRE = lol
    And polish = majestic

    It is not cause i am pole. Those two headed eagles are just looking wrong.
    Actually, all of them are awful in close up. GBR's flag is the best. Lithuania's flag is also not bad with a knight.

    I find I become attached to the flag of any country I happen to be playing. I see it, and I go, "That's me!" and I get this warm happy feeling inside. No other flag is as cool as the flag of whatever country I'm playing... at the moment, Venice's winged lion on a blue backing beats y'all.

    With that said, I do find Oman's flag a little plain. I mean, there's no symbols, stripes, dots, nothing. Just... all...red.

    And Poland's flag is half red. Well, at least the top part can be used for practical purposes in the battlefield when the communists attack.

    Well it is red under white, and red mean blood - i would like to consider it blood of our enemies... but it is considered our blood splited for defence of homeland, and white is consider scar(as scars are more pale than the rest of skin)... well at least now, i dunno how it was before. Maybe white was for white eagle... a scar that are left after fights.

    Well whatever. Red is under white eagle i say it. So it is us winning with our enemies XD...

    It wins the distinction of being the only large country in Europe to be divided up by neighbours before the fight even started. This occurred for a total of 4 times and all other countries are tied in second place with a count of zero.

    Much smaller countries like Netherlands and Finland had survived against similarly strong array of power.

    This one is way better than the one in the game.

    I like this flag too, except the diagonal cross is not consistent with Denmark's flag.

    Well maybe they should include this flag in the patch? As it is much much better.

    If that was the in-game Scandinavian flag I would probably never form Scandinavia playing as Norway ever again.

    Ah ok. I didn't know Norway had a different flag.

    I wonder that a Poland-Lithuania would look like in the modern era. Maybe like this?


    This seems better, with the knight chasing down the bird:


    I wonder how Finland's flag can fit into the Scandinavian nation's flag.

    That's consistent, since a modern PLC will have no monarchs and crowns.

    Hmm... maybe joining in the flags of Ukraine and Belarus would make the flag a bit more colourful. I mean, Minsk and Kiev were also major cities within the original pre-partitioned PLC territory.
