Overview

The number of both pro- and anti-Trump flags is astonishing and certainly we will never be able to catalog them all. Dave Martucci, 1 November 2020


Supporter flags

We can start by differentiating the several flags and would-be (spurious) flags that may actually exist and/or would emerge, into four main categories in chronological order (let's take into account that the following are strictly Trump-related and do not include other organization's and/or movement's that support Trump, except when noticed, as well as featuring logos and/or symbols for visual identification purposes only, not implying that they are flags per se but recognizing the fact that they are part and sometimes the basis for graphic applications derived and/or used, as well as acknowledging the fact that some specimens were used during both the 2016 and the 2020 Presidential elections):

  1. Flags related to the Trump Organization (private and/or corporate flags relating to his personal/business affairs)
  2. Flags related to the 2016 U.S. Presidential campaign (they may include 2016 Republican Party presidential primaries' flags)
  3. Flags related to the 2020 U.S. Presidential campaign (they may include 2020 Republican Party presidential primaries' flags)
  4. Flags related to the contest (boycott) of the results of the 2020 United States presidential election

1. Flags related to the Trump Organization

 (private and/or corporate flags relating to his personal/business affairs)

These flags cover the period when Donald J. Trump started to work on his father's business interests and before he formally enters politics. It may also portray flags used by his father and/or his business ventures (both pro and against if applicable). The main slogan is "Make America Great Again" (shortened to MAGA) and it is both featured on the campaign logo and flags.

(It is attributed that at least since 2005 the use of a Coat of Arms for the last name Trump has been in use in several properties owned and/or managed by Trump and/or his multiple investment organizations (namely The Trump Organization). This coat of arms engraved at the main entrance of the The Trump Park Avenue in New York City is the family's Coat of Arms) (cropped image taken from the original located here: https://media.gettyimages.com/photos/, source: https://www.gettyimages.ie/detail/).

Here's a close-up version of the coat of arms above, in silver and gold, together with an article dating back to 2012 citing the authorization to use a variant of this coat of arms authorized by Scotland, with the official description of the would be coat of arms as follows: "The Lion Rampant makes reference to Scotland and the stars to America. Three chevronels are used to denote sky, sand dunes and sea" and "'The double-sided eagle represents the dual nature and nationality of Trump's heritage". 'The eagle clutches golf balls, making reference to the great name of golf, and the motto "Numquam Concedere" is Latin for "Never Give Up" - Trump's philosophy.'" and the authorization granted to the family to use this coat of arms)

It is alleged that the original Trump coat of arms was actually "a near-identical copy of one registered in 1939 by Joseph Edward Davies, the New York Times reported (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/28/business/trump-coat-of-arms.html), where the original said "Integritas", now it says "Trump". Davies was an American diplomat and husband to Marjorie Merriweather Post, who built the Mar-a-Lago resort that now belongs to the president, and where presumably he first saw the coat of arms. The similarity was spotted by Davies' grandson, former US senator Joseph Tydings, on a visit to the resort. He told the Times he had not given permission to the Trump Organization to use the arms. It drew the attention of heraldic officials in Scotland when Mr Trump attempted to brand a new golf course in Aberdeen with the adulterated arms. They noticed that he hadn't registered it with the Court of the Lord Lyon.". "We would never allow this as a new coat of arms," said John Petrie, Rouge Croix Pursuivant of Arms at the college. "There needs to be at least two lineal differences from something that's been granted in the past." The fact that Mr Trump had changed the colours of the crest to black and gold was not considered sufficient, Mr Petrie said."

2. Flags related to the 2016 U.S. Presidential campaign

(they may include 2016 Republican Party presidential primaries' flags)

Several flags are shown on our page referring to flags from the 2016 Presidential Campaign. Others subsequently reported are shown below.

These flags cover the period when Donald J. Trump formally enters politics in 2015 as a Republican Party candidate for the primaries, leading up to the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections. It may also portray flags used right after winning the Republican party's ticket for the Presidential election as well as flags used when he became the 45th President of the United States (both pro and against if applicable).

"The campaign drew heavily on Trump's personal image, enhanced by his previous media exposure. Prior to his presidential bid, The Trump Organization also relied on the 'Trump' surname as a key part of its marketing strategy. Consequently, the 'Trump' name was in widespread use in the U.S. well before the presidential campaign itself started."

Replacing the previous logo, this is the Campaign logo for the presidential campaign of Donald Trump of New York and Governor Mike Pence of Indiana. Reasons for the change were both remarks from people on social media as well as possible copyright conflicts, as mentioned in the following sources: https://www.vox.com/2016/, https://www.vanityfair.com/news/, https://www.wired.com/2016/ and https://edition.cnn.com/2016/) (cropped image from the original located here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Trump_2016_presidential_campaign, source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Trump_2016_presidential_campaign).

This is a logo/symbol and I have not seen it displayed on flags yet but if someone has, please send a picture so we can confirm its existence as a flag. "After the Charlottesville "Unite the right" rally (August 1112, 2017), a piece of art spread at protests and through social media feeds. The artwork resembles a Nazi swastika, except it's the number "45" for the 45th President of the United States Donald Trump with the international symbol for "No," a red circle with backslash. Austin-based artist Mike Mitchell created the image with the intention of it being used as "protest paraphernalia," originally posting it on Instagram February 9 and making it available in high resolution on his Twitter account on August 14, 2017 (sources: https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/the-45, https://news.artnet.com/art-world/no-45, https://www.usatoday.com/story and https://twitter.com/sirmitchell).
