The characters are nations or peoples, represented by a stick figure with the nation's flag on his shirt (hence the name Flagland). It can be found here. Compare Polandball, Axis Powers Hetalia and Scandinavia and the World.
Flagland provides examples of:
- Anachronism Stew: Often. The one about US states contains this exchange:South Carolina: Our rights are being violated! Washington is try—
Alabama: Not the state, right?
South Carolina: For the last time, Alabama, Washington won't be a state until 1889.
- Author Appeal: The author really likes flags.
- Big Ball of Violence: During the War of the Spanish Succession.
- Butt-Monkey: Belgium.Slartibartfast: [to Norway] And while it may not make you feel any better, you are at least not Belgium.
- Beat Panel: This comic contains two in a row.
- Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys: France is portrayed like this. A special mention goes to this comic which spends as much time showing France surrendering as it shows the Napoleonic Wars.
- Comically Small Bribe: The Entente convinces Italy to join their side by offering cookies in this comic.
- Creator Provincialism: Surprisingly, this is mostly averted. Denmark only appears in three or four strips.
- Deadpan Snarker: Prussia has shades of this.France: Prussia, all of your food is sausages.
Prussia: Glad to see the stereotypes start early.
- Dressed in Layers: Sometimes a country will take off their shirt to reveal a shirt with a different flag on it underneath, such as with France in this strip.
- Did You Get a New Haircut?: Repeatedly used.
- Follow the Leader: the author says it is inspired by Scandinavia and the World and Polandball.
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Invoked by Britain towards France in this comic, after France tells Britain that Britain's colonies are rebelling.France: Well, suck on it, because I am joining them.Britain: Ugh, what for?France: Always wanted to kick your ass. And I support these British rebels' lust for liberty.Britain: That's pretty hypocritical of you, Mr Kingdom of France.France: OK, well just to kick your ass then.Britain: You really are a jerk.
- Home Base: The Central Powers have one during WWI.
- Nations as People: Qualifies as this. Occasionally lampshaded.
- National Stereotypes: Less so than other webcomics in the genre, but still present.
- Nice Hat: The second strip pauses briefly so that the United Kingdom and Germany can get put on a top hat and a Pickelhaube.
- Overly Long Gag: Sweden lying about defeating other countries in this comic.
- Prussians in Pickelhauben: Germany wears one in the WWI strips.
- People Puppets: The Korean War is depicted this way, with the Soviet Union and the United States as the puppet masters. The Lord of the Rings strip is also depicted this way with New Zealand as the puppet master.
- Running Gag: It wouldn't be a European congress without Poland!
- Shout-Out: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy gets one in this strip.
- Wearing a Flag on Your Head: All of the characters wear their flags as shirts. Interestingly enough, the flag is drawn over the shirt, so the design on the sleeve will change depending on where the character's arms are. This is particularly noticeable on Austria-Hungary.
- World of Symbolism: Even moreso than Hetalia. Lampshaded in one comic:Post-Revolution France: Screw it! I'm off to St. Helena.
Britain: How can an entire nation go to a single island off the cost of Africa?
Russia: Yeah. And I thought *we* were supposed to send him there.
Prussia: It's easier this way.
- Unsound Effect: Most prominently used here
