I’m an enthusiastic reader of Scrooge McDuck-Comics, and yesterday I found the flag of Duckburg. In a story about Scrooge at a treasure hunt in a country named Unstetistan, there’s a picture with the embassy of Duckburg, and the flag floating above the building. In Unstetistan, there are civil riots at this moment, and Uncle Scrooge wants to request asylum, just before a rebel soldier blows up the embassy. The flag shows a golden duck on a red background.

The story was published in 1966 under the title “Treasure of Marco Polo” (W US 64-02), drawn by Carl Barks, see here. This was a particularly political story, heavily criticizing the Vietnam war, and therefore not too typical for Disney stories. The embassy of Duckburg in Unsteadystan (Unstetistan/Chaotistan) flies the Duckburg flag.

It would be interesting to check the other versions: According to the quoted inDucks site, this story was published in Australia, Brazil, Germany, Danmark, Spain, France, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and in the US (original version). These color variations might mean that the coloring of the flag was not considered an important detail.

White on white

At least in one of my copies of the comic it is tinctured differently: white on white. See scan.

DuckBurg’s sport flag

There is different Duckburg flag, possibly a sports flag and/or used only in translated versions where "Duckburg" starts with a "P" — in this case, Portuguese, "Patópolis"; usable also in Spanish and Italian (see more names for this fictional city). It is a red triangular pennant with a yellow disc charged with a black (comics typeface) "P". My souce is a reprint of Portuguese comic magazine Hiper Disney 10 (2004), titled Hiper Disney Reedição; 1st frame of p. 140, 14th plate of story Superpato e o Hóspede (in)desejado (pp. 127-150; Disney code J-2533-6), wich is a Portuguese translation of the Italian original Paperinik e l’ospite (s)gradito (Disney code I TL 2533-6; see about it here) — I could not find the original Italian plate. In this story, Donald waves this flag at home while watching a television broadcast of a sports competition, in support of his hometown team.
