So I was putzing around in the Eastern Kingdoms the other day and I got to wondering just how far Stormwind's kingdom goes to. If you go to Westfall and Darkshire, they arent flying Stormwind's colors. They have some other tabard. It's also the case in Redridge. So is Stormwind's kingdom only in Elwynn Forest?

Generally, the kingdom (under control) would include Elwynn Forest, Redridge Mountains, Duskwood, Westfall, and Stormwind City itself.

The governments of these regions vary, but they are all either directly claimed by Stormwind or a fiefdom/protectorate of Stormwind itself - this is why you may see varying colors being flown.

If you saw the Warcraft movie, you got a glimpse at the scope of Elwynn and a couple other zones. :)

Do a sequel the movie was great.

Also what about Karazhan? Is that it's own thing?
I think Deadwind Pass is generally considered within Stormwind's sphere of influence, there's just not much to influence there. ;P

But in those areas I dont see the Stormwind colors being flown at all. I guess one could just assume away the reason like, "Stormwind allows them to only fly their own colors but when it comes time for homage, they follow Stormwind." But thats not the traditional fiefdom IRL or most fantasy settings. A vassal is usually required to fly the Lord's colors along with his own.
Varies zone-to-zone, but Sentinel Hill, for example, has Stormwind flags. They may be phased in-game as Sentinel Hill is attacked, but a quick search brought this image up.
