Phred is probably going to hit me with one of his plungers for this but here are yet more flags...

I have only seen the VOC flag presented on what I call the Newer flag of the Netherlands however I have also created a version on The Prince's Flag (that very orange one).  The reason for this is because the Dutch East India Company dates back to the time and use of the Prince's Flag and thus I wonder if this version could have existed...

At any rate there you go Mr Tiber, better late than never.

*readies his plunger ammo into his cannons* :-P

Great work Col. *y*

One question. Would you consider these flags as additional dutch flags, or should these flags be put into a non-country category?

I'll be putting them with the dutch flags for now.

Definitly Dutch.

Well I see Phred's point, there are British East India Company flags which I've done but need to post, one can always say these are extra Dutch and British flags or it's a new category - one for trading companies.  If I had some idea of some other companies' flags then it would be worth having a new category.
