Flags are very often influenced by more than one source. For instance, the flag of Brazil is influenced by the flag of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and Algarve, back in the early 18th century and by a Napoleonic design for a flag of one of the Italian states (forgot which), that introduced the lozenge. The flag of Portugal, even if it seems to be entirely original, was nevertheless influenced by the previous, monarchic, flag of Portugal (in turn influenced by the earlier ones) and, ultimately, by the red flag of revolutions through the republican centers of late 19th century as we've seen recently.
Jorge Candeias, 2 March 2005


Yes, flags do not evolve in a tree fashion -- like living organisms do. It's more like a tress or thread, with individual "lineages" branching and meeting endlessly.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 2 March 2005
