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.

I think this is an absolutely amazing flag! I would like to know if you would be okay with me taking this design to a flagmaker to have this fabricated and displayed on my wall.

Looks like the union jack flag of the Russian Navy.

Ah, that'd be some interesting fiction if America was an empire instead of a republic.

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.

The Imperium of America, I'd think. There'd be no states.

Again, Great Flag, thus more that the American Empire I would find perfect for the "Great Nation of the Republic of Texas" of the Gurps infinite world: Gallatin, where the premature death of mr. Gallatin cause the balcanization of the original United States, where at the half of the XX° century Texas became a major power with a nuclear arsenal too(Kind like the series Revolution.....except the nukes).

Hmm, I don't think we'd go that british... perhaps if you took out the white "X" in the background, and took out the vertical blue stripes, It might look more like our symbol we placed on our tanks and planes during WWII.

is it intentionally mimicking the union jack???

:iconcyberphoenix001:
CyberPhoenix001 Featured By Owner May 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Partly. What happened was I saw a deviation someone had made a flag of "Zombie Germany" or something, I saw it and thought "Hm, that looks interesting", so I took the stripe pattern (I'm pretty sure it was taken from a war flag of Nazi Germany) and edited it.

The two crossed white stripes did come from the Union Flag, but more out of an attempt to make it look good rather than due to any special connection. As I stated in the description, when I made this flag I'd intended to highlight exceptionalism and warmongering, so I went out of my way to create something that looked both American-ish and imperialistic. The result is what you see here.

I just find irony in that our flag now looks like one we wanted to disassociated from so badly at one time. :XD:

Well, I didn't plan on having this associated with any particular timeline, much less our own, so you could just imagine it being the flag of a Code Geass-ish American Empire with the emphasis on the American part.
