Variants

New Star

New Star is used as the National, State, and Civil Flag and Ensign of Whatopia. The design was adopted on 10 January 2020 and first flown on 12 January 2020 in retaliation of moving to another table. The design and colors were slightly changed on 28 July 2020, becoming the current version of the flag of Whatopia.

Battle Star

Battle Star is used as the Battle Flag and Ensign of Whatopia. The design was adopted on 1 August 2020 and has yet to be flown since Baffier doesn't want to be in a conflict with anyone. The flag has yet to be altered in any way.

Civil Flag

Whatopia once had a Civil Flag and Ensign which was adopted on 1 August 2020, and abandoned on 3 August 2020 as its use was added to New Star due to a private vote on Whatopia's Discord server.
