LO is another example of an airline that does not carry any flag on their planes, altough under the tail there is something like a red stripe. With a little imagination you can make out the Polish flag (white-red).

CX and KA despite being "flag" carriers of Hong Kong do not fly with the flag, and now being part of China means that only CA has the flag privilege.
|Quoting rbavfan (Reply 29):|
CX and CA are in autonomous regions that are exerting their freedom & rights they have always had until China gained back the nations from GB. Most Chinese cannot get a VISA to Hong Kong or Taiwan because the Government in China does not want mainland Chinese to see how many freedoms they have. As I understand its a tight rope and China does not allow their flag on the carriers planes because they will not conform. China Airlines just recently were allowed to add "Taiwan" to their planes.
|Quoting YLWbased (Reply 25):|
You do realize that Hong Kong has its separate flag right? It is ugly as hell and communist looking, but we do have our own flag. And since HK is an independent entity to ICAO with its own air space and immigration regulation, China Flag has nothing to with the SAR what-so-ever. The reason why no airlines in HKG is wearing the SAR flag is simple: not part of the tradition, not CX nor KA worn the HK colonial flag prior to the handover, hence no such practice carry forward after 1997.

The 717s don't fly outside the State of Hawaii.

AFAIK, all aircraft registered in Germany are required to bear the German flag somewhere. In fact, EW is the only airline to have both the German and the EU flag next to their registration. No other German airline, not even LH, does that.

They are still technically part of the United States last time I checked so I don't know why the would not have it.
