The flag with the red-white-blue horizontals is the Dutch flag in upcoming files. I for one am happy to see any Dutch content, but I'd honestly rather see our actual naval ensign:

Hopefully the Dutch flag in the files is just the nationality flag and the proper ensign will come at a later date.

The Dutch ensign is one of the sexiest flags afloat. Not to include it would be a travesty.

The current Dutch red-white-blue horizontal flag Wargaming wants to put in works fine too though. Personally I like the Dutch flag better.

Honestly what I'm more concerned about is if that Dutch premium DD has a bright orange permacamo.

Oh I know it does. I'd just prefer the jack :)

Hopefully they do not follow Nelson's example at (ahem) that battle: "I really do not see the signal".

Without meaning to sound anti-Dutch (or anti-French), that Dutch national flag is so similar to the French national flag that I can see it confusing many people.  The naval ensign is unique, and I can't imagine ANYONE confusing it with any other nation's flag.

To me it appears that the ensign of the Dutch navy is the national flag of the Netherlands. The image below is a naval jack, which is flown from the jack staff on the bow when the ship is alongside. 

Just like how the Commonwealth ships fly the White Ensign rather than the national jacks, the Pan-European navies will likely fly the national naval ensigns as well.
