The flag of Mascylla or Mascyllary flag (Hesurian: Maskillische Flagge) is a tricolour flag consisting of three unequally large horizontal bands displaying the national colours of Mascylla: blue, white, and gold (Hesurian: Blau-Weiß-Gold). The flag was first adopted as the national flag of modern Mascylla after the Mascyllary Revolution, though its main design has been largely attributed to the nation's earlier flag of the Mascyllary Kingdom, for a brief interruption in 1923.

While the meaning of the main colours of the flag are not exclusively explained in the any government document, a symbolism was slowly attributed to them. Blue stands for the long polar 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 the House of Ahnern, which currently rules Mascylla through its sovereign Dorothea I. Another version, which has been widely accepted, is that the blue stands for the Elbgau Confederation, which victoriously fought of Adwhin in the War of the Five Kings to unite Mascylla, hence the smaller and lower stripes of gold and white. However, historians agree upon that King Lukas I personally drafted the earliest version of the flag in the final peace negotiations in Langquaid in 1793. It has since been used as the Mascyllary flag, with a brief interruption of a horizontal tricolour of the same colours for the provisional May Republic.

Design

At the time of the adoption of the flag there were no exact colour specifications other than "the colours of blue, white, and gold". However on 11 May 1973, the High Cout of the Realm introduced a corporate design for the government of Mascylla which defined the specifications of the official colors as:
