Governor of Alabama, since 1939
The governor of Alabama flies the state flag defaced with the state coat of arms and military crest. The arms are a composite of five flags: French, Castilian, British, Confederate, and American.
I’m always making something for Sewluvli … I thought it was about time I made something for the boy (boys are always more difficult than girls!). He has a penchant for Flags … in particular the Union Jack … and recently purchased a ‘decorator pillow’ of same. Thus was the inspiration for this rug along with Churchill’s “Keep Calm … Carry On” Slogan … hope he likes it. It will add a dash of colour to his otherwise bland condominium (Black/Grey & White).

Cumberland, since 2012
The flag of the historic English county of Cumberland was officially registered with the UK Flag Registry in December of last year. The flag is based on the county’s traditional banner of arms and was redrawn by vexillographer Philip Tibbetts. It features the county’s official floral emblem, the Parnassus flower. The same flowers can be found on the flag of Cumbria.
Western European Union (1949-?)
In 1949, the signatories of the Treaty of Brussels adopted a flag to represent their fledgling co-operation. The flag’s colours were taken from the flags of the five member countries: Belgium, France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
No one knows how long this flag was used. It’s possible that it was already forgotten by the time the WEU came into existence in 1954. In any case, a new flag based on the flag of Europe was adopted some time before 1993.

Moscow-based graphic designer, Kirill Zaystev experiments with visual forms of national flags, taking the colours and combining them with typography and copy depicting the verbal stereotypes of each country. Some of them are hilarious and…um so true.
