All "British Arctic Territory" flags are hoaxes, developed by Clay Moss et al. on April Fools' Days

The recently founded Bavarian Association for Trans- and Meta-Vexillology (BAT-MV), although enjoying the reports on the ongoing research about BAT flags, might add some more controversial points-of-view regarding the status of the territory as well as the proper flags for it.

The BAT-MV (in its clause 42-21 of the by-laws) strongly rejects the claim of the current reigning clan in Britain over the British Arctic Territory. As patriotic Bavarians we instead do not only support the Jacobite claim on the throne of Scotland, England and Ireland (His Royal Highness Francis Duke of Bavaria is the legitimate heir, in our not so humble opinion), but also consider the BAT the proper territory for launching a Jacobite Reconquista of the lost territories on the British Isles.

Therefore the proper flags of the BAT do not only show the pre-1801 Union Flag in the canton, but also use a lighter blue (like in the Scottish and Bavarian flags); the BAT shield is not to be shown on a white disk, but on a white upright lozenge (at least on blue ensigns and derived flags).
