From this webpage:
"You will find the Wallachian Kingdom in the old good Europe, in the Czech Republic, in the region of east Moravia. Just climb the memorable mountain Radhoąt and you will see it all. On the east side, the kingdom borders with Slovakia. Just take a walk on the ridge of Javorníky and White Carpathian Mountains, this is the border. On the north, the kingdom neighbours with Lachia and their towns of Frýdek-Místek, Nový Jičín and Příbor. Westwards the mountains gradually recede, and behind the town of Hostýn they meet a rich neighbour - region of Haná. On the south, nearby the towns Zlín, Vizovice and villages surrounding Slavičín, are the neighbours of Wallachians - Moravian Slovaks and Luhačovické Zálesí. That´s the way it is!"
This is a tourist's item, of course, but widely used on Czech (and even Slovak) pages.

The Valachian Kingdom is a joke by a clown, theatre and movie actor Bolek Polivka and his friends.

Maybe so - but if a guy is travelling all the way from Czechia to Scott Base (New Zealand base in Antarctica) in order to unfold that flag at 77o South it's not a bad one - see this website <brrrr>

One particular site dragged my attention, for its vexillological significance. It was a czech resort of exotic tourism for Dominas and their male slaves, significantly called "Other World Kingdom". In it's pages one could see the organization's COA and a quite distinct flag -- the latter in photographs showing indoor and outdoor scenes.
The coa is per bend purple and azure, a pair of handcuffs and a whip, the mantling azure, royal crown or, closed with four stemms and burning inside; motto "WOMEN OVER MAN" in sable fraktur capitals on a scroll or of three foldings.
The flag is 2:3 per saltire blue and red, an ogival eschuteon over all, white lined black with large thin Venus symbol in black.

Generally, these organizations and flags do not exist at present.
