Ok for this release I've gone through and added: New European Nations added in update 1.3.1 New Asian Nations added in update 1.3.1 New African Nations added in update 1.3.1 New Flags for most of the new formable nations New Flags for releasable nations that fit within the timeframe of the 1930s and 1940s I'll see if I can eventually get around to finishing off the rest of the releasable nations, but my primary focus was around nations that played active roles in the timespan of the game
"Warning this mod makes use of extremist political symbolism such as the Hakenkreuz as well as the Hammer and Sickle. This is purely for entertainment purposes and does not promote any political agenda"
*This mod is compatible with ironman and multiplayer*
To install this mod simply take the gfx file and move it to your HOI4 directory and replace all the files. If you wish you can make a backup of the flag folder should you wish to restore the game to its default flags.
To uninstall, you can either copy the backup flag folder you made or you can delete the flag folder then go to steam and verify the integrity of your game files
Here I am looking at the flags within Hearts of Iron IV thinking to myself good god what are those terrible horrors! So I decided to go through and fix them all up with historically or semi-historically accurate flags my goal is to keep it as close to history as I can, of course, some nation-states I will have to take liberties on but they will be as historical as they can be.

Q: Why is Japan not using the rising sun flag?
A: The reason the current fascist flag is the Hinomaru (sun disk flag) is because that is what the state used until the end of WW2. The Rising Sun flag is officially the Imperial Japanese Navy and the Imperial Japanese Army's flag with the IJA having their sun disk centred instead but was never used on a state level. For this mod, it focuses on using historical state and national flags hence why I am not using the Rising Sun Flag.
Q: I think that (insert flag here) would be good for the mod
A: If there is no state flag available for usage, the one you have shared fits and you can briefly justify the usage of it, I will consider it for use.
Q: I want to use incorporate your mod into the one I am working on is that ok?
A: Absolutely, just make sure you credit me
