Introduction

The 2003-2004 anime series Full Metal Alchemist (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) takes place mostly within the borders of the state of Amestris. Culturally and technologically similar to turn-of-the-century Europe, it is a vast, sprawling, borderline-ungovernable entity just barely held together by a military dictatorship. The lead character of the series is an alchemical prodigy who is forced by circumstance to enter into the service of the regime.

Amestris

The national flag of Amestris pops up in two scenes in the series, once at a military funeral and again being torn apart by an angry mob. It is plain green with in the center a small version of the same white mystery-beastie than on the military flags. The charge is used as a badge on military uniforms as well. One gets the impression that this may actually be the symbol of the military government rather than a true national symbol. Images are available here. Note that I only found the name of the country in online resources; in the series it is always referred to simply as «the State».

Central Military HQ flag

The Central Military HQ in the capital city uses something very similar to provincial HQ flags, only a bit wider and with the bottom tiered, not pointed.

Provincial Military HQ flag

The Amestris HQ flag is a yellow-bordered green gonfalon charged with a white reptile or dragon. It often appears hanging from the facades of one of the regime’s Provincial Military HQ’s (there are four provinces: East, West, North and South; all the HQ’s seem to use the same flag, however).
