    I honestly wish someone could explain the reason for the 'Nordic Cross flag'.
    Because I don't know the reason, I assume either A, they wanted to impress the rest of Europe and wanted to trade with them, or B, the monarchies thought they could benefit from it. I know this sounds simplistic, but its not something I've ever heard discussed...

    Here is my take on what a wartime Nordic Cross Flag could be for the Afrikaner, The Insignia were the cross intersects is the Castle of Good Hope and to me represents the strife faced by our ancestors since they landed on the southern tip of Africa. It was also a major part of the SADF's insignia, and can be seen as a sign of Afrikaner fortitude and dissipline.

    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".

    Interesting idea.
    The Normans are trying to raise a new Nordic Cross flag, to emphasise their heritage.



    Mouvement normand (Norman Movement) is a political organisation in France that campaigns for autonomy of Normandy. Unlike many regionalist groupings in France, it rejects "separatism" and underlines the view that people of Normandy are one of the constituent nationalities that made up the French nation. They also see the people of Normandy as direct inheritors of authentic Normans and also the results of their overseas exploits.

    And Estonians, and they are not even Germanic.

    The white dragon was one of the symbol of the Anglo-Saxons.

    Y Ddraig Goch (The Red Dragon) came about from the story Lludd and Llefelys from Mabinogion. The story told of the red dragon fighting the invading white dragon, the red dragon's shrieks of pain caused bad things to happen like women to miscarry. The King of Britain - Lludd speaks to his brother, Llefelys about the fighting dragons Llefelys tells him to dig a pit and fill it with mead, the dragons drink the mead and fall asleep and Lludd imprisons them.

    Was there a flag for any of the Angles, Saxons, or Jutes before this one came about? Also, I don't want to some like a scandophile or something similar, but I do think the Northern English flag looks pretty cool. It's like the reverse of the Danish flag, which would make sense considering the supposed Viking element found especially in the north of England (Although I guess I'm not very wont to love the idea of a Christian symbol representing what I perceive as a pre-Christian people).

    Edit: I should mention I am pretty happy with the already-there flags of England and Britain I just kind of had an interest in that dragon flag. Also I don't know if I really would care about a pan-germanic flag either.
    There was never any dragon flag used to represent the Anglo-Saxons. The kingdom of Wessex, which later conquered all of England, used a wyvern (a dragon with two legs) as its symbol, but other Anglo-Saxon kingdoms had different symbols - Mercia had a double-headed eagle, for example (and in Pagan times a boar).

    The idea that the English as a whole can be represented by a white dragon comes from Welsh mythology - it has nothing to do with the English themselves.

    The current leadership of the BRD and our political class is just sick and traiterous. The proper flag for them would be: Bananenrepublik.



    I could live with the proposed flag of 1919:



    Our connection to the other Germanic countries would be more visible: Iceland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark have flags of the same style.

    The Fasces, though a symbol of strenght through unity, is Roman in origin.
    Why use foreign symbolism to define a native identity? It is as much alien as this one:

    Is there a Germanic symbol with the same meaning that would be easily identifiable to the public?
