Morse Code is often put next to the flags, but there is little relationship between Maritime Signal flags and Morse Code. Nor is Morse Code listed for any of the signal to the substitute flags. Likewise many websites often forget to list the 4th position substitute.
But finally today, we have Morse Code Substiute Flags and Morse Code prosigns to go along. These flags are based upon three letters, always starting with S for Substitute which has three stars. Consequently the Morse Code flag for 1st Substitute is SST; the first S comes from Substitute and the ST comes from st in 1st.
Unlike the other Morse Code flags that have their colour code based upon the order of the spectrum, the colours of Morse Code Substitute flags follow the colour pattern already established by International Maritime Flags.

Note that International Maritime flags are usually written with Morse Code. But those maritime flags are not really Morse Code, and have no bearing to the dashes and dots of Morse Code.
In essence these flags are reflective of the Morse Code signal. Likewise the added colour reveals the ones digit position of each letter. Since the Morse Code flag for the letter A, K, and U all have a number 1 in the ones position via 01, 11, and 21, they are all red flags. Consequently the flag for number 1 is red too.
The order of colours to number is based upon the progression of the visible spectrum. Since yellow is the 3rd colour, we get a yellow coloured flag for flags in position 03, 13, and 23, which represent C, M, and W.
Also each colour has set contrast indicator to reduce confusion. See the image below to see which contrast indicator belongs to each specific background colour.
Also note Morse Code flags are always read downwards. Although some cultures read from the left and others from the right, every culture reads downwards.

The Fun Flag for Element 94, Plutonium is based upon flag state flag for California but with several modifications. Since this element was first created in California, the California state flag dominates. But a leading quartet of four men were responsible for the genesis of Plutonium. The primary fathers of Plutonium were from Michigan, Iowa, Texas, and fatefully California. Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg was born in Ishpeming, Michigan; Arthur Wahl was born in Des Moines, Iowa; Joseph W. Kennedy was born in Nacogdoches, Texas, and by providence from Redondo Beach, California we have Edwin McMillan.
Consequently elements from their respective state flags are a part of the Fun Plutoniun Flag. Instead of telling what they are, I'll just let yous figure it out for yourselves. If you do, please feel free to comment on the post!
Pluto the planet was discovered February 18, 1930. Plutonium was identified on February 23, 1941, but later was given a birth date to December 14, 1940- after chemical analysis. Likewise Pluto the Dog was created and later named after his creation. Pluto the Dog appeared in The Chain Gang 1930.
After Pluto the Planet was named, the unnamed dog from The Chain Gang received his name - Pluto. Neat thing is that Pluto the Plant, Pluto the Element, and Pluto the Dog were all named a while after their first appearance, and all three were discovered by and in the USA, making this a Plutonian Hat-Trick.
The Fun Flag for Uranium is based upon the flag of Germany. It is due to the scientific pursuits of Martin Heinrich Klaproth while in Berlin that this material was recognized as an atomic elemental. This atomic element was named after the recently discovered planet of Uranus.
There is an intense JFK-Lincoln like synchronicity about this deadly and beautiful atom. Both Uranus and Uranium were discovered by German born scientists. Heinrich Klaproth was born in Wernigerode which is now Saxony-Anhalt, while the discoverer of Uranus, Friedrich Wilhelm Hersechel was born in Hanover which is now Lower Saxony.
Uranus was discovered on March 13, 1781 during the same year the first government of the United States was legalized on March 1, 1781 via the Articles of Confederation.
Uranium was discovered in 1789 the same year the second government of the United States was legalized on March 4, 1789 with the US Constitution.
The first nuclear weapon that utilized Uranium was used by the United States, as its government was synchronized to the discoveries of the atom and planet. And finally, nuclear fission was discovered by German born scientists Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann, and its theoretical explanation by Lise Meitner and Otto Frisch.

The Fun Flag for Cerium, Element 58, combines the flags of Sweden and Germany. Reason being, this matter was independently and coincidentally recognized in the same year, 1803, by Sweden and Germany. Jöns Jakob Berzelius and Wilhelm Hisinger of Sweden, and Martin Heinrich Klaproth of Germany were the first three humans to sense and describe the scientific element of 58 protons, but it was the Sweden's Berzelius who named this atom Cerium. Berzelius named it after the recently discovered planet of Ceres, which was recently visited by the NASA's Dawn probe in 2015.

The Fun Flag for Palladium is based upon the English Flag. Reason being, an English Scientist, William Hyde Wollaston, discovered this element in 1802. He named it after the newly discovered planet Pallas. Consequently the planetary symbol for Pallas makes up the central portion which looks like a female symbol but with a central square instead of a circle.

|Fade to Welsh/Cornish Black Conservative Switch|
Southern Britain and the Republic of Northern Ireland may become a reality in the near future if Scotland ever leaves the United Kingdom. Thus UK has several flag options to choose from in the event of a Scotexit. Additionally with the coat of arms, the Welsh Dragon will certainly replace the Unicorn.
|UK Flag, English Expression|
|UK Flag, Wales Expression|
The more black flag which expresses Welsh and Cornish colours and is a more conservative change, that retains the original UK flavor.

The French-English Fusion flag is for events and persons who are mixed English and French. Usually an intense rivalry for most as is the case with Korea and Japan, but many times great love and harmony and love can exist between the English and French. In this case persons who are mixed up with both English and French heritages genetic or not can fly this flag of love.
The Fun Flag for Helium is based upon a combination of the English and French Flags. The English Red Cross takes center stage while the background colours of France are recessive. In the center is a shield with the symbol of the Sun which also acts as an element of Helium with two electrons.
Helion, or rather Helium, was first noticed as a separate element by a Frenchman in India, Jules Janssen, but it was an Englishman, Norman Lockyer, who first to gave it a name, and both events coincidentally by providence took place in 1868. Lockyer named this element after the Sun God from the Greeks, Helios.
The Fun Flag for Selenium is based upon the Swedish national coat of arms. Instead of three golden crowns we have three golden atoms, and instead of red rubies we have red electrons. The symbol of the moon is in the crest position and the colours of Sweden are shown, blue and yellow.
The Fun Selenium flag has a moon upon it since it's namesake is the Greek for the Goddess of the Moon- Selene.
Also note since Tellurium is named after the planet Earth, we have the symbol of Earth in the center with two atoms up top and its atomic Z number on the lower portion. Like a proper set deck of cards, Tellurium is Oxygen's second cousin, leaning towards the transgendered element, being both masculine metal and feminine organic-wood.
Coincidentally the pattern of Romania is repeated in Africa with the nation of Chad and two more times in Europe with Andorra and Moldova. The Earth symbol by synchronicity reflects four different corners of the Earth that carry the "Romanian-Earth" colours: Romania, Chad, Moldova, and Andorra. They are so many unused national flag patterns, like they could have modified the order or use a different pattern? Nope, it was by fate that these four nations would use the blue, yellow, red vertical tribar, how graceful now, considering the genesis of the Fun Tellurium Flag.

The Fun Copper Flag is based upon the flags of Cyprus, which is where the word copper is derived from. The copper and green colours are based upon the flag of modern day Cyprus, as is the olive branch. Likewise the lions are based upon the old British colonial ensign. Finally red is also taken from the Northern Cyprus flag as well.
