Flag of the American Empire by CyberPhoenix001 Flag of the American Empire by CyberPhoenix001
I noticed a lot of the flags of the so-called "American Empire" posted up just look like variations on the existing flag. I decided to go for something that would stand out a bit more.

I made this to highlight the rampant exceptionalism and eagerness to go to war that most Americans seem to have these days.

I don't know why, but this also gave me the idea for this weird setting. You don't have to associate with this flag or vice versa, but it's just an idea I had for a setting with an American monarchy:

"Following the attacks on the Two Towers in the New York province of the American Empire, King George Bush II, at the behest of his subordinate Viceroy Dick Cheney, declared war on the Kingdom of Persia and issued a royal decree, giving the Royal Guards of the American Empire near-unlimited powers to spy on and arrest citizens on suspicion of them being traitors to the Empire."

Please do not use this without my permission.

UPDATE: I've posted a newer version, at a higher resolution, and it also has none of what I call "pixeljunk", as in the edges are sharper, and none of the blurriness and poor quality.

UPDATE 2 (8/12/14): I have come around, bowed to public opinion, and changed the name so that it is no longer redundant.

Can I use this on a fanfic? It's a humorous story around USA buying a country as a new unincorporated territory? :B

Can you make the flag for the Empire of Hunteria? It's just like that flag except it has black and red only and crescent moons replacing the stars.

However, there were powers opposed to the dictatorial American Empire: the Tsardom of Russia, ruled by Tsar Vladimir III, the People's Imperial Republic of China, the Union of Arab Jamahiriyas and the Divine People's Empire of Greatest Chosun of the North under the Kim dynasty.

Looks OK, and I say OK because it looks like a British flag, and we kicked em out of their control over 200 years ago.

Why not make a flag of the Native american or minnesotian empire?

As a Minnesotan, a Minnesotan Empire would be amazing! :D

Though realistically I'd imagine it as a Minnesota-Dakota alliance with the neighboring states. Tri-State Empire or Minndakotan Alliance?

Interesting thought. I'll keep that in mind for when I get around to this!

BTW, in case you haven't seen it, one of my fellow AH contributors has made a map of a Minnesota-centred US: royalpsycho.deviantart.com/art…

Wow, nice flag. I was trying to think of a flag for my Valkyria Chronicles fanfic, Iron Cross Alliance. The United Amerian Republics, the VC counterpart of the U.S. is a Constitutionalist Alliance of Republics and Confederacies, that are united by the desire to remain independent and free. I've been looking for a flag that could be different from the U.S. flag, but with the same color meaning.

I was wondering I could borrow this flag as a potential official UAR flag.

P.S.: If you don't know what Valkyria Chronicles is, look up it's wiki on google, or watch the Gameplay and the anime on Youtube.

Thanks! I do in fact know about Valkyria Chronicles, and have actually included some elements into a scenario I have written:

And yes, you may certainly use my flag. :)

What would the full name be... The Imperial States of America? The United Kingdom States of America? American Imperium? United States of the American Imperium?

.....come to think of it, I think you just summed up what Imperial Cyrodill was supposed to be in Oblivion.
Interesting Idea. It's like a reverse British Flag with some Confederate thrown in.
