    What is the Official Pan Germanic Flag?

    I am curious if there ever has been a flag representing Germania and/or Germanics?

    If we are picking one, I would like to suggest the Black Sun.

    It would be difficult, in my own opinion, given the vastness of what is "Germanic". In this I mean the difference between the Germans and the English, the Norwegians and the Germans, et cetera. They may be similar but they are not the same and should not be treated as such.

    Inherently Germanic colours are: Black/Dark Blue, Red/Orange, White. If someone wanted to make a flag of that, fine...but I still prefer it the way it is. Each one of our nations has their own flag, that has to be enough. It's not like we're all the same, even though we Germanics as a whole are obviously very similar in our culture.

    There is a need because meta-ethnicity will be the only thing that really counts in the future, and because the traditional flags of Germanic national states are exactly that: flags of originally Germanic, now deconstructed multi-ethnic, states. After the divorce between nationhood and states, we need to gather under and identify with the same banner.

    After reading this, Vingolf, I now believe again that we need something for future reference. I don't think it's really up to us to create it though. eyes:

    Personally, I think the answer can be easily found in History.

    Generally speaking, the Holy Roman Empire encompassed most of what is deemed as traditionally "Germanic" lands, shown here:



    So, if you're going to have something for Germanic Peoples, I think it's the best it can get:



    However, if you're going to be fully accurate about this, given by the simple movement of the Visigoths and Ostrogoths (and even, their predecessors from Scandinavia, the Got/Goths), THIS is the only accurate flag to encompass them all:

    There are Germanic "elements" throughout much of the world... so far reaching has the influence of the mighty Germanics been. There have been Germanic influences and "elements" left behind in India and other former members of the British Empire too (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:B...Empire1921.png)... should we deem India as Germanic? What about Kenya or Papua New Guinea? Indonesia was once part of the Dutch Empire... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ImageutchEmpire.png Shall we embrace the Indonesians as our own too?

    And I think calling the elements in Northern Italy "significant" is stretching things a bit.... culturally, racially and behaviourally so-called "Pandanians" are overwhelmingly Romanic and clearly have more in common with other Italians than they ever will with native Germanics....

    Do these people look Germanic to you?

    Well, someone seems to have ruined it, so it's going to be scrapped, for at least the next 2000 years.

    I'm (obviously) not a fan of that, but I do like the Prussian Flag:



    And, the flag of the Hochmeisters des Deutschen Ordens:



    Does anyone know what flags (if any) the Got/Goths/Visigoths/Ostrogoths flew?
