Have been flying this flag for a couple of days commemorating the anniversary of the Nanking Peace Treaty that went into effect on June 26, 1843. Among the conditions, Hong Kong was ceded to Queen Victoria’s government. This flag is especially poignant these days, as Hong Kong citizens take to the streets. #vexillology#vexillophile#britishhongkong#反送中#crowncolony#hongkong
La Nouvelle-Orléans, in 1718, founded by the French Mississippi Company, under the direction of Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville, on land inhabited by the Chitimacha. It was named for Philippe d'Orléans, Duke of Orléans, who was Regent of the Kingdom of France at the time. His title came from the French city of Orléans. #neworleans#lanouvelleorleans#vexillology#vexillophile
A Bandeira de Roraima.
A bandeira do Estado de Roraima na Praça do Centro Cívico de Boa Vista.
A bandeira roraimense é um retângulo 14x20 dividido em três faixas diagonais no sentindo esquerda para direita e de baixo para cima; sendo a de cima de cor azul turquesa, a do meio branca e a de baixo verde bandeira. Na parte inferior, uma fina linha vermelha atravessa a bandeira de ponta a ponta. Apoiada sobre a linha e ao centro da bandeira, está uma grande estrela dourada cuja dimensão ultrapassa os limites da faixa branca.
O verde bandeira representa as densas matas e cerrados. O branco, a paz. O azul turquesa, o céu e os puros ares do Estado. A linha vermelha representa a Linha do Equador, que corta a parte sul de Roraima. A cor dourada, as riquezas minerais. A estrela em si é uma referência à WEZEN - DELTA do Cão Maior, a estrela oficial do Estado e que o representa na bandeira nacional.
Flying the ensign of British Honduras today, in recognition of Belize’s Independence Day. This flag flew for the final time 37 years and one day ago.

[Actual Flag, not my design]
Okay, I know I haven't posted in a while but I had to post the Pride Flag!! From today, Sept 6th, 2018, it is no longer illegal to be in a homosexual relationship, in my country, India! The gay Pride Flag isn't one of my favourites (bit too busy for my taste), but the idea it symbolises and the cultural power it has gained over the past few years makes it truly iconic! #loveislove 🏳️🌈
Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans. The Revolutionary War was a tragic fracture of the English-speaking world, but our shared language, culture, and history has once again found common cause, and healed many historical wounds. Today I am flying the “Betsy Ross flag,” in commemoration of 1776. God Bless this empire of liberty!
Pulled a real highlight from the collection for flag day.
This is a stenciled flag from the USS De Haven (DD-727), a Sumner-class destroyer in WWII, the Korean War and the Vietnam war. This was a bring back from a sailor who was on the ship during WWII. I purchased it directly from him many years ago and he claimed this is one of the flags that flew on the ship during its WWII service. The destroyer (and probably this flag) were there for the invasion of Iwo Jima and Okinawa (among others) and were present in Tokyo Bay for the signing of the surrender. She (the ship) received 11 battle stars among many other awards.
Hand sewn stars. Bull Dog bunting. 5x8’. Dated 1943. Double Stamped.
A very special flag. *Shot taken while flag was being unfolded. It was respectfully re-folded and stored properly afterwards.

How flags are combined?
Most flags are based on a simple formula of colors, symbols and layouts.
Which country's #flags is your favorite?
Mine's a toss-up between Bhutan or Seychelles

#throwback2017 Another impressive interior space: the Kennedy Center's Hall of Nations. The flag of every nation with which the US has diplomatic relations hangs here. Nice place to sit and chat with a stranger during intermission.
Taking a break from the flags of the English-speaking world this week to recognize the centenary of Finland’s independence. On this day in 1917, the Finnish people declared their independence from Soviet Russia with the following words: “The people of Finland feel deeply that they cannot fulfil their national duty and their universal human obligations without a complete sovereignty. The century-old desire for freedom awaits fulfilment now; The People of Finland has to step forward as an independent nation among the other nations in the world.” My wife’s family comes from proud Finnish stock; her great-grandparents came from Vaasan-Laani and her grandmother spoke Finnish at home. This week, the siniristilippu will fly here in celebration.
