Just curious:

Is that a stand-in for the pan-European flag? And, if so, why does every photo I have of Viribus Unitus have it flying the fake-world Kriegsmarine colors?

No, it's the other way around. Currently Friesland is under the Polish nation with Błyskawica and therefore flies the Polish ensign. Viribus Unitis is flying the WG Kriegsmarine ensign because when she was undergoing playtesting, she was added to the German nation.

Because the Blys is the only Pan European ship by now. The flag will change after this ship is released.

The Pan European Tree doesnt technically exist yet so they threw the ships in under nations already in the game. On the stream today they showed all these ships under the pan European flag which I believe means its officially coming soon.

Here's hoping Viribus gets to fly this as an option. Für den Kaiser!

Because Germany and Austria-Hungary were allies in the First World War, and it makes a certain sense for that reason to assign her there until Pan-Europe goes live.

Poland (which IIRC didn't exist as a distinct nation in WW1) and Holland share the dubious distinction of being victims of Germany in the SECOND World War, which is why I think Friesland is lumped under the Polish flag along with Blys.

I do believe that poland is being changed to pan-europe when the friesland goes live. The blys and poland in wows predate the concept of pan-national tech trees, which is why poland was a distinct entity when australia or china were not.

Obviously it's because Poland finally got tired of being conquered by the rest of Europe and went on it's own conquering rampage for once. :Smile_trollface:

 

 

 

 

 

(Nah, it's definitely just a placeholder for what will be the PE flag and tree. Besides, I'm sure it would tick off our resident Dutch forum cat and a bunch of his countrymen to see it sail under some of the other flags they could have used.)

Even if Australia had gone in, the Commonwealth would eventually have had to replace and absorb it in order for Haida to have a home.

Pan-national tech trees also allow free transfer between premiums like Anshan, Lo Yang and Irian and all the other ships in the PA line, and they allow it to be a line of tech-tree ships in the first place; otherwise they'd just be a handful of premiums as Commonwealth, Pan-Europe and Pan-America are now.

Hey Captains,

This is a great question and when the Friesland was announced it was accompanied with this line: Please note: Friesland will be tested in the Polish nation and then moved to the Pan-European nation.

Hopefully this answers your question on why the Friesland is currently flying a Polish flag.

if it has the ability to change its flag, then im asking for a friend here, can this be her flag?

They should put a ROC flag on a pan-asian premium ship just to watch the SEA and China servers have a conniption.

Pan-Asia has national flags. Makes sense for Pan-Europe. It would be nice to see the dual monarchy in the game as neither the modern Austrian or Hungarian flag would work.

By the way, there was supposed to be a naval ensign after 1915 with both the Austrian and Hungarian crests but I have not been able to find a picture.

Ok, Austria sort of works but it is not same.

I personally prefer the more traditional tricolor, but that's just me.

I won't be fully satisfied with Friesland until she flies the Dutch naval jack, a flag WG is fully aware of exists:

Lol. I fully support your crusade, as I want nothing more than to see additional (proper) flags in the game (and, particularly, the HSF jack flying over the early German ships).

If you stare at it long enough, there's a cat in the center.

No, no. It's a portal to the cat dimension.
