Flags have an important political, national and cultural dimension that can not be dismissed. They can invoke pride, fear and jealousy, and have been used for thousands of years, from simple banners for a minor noble to highly ornate and decorated standards for military units to lead them to war.

This page will show off the history of the various flags that have been used in the French Trafalgar, British Waterloo Timeline, as recognized by the (in-universe) International Association of Vexilology.



Assiniboia's flag, nicknamed the "Figure Eight," is a symbol of the nations Identity as a nation founded by the Metis, those with both Native American and European heritage. The Infinity symbol in the centre is to represent the Metis people and culture, that they will go on forever. It can also be seen as the joining of two cultures (European and Native) into one. In more recent years, the symbol has been expanded to symbolize all of Assiniboia. The Green background represents the natural resources and beauty of Assiniboia. Other colours of the flag, including blue and red have been used.


Quebec's flag, known as the "Fleurdelisé," has undergone numerous changes since it was first created in 1897 as a provincial flag when it was part of Canada, before a new flag was created for the Quebecois side of the Canadian Civil War.

The US flag, called "Old Glory" or the "Stars and Stripes" is one of the most interesting flags created in history, and is a symbol of peace, freedom and liberty around the world. Now composed of thirteen stripes to represent the original Thirteen Colonies of the United States at the time of Independence, and a blue field on the upper left canton has 30 stars, representing the thirty states of the union. The following is all the official flags of the US, as recognized by the IAV.





Australasia, as the home of the House of Windsor and the last vestige of the British Monarchy, has taken its role as head of the new Commonwealth of Nations very seriously, and it's reflected on the flag that is currently used.



Since the French Revolution, France has only used one flag: the infamous Tri-color, which has become the basis for revolutionary flags around the world. Since the Sorelist rise to power in the 1930s, however, the flag has been seen as a more dictatorial and oppressive symbol, leading to a rejection of tri-colors during the Tri-Powers Conflict and Dual Powers Conflict.

While the Tri-color is still used by civil authorities, additions of symbols and messages on the flag has changed the meaning and purpose for over 200 years.

Germany and German States

During the Napoleonic Wars, Germany was primarily a language of dozens of small central European states and barely a geographical construct, much less an actual nation. However, under the leadership of Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck, the Kingdom of Prussia became the center of a German Empire. Although it faced defeat in the Second Global War, it wasn't until the aftermath of the Third Global War that Germany once more ceased to exist, with France taking over much of the land and the rest becoming the Protectorate of Prussia. In 2011, West Germany was established from land that was part of France, re-establishing a German state after almost 70 years.

United Kingdom and the British Isles

The United Kingdom, although dismantled in 1945 with the end of the Third Global War, had one of the most visible flags ever designed, at one point flying over a fifth of the worlds surface. In the aftermath of the Third Global War, the flag has been seen, along with the German Swastika, as a symbol of evil. Since 1945, three other countries have existed on the British Isles: England, Scotland and Ireland. In most countries, flying the Union Jack is either illegal, such as in Ireland, or frowned upon, as in Scotland. England, holding onto the idea of the unification of the British Isles, still allows the flag to be flown.
