"Sensible Flags" is a graphical mod with more than a thousand (1000!) new flags and two main goals in mind:

1) Ensure historically accurate flags that still look pleasant.

2) Replace vanilla's nonsensical flags with options more fit to the 1936-1948 timeframe.

That said, feel free to propose flags you find around and think would be a cool (and accurate) addition!

The U.S. flag for divisions is a bit blurry and ends up looking like the ROC flag. I don't have any other mods installed other than yours. Everything else looks great tho, and runs perfectly

@steel I cannot add it without breaking compatibility with achievements.

Do note the black-gold-red flag is a REPUBLICAN/anti-monarchist flag - from both the 1848 and 1919 revolutions, then post-1945 again.

If you have a mod that restores a constitutional monarchy in Germany, keeping the imperial red-white-black flag is actually more historically accurate.

can you make the german democractic flag the german empire flag as a option? its because i subcribed to a mod that makes the kaiser the ruler of democractic germany as a constiutonal monarch and it hurts my eyes to see the black red and gold flag so please

can you make the german democractic flag the german imperial flag

I get you, but "people" also like to have the Rising Sun flag of the Imperial Japanese Navy as the flag of Japan, even though that is grossly ahistorical and completely nonsensical.

I assume you refer to the Austro-Hungarian civil ensign as the alternative. It was flown in consulates and merchant ships, and nobody considered it a "national flag". Thank God Wikipedia no longer uses it after almost two decades impressing the wrong idea on millenials.

I would do the toggle if I could, but unfortunately it would break mods. What I can do is teach you how to replace just these flags on your own mod folder.

The problem is people like to have the Austro-Hungarian flag as it. How about theres a setting to be able to toggle between Austrian Empire flag and Austro-Hungarian flag?
Enriador  [author] Mar 19 @ 7:09pm 
Why though? The Habsburg flag is the closest thing we have to an Austro-Hungarian flag, since it was widely used in both halves of the empire and as the main banner in both international representation and propaganda. https://imgur.com/a/DYCflYL

Could you make the Austro-Hungarian Flag not the Austrian Empire flag?

@Kipper But that should be the normal 48-star flag, and the same flag as the one that shows up in the top left corner of the screen.

Are you using this mod? I ask because other mods add a different flag (more often a "war flag") for divisions.

@Enriador The flag used for the US infantry troops.
