Best European flags? (Current or Historical)

Post by CptCrape on Sat Jul 08, 2017 10:05 pm

Some of my favorites are Prussia, the UK, Two Sicilies, Spain (all of its flags look great, and the Russian Tsardom and Empire.

I really like the Austro-Hungarian flag. It just has a nice feel, like they smashed the Hungarian flag and Austrian flag together to make one better flag. It also might be my soft spot for Franz Joseph I and his sweet facial hair but hey that's just me.

I really like the Bavarian and Austrian flags with their respective coats of arms.

I've always loved Austria's flag! In part because of its simplicity and I also believe it's one of the earliest flags that are still around to this very day.
France's current flag is awesome just out of the ridiculous amount of history behind it (not to mention the ludicrous amount of times it has changed over the centuries).
I totally second your thoughts on Prussia. As in most things, Prussia is number one.
Other honorable mentions are the modern flags of Greece, Georgia, and Macedonia.

He did have some mighty nice facial hair, didn't he? The 1800s were such a golden time for facial hair-- truly a lost art...

I have a fondness for the Imperial German Kreigsflagge as evident from my avatar. I also like the Quebec provincial flag, and my own Ohio State Flag (due to it's very interesting shape). I'm also fond of the German Flag with the coat of arms. Other favorites include: Japanese Battle flag, Blood Stained Banner (CSA), Austria Hungary, Taiwan/Republic of China, Hong Kong, and the Serbian flag.

Edit: Whoops, forgot this was European specific while typing. My apologies!

Love the Byzantine Palaiologos coat of arms.

Also a suck for the British flag. Combining all of those flags into one really looks cool.
Speaking of combining flags, Austria-Hungary would have to be my 3rd favorite.

I bought the Prussian flag and it's hanging right behind me along with the Russian Tzarist flag.

Though I feel you're just trying to be edgy, I do genuinely like the design of the Nazi flag. Though of course the party behind is quite bad.

The Nazi flag achieves what it sets out to do, that's why its so great.

The Danish flag just because of how simple and recognizable it is. Same goes for the other
Scandinavian flags, though I chose the Danish because it started the trend

I've always thought the Teutonic order's flag was very good. It has enough going on so that it doesn't seem uninspired, but simple enough to not be an eye sore

The flag of Spain along with its shield is precious, especially with the four quarters, symbols of the ancient kingdoms of Castile, Leon, Aragon and Navarre
