Burma (government ensign), 1953-1974
Like a lot of former British Colonies, the Union of Burma had a government ensign based on the British blue ensign (i.e. a blue field with the national flag in the corner.) But Burma’s national flag already had a box in its top left corner, so the ensign has a sort of corner-within-a-corner effect.
United Kingdom (proposed), 2013
This one comes from a BBC News article about the fate of the British flag if Scotland secedes. (Short answer: probably nothing.) It doesn’t seem to be a proposal for a post-Scotland UK though. Rather it combines the crosses of St. George, St. Andrew, St. David, and St. Patrick into a crazy new pinwheel design. Kind of like a modern reinterpretation of the process that created the current Union Jack. I can’t imagine it would ever become a national flag, but wouldn’t it be rad if it did?
