It has been suggested before that German flag for the Imperial German Navy and pre Kriegsmarine flag be changed from the altered Kriegsmarine flag to their historic ones and correct for the time ones.  However, there appears to be some legal issues with even those flags.

With the new Hamburg port, there is an altered Imperial German flag flying over the city.  Can we use that flag for the pre Kriegsmarine ships, as it would be closer to historically accurate and shouldn't cause any legal issues?

Just a thought.

The Russian ships show that they can do this so it isn't a technical issue. Heck, just switching to the Weimar flag would be an acceptable alternative to the current de-Nazified flag that we now have.

The standard Imperial German flag and naval one have some legal issues.  That is why I suggested the one they used for the new port.

I think that the problem is that neo-nazis in Germany have taken to using the Imperial German flags as their own because the Nazi ones have already been banned.  I don't know if the Imperial German flags have been banned as well.

While that might be an issue, the OP's suggestion is to use the modified flag already used on the Hamburg port in game.
