Alternate historians, however, have speculated on multiple ways these Nordic countries could have become one nation (and only occasionally did they have to nuke the world to accomplish it). I assume this was what the creator of this flag was doing when he or she created the "Royal Standard of Scandinavia":
Novorossiya, but I still think you can see the flags from the actual nations in there as well.
That being said, I kind of like the idea of a united Scandinavia stretching to the Black Sea and North America...
Honorable mention this week goes out to the "Flag of the Minoan Empire" by Sam McDonald and don't forget to check his recent edition of The Audio File.
