National Historical Flags:
Main Subnational Flags:
Before ca. 1815 national flags and Landesfarben or civil flags etc. were not known i.e. not in use in Germany, there are only a few exceptions.

Within the Holy Roman Empire there existed countless minor units including ecclesiastical states, imperial cities, and even imperial villages. A major reorganization was brought about by the Reichsdeputationshauptschluß of 1803, when more than 100 polities were eliminated. The full text of the Reichsdeputationshauptschluß can be found in this website and an English summary in this website.
