Chrysanthemum is the Japanese Emperor`s symbol , on a blue flag it is "at sea"  (pink for cars and trains, red for at home )   Does he have a "royal yacht" I wonder?  Source Wikipedia.

It says Royal family so I don't know if the emperor actually has to be aboard.

Hello

Back to Guidon, yes it's a french name and for flag it's coming from army and regiment to align part of the regiment to other. By the way each "clan" have it's own guidon serving to guide and to align but also as distinctive mark.  

In the navy a guidon is the name of your burgee. Again like a distinctive flag for a "clan"
    
Then it's also a name of some railway signals and now for most people the word is mainly the wheel of a bicyle as you guide your way with it.

I don't want a rebellion so I can`t pretend that York doesn't come into the answer indirectly. I hope that is a turning point for you in your searches. ;)

Finding the flag has proved interesting, fair number of pics but references to people a little hard to find. Best I can do is Bonnie Prince Charlie and the flag raised at the Battle of Culloden. According to one reference it is still flown there where the Jacobite lines formed......

You got it W3bby , the Jacobite standard of The Young Pretender or Bonnie Prince Charlie depending on which fairy tale you want to believe. Charles Edward Stuart by name.  My school told us that he turned back at York, silly boy {-)

Yes - he completely missed out on the Railway Museum & Viking Dig %%

Is there a link to that Jacobite flag - I would like to find an explanation of the imagery too.

Dave , at least the Mallaig line from Fort William runs the Jacobite steam hauled train, sadly now better known as the Hogworts Express by the guilable sorry film fans.  I just asked Wiki for Jacobite flags and got a lot of images but didnt get the one I wanted, which has five or six white cockades down the hoist side.  Look for "white cockade" + Jacobite and you`ll have a weeks reading

Hunza (Pre-independence Pakistan)

State of Hunza in Gilgit Agency which is North of North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan. Recognized by the British as a semi-independent principality in 1850s, Hunza progressively lost sovereignity in the process of constitutional changes in Pakistan. State was incorporated into Pakistan in 1974. Last ruler was Mir Mohammad Jamal Khan 1946-74. Hunza is supposedly one of the most beautiful corners of the world.

Hi Surf

I'll go out out on a limb with a guess

Southern Cross and I'm thinking Australia
Not typical of their art but just made me think Aboriginal
now that low orange curve reminds me of Ayers rock ....... under a hot sun
and the blue looks like a pool ......... or watering hole

Uluru is the Aboriginal and official name but does not mean "waterhole",
it's an Aboriginal place name, referring to both the rock itself and the waterhole
on top of the rock. The Aboriginal owners of Uluru call themselves Anangu. They
are often referred to as the Yankunytjatjara and Pitjantjatjara people,  the two
languages spoken by the Anangu

I can't find anything in support but I'll go out out on a limb and say
an Anangu flag for Uluru or the resort of Yulara
Yulara means "crying", "weeping" I read.

I have also been onto the Australia theme, new flags for if/when they leave the commonwealth, found zip so far.
Why do I get the feeling it's the flag of some surfing paradise????
