Galatan and Gallian Naval flags

The Galatan National Library is proud to acknowledge the Emperor vs Elector community to have increased its holdings with two new flag plates, partly related to Sea Warfare. As previously announced, the first one contains the Galatan Navy and Merchant Ensigns, as well as their corresponding Land Flags, for the initial period of this Imagi-Nation -i.e. since 1713.

This is not all. There are also good news for all those whose Imagi-Nation has a French-like kingdom either as a friend or foe, for the second flags plate is devoted to the Gallian Ensigns and Flags.

What are such flags intended for? Well, it is commonly said that a single image is worth more than a thousand words, so that please take a glance to the picture below. This one corresponds to a Hispannic/Asturian/Scandalusian/Sepharadan just scratch-built brig or bark, so that her flags do not correspond to any of both plates, but to a third one instead -which is already finished, but I'm waiting for the names poll to finish before having it published...

BTW, if curious about the ship herself, please look at the pictures just posted on my painting blog (sorry it's in Catalan language only; try the "Google Translate" gadget on top right to get an approximate site translation).

Being an old sea dog, I just love your interest in naval activities, especially your ensigns...

You made a nice little ship out of that souvenir boat! Looks so much better than the original!

You're so indulgent with me, guys... :)

Thanks for your comments, the goal for me was to see what would such a conversion look like, as well as testing how much effort would it be necessary to achieve a regular, acceptable result.

And it seems worth the money and time invested (just 3.5 EUR and some 4-5 evenings)
