Feeling stupid re; flashes...

I hate feeling this naive:
Are external flashes brand specific?  I've owned sony pocket cameras, never with an external flash, and pentax dslrs, and have a NICE external flash with it--  the pentax got lifted, I bought a nice sony dslr...  
I just never thought too much of it because they all use the same rectangular hotshoe connection-  
-- but in general, are external flashes (much like lenses) just as proprietary???
thanks....
