Garasu no Kantai [Glass Fleet] is a rather odd series which seems to be loosely based on the events of the French Revolution, only - for some reason - transposed into space. Specifically, it follows a war between the League of Nobles, the People's Army, the Holy Empire and some monarchists, representing if I'm not mistaken the Ancien Regime, the Jacobins, Napoleon and the Bourbons, respectively (the series seems to expect one to root for the latter).

Holy Galactic Empire

The Empire has a flag, which is red with an extremely intricate coat of arms-type thing, basically a baroque mantling around a bunch of weapons surrounded by many roses.

Church of the Black Cross

The Church of the Black Cross, which is the Empire's established faith and a kind of funhouse-mirror space Catholicism (complete with pope). Its flag is shown in episode 1, and is a black field with a complicated device referred to in the series as 'the Black Cross.' The emblem is not a galaxy (as one might guess) but a stylized depiction of an accretion disk of matter being sucked into a black hole.

Commoners' Army

The series' Commoners' Army also has a flag, a plain blue field with its emblem, two rings of broken chains around a red blob, with two white birds in flight off to the sides.
