A Flag Quiz - Question 1

Having already published a history of the evolution of our American flag, I would like to add other flags that relate to our nation's history in some way. Therefore, I am creating an ongoing quiz. All the flags will represent an independent sovereignty that had territorial land claims and thus flew freely over a section of our present United States.
I will pepper these between blogs periodically to test your general flag and historical knowledge. If you know the answer - feel free to state it in the comment section. With each new question I will answer the previous one.
Here is flag question #1.
What nation did this flag represent and what sections were claimed or explored?
