EDIT:
The Golden Empire: The 8 gemstones on the crown symbolise the 8 Queens of the colony.
The Dark Knights - North: The influences of the helmet of a Knight and a black rose symbolising the rose war between the nations.
The Dark Knights - South: Same symbol for the knight like ant but a burning heart to oppose their sisters in this war.

Also I now put the second variation in here so it is easyer to see the difference.

Maybe I will make a Fire Nation flag too and I even thought about making one for the sadly deceased Trap Jaws in memory of them.
What do you think of my flags, be detailed
Oh wow. First up I am not a professional so take anything I say with a grain of salt:

The first Fire Nation Flag has a good approach in simplicity yet I know where you got that symbol form. ;)
I would try and make a flame of my own. Just take your time and be simple with it. :)

Take two of the Fire Nation is interesting as well because of the water (the flood that they survived) but It looks a little disorganised to me and the symbol should be the main object in your work. (especially with flags)

The Dark Knights reminds me of some pictures I get for my embroidery work: Looks simple but actually isn't.
The grey colors though make it easy on the eyes and I would consider making the crest the main symbol. Maybe use a knights helmet on top of the crest instead of the whole knight on a horse. (We are talking about ants :)

The Last one is also the one that I like the most. The peacefull union, the elimination of the lice, and the succesfull gardening attemt. :) But I would leave the lightest yellow on the right out of the flag and instead use a combination of the other two colours. (the darker one on the outside the light in the middle or the other way round, what looks easier on the eyes)

I don't know what else to say then: great work and much effort in making these! :3
Keep it up and you will improve.
Thanks......BTW i organised the colours to repersent one of the three original united kingdoms(I nicknamed The Amber Force, The Yellow Army, and the golden horde

This is a hand-drawn flag for the Golden Empire.
The colours I choose for this are gold, red and green which reflects the Yellow crazy ants well with the natural look.
I also featured the four queens in the centre as this is the main point in any ant colony and without her, the colony will fail and die so I drew the queens in the centre as a symbol of power.

How did you put the drawing on a pure-white background?
Most scanners do a pretty good job at making the paper a pure white, Assuming it was made digital this way.
I did scan the final piece as taking a picture with my phone came out in a terrible quality so I scanned it which was much more easier then trying to take a good picture with a phone XD

I drew this on a piece of paper from a sketch book :)

I figured I might as well try my hand at flags since I can draw, so these are my first attempts at some ant flags.
A flag for The Dark Knights, with a separate palette for south and north:

And a design for The Golden Empire, which I might redo because I'm not completely satisfied:

Any feedback is absolutely welcomed, as I would love to implement such things into my designs for the remaining colonies.
