Flag of the Iberian Empire by HouseOfHesse Flag of the Iberian Empire by HouseOfHesse
Just realised I never actually uploaded the flag to go with my Iberian coat of arms!
So here is my flag for a united Iberian state, featuring the Cross of St James. I chose to use the Cross of Santiago, as it is sometimes called, over an amalgamation of arms or colours and the such because no matter how many times I re-jigged it, I thought it looked messy. I chose the Cross of St James as he is the patron saint of Spain and the namesake of a prestigious order in Portugal, demonstrating the strong links between the two regions, and the steadfast Catholicism of the united crown. The remainder of the flag is similar to that of OTL Spain (though looks a bit like Austria).

Hm... As a portuguese, that looks good, but it think its too much like the Austrian flag. It would be better if in center it had your "Greater Coat of Arms of the Iberian Empire" you made. And maybe an eagle. But still looks good, simply and effective.

I definitely get what you mean, it's very Austrian-looking for sure. I do love how frequently eagles are features of flags in this period: if in doubt, add an eagle! Laughing

Really like the Cross, one of my favourite cross variations, and it ties the two countries together well.

"Santiago" means "St. James".

Which, when furthermore translated from its derivation Jacob, means "holy heel grabber"!
