Early Czech flags

There is an excellent publication on Czech flags of the early period published by the Czech Deptartment/Ministry of Defense (Army) in Prague in Czech and English showing many of the early flags.  Perhaps our recent Czech member can help people who are interested. I go mine through a Czech friend who went to the ministry.

Valachian Kingdom flag

[Valachian Kingdom flag] image from this webpage.

On this webpage are a lot of items for sale, connected to the "Wallachian kingdom", (Valašského království), amongst which a flag.

From this webpage:
"You will find the Wallachian Kingdom in the old good Europe, in the Czech Republic, in the region of east Moravia. Just climb the memorable mountain Radhošt and you will see it all. On the east side, the kingdom borders with Slovakia. Just take a walk on the ridge of Javorníky and White Carpathian Mountains, this is the border. On the north, the kingdom neighbours with Lachia and their towns of Frýdek-Místek, Nový Jičín and Příbor. Westwards the mountains gradually recede, and behind the town of Hostýn they meet a rich neighbour - region of Haná. On the south, nearby the towns Zlín, Vizovice and villages surrounding Slavičín, are the neighbours of Wallachians - Moravian Slovaks and Luhačovické Zálesí. That´s the way it is!"

This is a tourist's item, of course, but widely used on Czech (and even Slovak) pages.

The Valachian Kingdom is a joke by a clown, theatre and movie actor Bolek Polivka and his friends.
Vladimir Henzlik, 3 Dec 2002

Maybe so - but if a guy is travelling all the way from Czechia to Scott Base (New Zealand base in Antarctica) in order to unfold that flag at 77o South it's not a bad one - see this website <brrrr>

Other World Kingdom flag

[Other World Kingdom flag] by  António Martins-Tuvalkin, 16 Oct 1998

One particular site dragged my attention, for its vexillological significance. It was a czech resort of exotic tourism for Dominas and their male slaves, significantly called "Other World Kingdom". In it's pages one could see the organization's COA and a quite distinct flag -- the latter in photographs showing indoor and outdoor scenes.
The coa is per bend purple and azure, a pair of handcuffs and a whip, the mantling azure, royal crown or, closed with four stemms and burning inside; motto "WOMEN OVER MAN" in sable fraktur capitals on a scroll or of three foldings.
The flag is 2:3 per saltire blue and red, an ogival eschuteon over all, white lined black with large thin Venus symbol in black.
