Does anyone else get a little uncomfortable placing flags and certain camo on boats that they really shouldn't be on?

D-day flag on German ships

Stars and stripes on Japanese ships

 

I know it's just a game, but it seems wrong

My rule of thumb for mounting flags is: If the ship/commander combo won't be needing the Military Month Contributor flag then I mount a flag related to that particular ship's country of origin.

Examples: Wilhemshaven flag for German ships. Chatham Flag for British Royal Navy ships.

In the case of US Navy and Imperial Japanese Navy: Hawaii Flag for USN ships as a reminder to never let guard down. Midway flag for  IJN ships as a reminder that hubris won't bring in a victory.

I get what you mean. From experimenting with the Stars and Stripes camouflage on a bunch of ships, the strangest for me was with the Yamato:

It's a game, none of this is real. Things amuse me, but nothing causes me any discomfort.

 

Well, horrid teams, THAT causes a great deal of discomfort.

Beer Can Roma -- while not making me uncomfortable per say -- makes me wonder what the WG art department is smoking, or I suppose drinking.

Yeah like my US Coast Guard Flag only goes on my US ships, and in memory of my Grandfather’s service in the Coast Guard.

Midway flags often goes on my CVs.

Corgi Fleet Flag gets proudly carried on many of my ships, particularly my HSF Graf Spee. After all I like having my Corgi Pocket Battleship like I did as a Corgi Captain for the last weekend they did that. ( lol joke was that small dogs like Corgi could not handle a full size BB, so they needed “ Pocket Battleship”. I would tell some fun joke about that to keep both teams laughing lol.) :Smile_Default:

HSF flags go on ships like Yamato and Kagero ( Kagero is the closest thing I have to Harekaze from the Anime)

Jutland Flag  goes on my RN ships.

Volcano flag or Burning man flag sometimes goes Nina fire spitting CA ( lol at least I am give enemy some warning about what I will do to them...)

I have my american military month flag on all my ships for the bonuses of it, regardless of nation, if they wanted it to be a nation specific flag they would have made it so, and had the correct flag for each nation, and besides isn't germany and japan owned by america anyway.

all of the arpeggio camos make me physically uncomfortable -- as in nauseous.  thankfully I can turn these off so that I don't have to experience their "artisticness".   

Unrelated, but kudos to WG for allowing me to turn off the screechie voices of all the anime arpeggio teen girl captains.  They may be good fun for some folks, but for me their voices were like fingernails on a chalk board.

Well, there is a particular camo pattern that I do find amusing. It's the orange and blue one, I don't remember its name.

It reminds me of an ice cream truck :Smile-_tongue:

We must have the snowflake flag.  Come, Russians, great scapegoats for the subversion of the West.  Supplicate my people with a universal, non invasive flag, one which means nothing really to anyone and one which we can then all proudly fly.  Idiots.

Too bad we can't have the pre-nerf burning man flag.

You mean the thing that is on all Littorio-class battleships, and is not something WG made up.Italian_battleship_Roma_(1940)_forward_t

I just place the Military Month Contributor flag or Alpha Tester flag on everything because of the bonuses. Having completed the Yamamoto collection I just use both flags on all IJN ships.

Awkward looking perhaps, but I've never felt uncomfortable over it.

I put British flags on my Bismarck and German flags on my British ships.

I just like the irony of it.

Technically, if Yamato had survived the war, she would have ended up wearing American paint :Smile_teethhappy:
