So basically this is an alternate history where communist revolution take place in Britain instead of Russia.

Yeah, that German Empire flag was only used until 1935. In 1940, it would've been the Nazi swastika flag. Also, the US flag had 48 stars then, this one only has 47.

Alternate History, friend. Not real history. Hence the Federation of Workers Republics replacing Great Britain

Rashidi Arabia seems like a copycat of Turkey

great illustration! but sadly the fact is that in 1940 the Spanish republican flag had already been changed to the one used by Franco

Well, this IS an alternate history so it's not quite the same. ;)

Fantastic designs. :) Take a look at the designs I made for several alt history variations for the country that is known in real history as Iraq and what in one of my alt histories is renamed from Iraq to Mashriq (the domestic name of the region of the Levant): yamalama1986.deviantart.com/ar…

Why is The Russian empire still around in your 1940 AHTL, and where are the soviets, and what happened to Nicholas II and co.? PS: Who is Tsar Vladimir? PPS: Love your timeline. :)

What means the tricolour canton of the Finnish flag?

It comes from a flag proposal by J. Penger in 1863.See the link to know a theory about the meaning of the colors.

Argentinean flag is wrong too. The sun should be centered

It's not wrong per se - it's a image of flags from an alternate history, so there are some changes.

The flag of Spain is not correct (I'm spanish and I know very well). This is the official flag of Spain used since 1938 until 1945:

O RLY? ;)
the chart shows flags as in 1940.

anyway, i'm not sure if Bohemia had red-over-white flag... i thought it was then white-over-red, just like the Polish one.
