Policy for submissions and enquiries: Since Flags of the World encourages open discussion of flag related issues, we encourage those with flag identification inquiries to submit them to this website. We will try and identify and answer legitimate questions when submitted with the following information:

  1. An image of the unknown flag.
  2. A brief description of the flag, where it was located, and any other known information pertinent to its history.
  3. The submitter´s actual name is appreciated, not a pseudonym. All discussions on FOTW are held in an open atmosphere, and since our own guidelines say, we as members should always give our names, we would appreciate those making enquiries do the same.
Please note: We cannot guarantee that all enquiries submitted will be posted or identified, but we try.

On the pages linked below are images of flags that have previously been sent to FOTW for identification: some we have identified, and some we are still trying to identify. If you can help us identify any of these flags, please let us know! Contact the: UFE Editor.

We use the following key to classify each of these Unknown Flags or Ensigns (UFE):

Identification Key:
