These flags are default flags, they replace the EA plumbob flag in the game and show up everywhere there is a flagpole, both in your home neighbourhood and in Egypt, France, etc...

Important - you can only use ONE file!




The folder have following flags:

AR - Argentina
BG - Bulgaria
BN - Brunei
BR - Brazil
CL - Chile
Confederation flag
EE - Estonia
England
EU - European Union
Gay - Rainbow Pride Flag
GR - Greece
HU - Hungaria
ID - Indonesia
IL - Israel
IR - Ireland
JP - Japan
KH - Cambodia
LT - Lithuania
MA - Morocco
MX - Mexico
Old Laus
NZ - New Zealand
PH - Philippines
Jolly Roger - the pirate flag
PT - Portugal
Scotland
SG - Singapore
SK - Slovakia
South Vietnam Old
Texas
TH - Thailand
UN - United Nations
VN - Vietnam
Welsh
ZA - South Africa

Installation: Unpack, choose ONE file and put it in your package folder.
To uninstall - just delete the file and the EA flag will show up again.

I have all expansion and the stuff pack HELS. I don't know if this works with only the basegame but can't see why it wouldn't? Have a try but don't blame me.

Now you can place the flags on your lots.

There is also a folder in the 7z-file, ResidentialLots, with two files inside. It's just two OBJD files changing the description so the objects can be placed on residential lots,If you put these in your package folder you can buy these flagpoles and place them on residential lots.



But you can still just have ONE flag in your folder. This one replace the EA plumbob flag and show up everywhere where there is a flagpole, both cheap and expensive.

You find these in the outdoor categori.
The cheap one costs 120 $ and the exclusive 240 $

Have fun

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Would it be at all possible to make these absolutely fantastic flags optional for different countries, such as the French flag for France, Chinese flag for China, the Egyptian flag for Egypt and an optional flag for the main game town?

Glad to have an NZ flag, would have loved a Tongan one for Niua Simoa, but that's getting a bit obscure. :P
