I guess for the same reason there isn't an England and Welsh flag.
As they are all part of the sovereign country known as the United Kingdom.

Yeah and the Northern Irish Flag isn't there as a seperate entity..

As for the Welsh flag, it's not featured in the Union Flag as it wasn't considered a 'Kingdom' at the time of the Act Of Union.

From Wiki

Quote

Wales had no explicit recognition in the Union Jack as it had been a part of the Kingdom of England since being annexed by Edward I of England in 1282 and its full integration by the Laws in Wales Acts 1535–1542, and was therefore represented by the flag of England.

It will be interesting to see what happens if the Scots (and I wish them well) vote for full independance, the Saltire will be removed from the Union Flag, the St Patricks Cross will be able to go to full representation (at the minute the red is halved to indicate they were a newer addition to the flag than the Scottish bit) and I would not be suprised if the Welsh push for some inclusion at that point.

originally those coats of arms were supposed to be for the RU server, now they got imported. The game and most of the developers are based on the RU side. I'm guessing they will come round at some point to do the other servers the same eventually but I don't think it's a priority.

Well the game is developed in Belorussia which has strong ties with Russia. The Russian playerbase is 4 times larger than the EU playerbase.
I've asked for the Saltire to be added along with the St George's Cross, Welsh Dragon. As for Northern Ireland I don't know what would be added as the Ulster Cross and St Patrick's cross are not really official national flags. (And that's a political hot topic that's not really something to discuss the merits of on our forums).
I would love nothing more personally that to be able to put Saltire's on all my tanks.
My American Tanks all have "The Flying Scot" on them and my British Tanks all have "Rob Roy" as inscriptions.

Seems Reasonable, Just some sort of representation would be great, it is tad annoying be a scot , and seeing the British flag all the time.

Isn't that indirect racism?

No mate its Scots jibing at the English in the same way the English jib at the Scots. This is not only normal but excepted and expected regional rivalry found all over these islands. That said try f*^king with the Scots and half of England will be up north kicking your head in for you. Same goes the other way round. If Scotland goes independent I will be partying as hard as any Scot but will be very sad to see them go to.

As for the flags. If wg have the union jack available. They should have all the fags for GB available. But as wg are mostly Russians they probably don’t get the subtleties of the myriad of the British isles national identities.
