Certainly Bernard, 1401 might be of interest

Hi there

   Might this be the Golden Dragon Flag (Baner Y Ddraig Aur) Raised by Owain Glyndŵr as his battle flag?

Cheers,
Tim

Absolutey correct Tim - Your turn now.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Draig_aur.gif

The banner is known as Y Ddraig Aur or "The Golden Dragon" which has ancient origins. It was famously raised over Caernarvon during the Battle of Tuthill in 1401 by Owain Glyndŵr. I believe Y Ddraig Aur is associated with Y Mab Darogan or Son of Destiny / Chosen One

Re clue - The Sons of Glyndŵr (Welsh Nationalists) had a period in the 1970's where they were said to be resposible for setting fire to many second homes owned by English.

The flag looks like the Australian Federation 1830s-1920s but with two extra horizontal stripes, another date perhaps ? {:-{

Not the federation flag although the correct time period.

After a little more research i have found out that this particular flag may only have been a proposed flag  {:-{

so it might be a little difficult to find.

I thought it might be but I couldnt think of any other clue that wouldnt give it away.

But yes it is the proposed merchant shipping flag for NSW as of 1830 never caught on though, I think it looks pretty good.

Ok heres another one for everyone, will probably be a little less obscure I hope  :}

Ok how about a hint ...
The flag is related to both eastern Europe and North America in some way or another  :-)

Well part of the Alaskan flag is there (plough/dipper) so perhaps the Bering Strait area ?
