National symbols

The flag of Huntsburg is inspired by it's allied and home countries, the United States of America, Württemberg, and Germany.

The flag also consists of the Gay flag for equality, as discrimination is strictly forbidden yet tolerated to some extent. There is also the British flag, as the Grand Duchy of Huntsburg is an associate member of the British Commonwealth. As said before, the Grand Duchy of Huntsburg is founding a Commonwealth of it's own, giving the British flag a brother flag to the right, standing for the Huntsburg Commonwealth.
