Then make all of the necessary adjustments to your image. Don’t hesitate to add some text. Remember to leave the transparent background – KSP has a few build-in, including none.

Don’t worry if your flag looks blurry. The flag’s resulution is much less than the resolution of pictures your are used to. However, flags in KSP are relatively small, so they will look just fine on your rocket.
 
 

File location

 
Now you need to move your flag into the flag folder of the game. Assuming you are using the Steam version of KSP, your flags are to be find in
 

\\steamapps\common\Kerbal Space Program\GameData\Squad\Flags

 
Now just paste your flag into the folder. Feel free to add as well as delete the flags.
 
 

Naming

 
Naming of your file is crucial. The name of the flag file is going to be the label of “agency” in game. My file’s name is JEB.png, therefore the name of the agency – JEB
 
 
 

Usage

Placing your flag

 
After uploading your flag to the directory in the previous section and restarting KSP, your new flag should be available. Choose it form the flag list either in VAB, SPH, or a Flag Pole. You can also change specific flag after placing it on the vehicle.
