Flag of the Kingdom of Franco-Hispania by azivegu Flag of the Kingdom of Franco-Hispania by azivegu
Playing EU4 lets you learn about a lot of the world. But sometimes the world of EU4 is limiting. I was playing as Castille and was quite successful. I had annexed Aragon and had Portugal as a colonizing vassal, soon to be annexed (seriously, never seen it before when a vassal aggressively colonizes.) Then came the big day. I had a marrige with France and the king died without an heir. I was nervous to declare a succesion war as it was against Austria and the HRE. But I did it. In the end, I believe more than 750,000 lives had been lost in a brutal and bloody war, but I managed to succesfully capture the capital of France and Austria.
To commerate this victory, I created a new even: Formation of Franco-Hispania. You need to control at least 10 french-region provinces and the capitol and 10 spanish-region provinces as well as the capital. I created a new flag. First I did the spanish flag with the french fleur-de-ilse, but it didnt look all to great. In the end I decided to go with this flag.
So it became, after annexing all of portugal, the Kingdom of Franco-Hispania came to be. After that, everybody wanted to be our friend. I eventually got an alliance with The Netherlands and helped them expand there territory to Denmark and got another Personal Union, this time over Italy

And by the way, I think that the flag does not represent very well the annexation of both countries. The flag represents France and the coat of arms representing Spain, but I don't see a connection there, but rather as if they had joined with glue the two symbols.

I might work on a map for the union between Spain, France and Italy seeing how close I was (I needed just 2 more years of game time :@)

Nice idea, though I find it disturbing that you used the french republican flag for a monarchy...

Yeah, I also tried the french kingdom flag (apperantly they never had an official one I learned) but I decided to take a little bit of artistic liberty and used the French Republic flag as it worked better with the spanish coat of arms.

Actually the french kingdom DID have a flag, actually two were used. The white standart (étendard blanc), which gives reasons to the surrender jokes sadly, and appeared in the late middle age (before, the fleurdelys standart was used occasionnally) was the warflag and used also over the fortresses. But the most famous one was the royal standart, which was never changed since the bourbon dynasty: commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil…

they did have them, but they werent official flags. Really just depended on what mood the king had that day. The white standard is by far my favorite of the french flags though.
