Why is this still not an option for the Kaiserliche Marine ships such as Konig, Bayern, etc? If I'm correct, the particular flag isn't even banned in Germany, which begs the question why it can't be included.

This might change soon.

 

 

"In the federal state of Bremen, since September 21, 2020, the display of the war flags of the North German Confederation and the German Reich, as well as the black-white-red flag of the German Reich, in public is forbidden. In the Free State of Bavaria, the showing of the Reich war flag is to be banned in the near future. Other federal states are now also advocating a ban on showing it in public space. "

I don't think a ban is constitutional.

It clearly infringes on the right to free speech as well as on political rights.

Fortunately, what people consider to be there right of free speech or political rights are not necessarily a legal reality.

Most German people didn't deserve the events set in motion by the crippled emperor with his inferiority complex, the unfair treatment at Versailles and the subsequent vindictive behavior of German people previously thrown into poverty and humiliation.

I think people have the right to express their longing for a time before things turned into a tragedy not only for the country that was among the three or four top most advanced world powers at the time (around 1900), but also for many other innocents.

Is it one of the flags that's been co-opted by right-wing nutjobs? If so, that would explain it...

... rather poorly, though. At least as far as I'm concerned because IMO everything needs to be judged on its own merits (or lack thereof).

 

Here's a suggestion, why won't they pick up the current Bundesflag and start waving it around like maniacs. Any right-wing nutjobs are free to make use of my idea, thank me later. :Smile_trollface:

Because showing banned flags and symbols of war in this game is a privilege reserved solely for Glorious Soviet Union. 

 

 

And yes, I know the Imperial German flags aren't actually banned by law in real life. WG just doesn't care.

I'd guess this is probably closest to the real answer, it would be extra effort for them to put in an alternate flag for a faction even when they've done just that for others such as the Pan-Europeans. That or maybe they think that design with the black eagle in the middle is too fiddly...

It is. The entire lot of our current enemies of democracy are using it. The nazi party AFD, the Reichsbürgers, Covid deniers, conspiracy theorists and whatever nutjobs you can imagine.

So, we can't see some german flags in the game, cause in Germany showing them is forbidden by law.

But that's strange, so strange... Cause in some eastern countries, is forbidden to show communists symbols like the hammer and the sickle, but i still see a LOT of them in the game...

I wonder why :D

as long as no cheating is happening its just a choice, not having a choice would mean its not democracy

A lot of things have been co-opted. If you ban that flag, they'll just use something else. These ships appeared historically flying that flag.
