I was browsing through a book of flags and thought it might be nice for us to share some of our favourites.  This list is my top five flags of current, reigning, national monarchies.  It's in alphabetical order, so it is a complete coincidence that my own nation's flag comes first. 

The Commonwealth of Australia
Commonwealth of Australia


The Kingdom of Bhutan
Kingdom of Bhutan

The Kingdom of Denmark
Kingdom of Denmark

The Prinicpality of Liechtenstein
Principality of Liechtenstein

The Kingdom of Spain
Kingdom of Spain

I'm also compiling a list of historical flags, sub-national flags, and even some republican flags.  Please add your own favourites.

A generic Bourbon Flag- I think you get the idea-


Flag of the President of the United States (that weird outline thing is not really there)



Flag of the State of Maryland-





That would be my top 3, though the President's flag is probably my favorite.
