Well, it's been a while since I updated the site. The server was moved in the last few weeks and in the process the FORUM was deleted. It's back up and running now. Please log in by clicking on the link marked FORUM to the left
In the last few weeks we've had a lot of incredible flag images uploaded by members of the Yahoo Groups forum. This wonderful medieval Belgian flag (shown above) is from Alex Pil and there are many other great flags uploaded in the files section. I will attempt to get them all moved onto the Warflag site proper in the next few weeks.
This Niederwlad banner from Medieval Switzerland was found at the battle of Sempach in 1386 and is from Chris Reynier. It also can be found in the files section of the Yahoo Group.
Since posting the info on 1.300th decals, I have abandoned the idea. I have found a supplier of decals in this scale and decided it is not necessary to duplicate these.
GREAT FLAG INFO DEAL
This is an absolutely splendid deal to be had. These flag and uniform details are available form Dan Schorr's Website. Just go to the link hi-lighted here and select "Book Store". These difficult to obtain plates are are available as PDF files on CD Rom at prices much lower than the original prints would have cost. Dan also has dozens of flags available for the Great Northern Wars. I am frequently sent emails asking if I will do these flags, but I have always refused as they are available from here. Be sure and check out Dan's entire site while visiting there.
WHO IS WARFLAG?
I just wanted to add this paragraph, because I have occasional seen references on news groups to "the guys at Warflag" and I also receive a lot email asking for particular flags. I am just one guy. I have very limited time to work on this site, which is essentially a hobby. We (and that would be the royal "We"), we get many requests for flags which unfortunately we don't have time to fulfill. I wish we did, but we don't.
When I am not busy working as an Insurance Fraud Investigator, I am busy wargaming. From time to time, more flags get added and as the years and months go by, the site does get bigger.
Napflags is a sub site run by the equally busy and far more talented Alan Pendlebury.
With the submission of the wonderful artwork of the viewers, Warflag is growing. Thanks for the support.
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE COUNTER?
The counter was only ever listed as an indication to me as to how much traffic I was receiving to ensure I didn't exceed my band width allowance. This new server I have allows much more bandwidth and I have instant access to my numbers. Also, some sites use their counters as bragging rites to attract advertising, while some list "hits" as "visits" to boast their traffic. For those who are interested, here are the statistics reproduced to the right of this news panel.

I've been working on doing some 1/300th
scale aircraft decals.

The link re-build continues. The American War of independence pages have now been restored. I expect to have the SYW pages up and connected by tomorrow night.
Thanks for your patience.

So far, the new server seems to be running well.
I've added a forum page to the site. Warflag used to have a message board which was quite popular judging by the number of emails I received when it was removed. It disappeared due to the third party provider going out of business. Now, forum software is more advanced and easier to run. So - if you have question, or wish to share the fruits of your knowledge, please go the FORVM link at the lower left of the page

Well, my apologies again. No sooner were we up with the new site than I had to take it down again. It seems that with all the flag images, and the popularity of the site, we just didn't have enough bandwidth to handle all the requests to view the pages. So I've moved to the best service I could find in short notice and purchased the greatest bandwidth package I could find.
With this done, I'll go back to re-building all the links. The purpose of the link build out is to separate the flag plates into individual pages, so that you only get the page you want to see. That way, flag plates are not being displayed unless you specifically request that plate. This should help keep the bandwidth usage manageable.

All of the links for the War of the Spanish Succession have been re built. There are several hundred flags in this section. You will see quite a number of examples of these flags on this page and on the links page. This is one of my favorite periods for flags. This sample is a texture flag of the Queen Dowager's Regiment. Don't overlook that this section can provide flags for many regiments from the War of the League of Augsberg all the way through the Lace Ward period of the 18th Century.

Warflag is back online - well, mostly.
I've rebuilt many of the flag links, although some are a little crude for
the time being. The more complicated directories will take a little longer
to put right - but I should have it done by the end of the week. My email
is up and running, so drop me a note
if there is a flag you're desperate for, and i'll try and shove it to the
front of the queue.
