The flag of Mascylla or Mascyllary flag (Standard Alemannic: Maskillische Flagge) is a tricolour consisting of three unequally large horizontal bands displaying the national colours of Mascylla: blue, white, and gold (Standard Alemannic: Blau-Weiß-Gold). The flag was first adopted as the national flag of modern Mascylla during its unification in 1793, depicting a crowned deer instead of the crown and antler, during the Kingdom of Mascylla, until 1950. Inbetween 1950 to 1951, the flag of the government of Mascylla was used for the state under Philipp Enst, as it did not show any associations to monarchistic politics and would depict the true flag of a Mascyllary "democratic nation". After the Srecond Crown War, this flag was adopted under big controversy as the flag of the government and state, while the reformed version of the national flag before 1950, under the Kingdom of Mascylla, was defined in the Grand Constitution. Although many see the government flag as a symbol of the tyranny pressed onto the population under the dictatorship of 1950, it slowly evolves into a symbol of democracy and especially unity for Mascylla.

While the meaning of the main colours of the flag are not exclusively explained in the Grand Constitution, they slowly created their own symbolism. Blue stands for the long nights, which occasionally occur at areas that northernly, while they also depict the oceans and rivers. White stands for the purity of the monarchy, the people, and the state, while also symbolizing the snow of winter. And finally gold, which depict the colour of the crown and the main colour of House Cheldwingen, which currently rules Mascylla. Another version, which is widely accepted, is that the blue stands for the Bound, which successfully supressed Adwhinish imperialism, hence the smaller and lower stripes of gold and white, during the War of the Five Kings. However, Historians are able to agree that King Lukas I personally designed the earliest version of the flag in the final peace negotiations in Lehpold in 1793.
