The 1st Iosephus Flotilla, formerly known as Centuria I Iosephus, was a unit in the Imperial Navy of the Empire of Austenasia which was founded to defend New Richmond, and at its dissolution was one of two flotillas in the 1st Jonathana Task Force along with the 1st Terentia Flotilla.

The 1st Iosephus Flotilla was founded on 3 October 2013 as Centuria I Iosephus, a unit in the Austenasian Army. The unit had the distinction of being the only unit in the Austenasian Armed Forces to be named after a person who has not been an Emperor; that is, the unit's founding commander, Lady Admiral Brooklyn Hewitt. On 8 March 2015, the Imperial Navy was re-established, and Legio I Virginia - of which Centuria I Iosephus was a part - was transitioned into the 1st Virginia Fleet, with the century likewise transitioning into a naval flotilla. It was dissolved on 11 February 2020 upon the Secession of New Virginia.
