    I love flags. I think the UJ is definitely one of the best. France is quite nice. I'm sure some queen or other will say they love Sweden's. I personally enjoy Ukraine's more as far as blue & yellow go.

    It's so basic. It doesn't even have a cross.

    When I was in the STANS, I had to put up with my travelling buddy going "UNION JACK T-SHIRT" every 2 seconds. The flag was literally EVERYWHERE on clothing out there.

    I thought that about Tuvulu. It's kind of a bit :disco: in a Windows 95 kinda way.

    Ooo I love GREENLAND. My book says, "The white stands for the ice covering 83 per cent of the island, and the red-white disc symbolises the northern sun with its lower half sunk in the sea."

    WELL!

    Greenland is totally ICONIC and they're not even a REAL COUNTRY.

    I feel like I want split this topic, but FLAG CHAT may be the lowest low since Funky's Codebreaker.

    I don't think it needs to be split. There's only so much Penny propaganda we can take of a Friday evening!

    I'm tempted to say DO IT but I'm quite enjoying seeing a relatively serious thread interrupted with excitable chat about THINGS WE LIKE THE LOOK OF

    And anyway, nothing could ever go as low as ANYONE FOR FAUXCABULARY :zombie:

    I love the Macedonian flag too. It's like it was designed by a special needs child.

    Microstates and breakaway states generally have better flags than world powers IMO. You can sort of sense the 'WE'RE FREE!!!' excitement in the designs. I'm very fond of San Marino and Albania. (Can't post them on phone sadly)

    The Flemish part would be called Flandern.

    Yes, I hate the Czech republic as name. Same thing with the UK (because it doesn't mention which kingdom!).

    That would be the equivalent of calling UK England or Netherlands Holland. The Czech republic consists of Bohemia and Moravia.

    Uruguay was right outside my top 10. It really is a beautiful flag, same with Argentina and they're both similar to San Marino's.

    Yeah, but that's cheating! I'll make a flag shaped like a unicorn. Now beat me if you can.

    We should just replicate the Georgian flag but replace the four crosses with RED DRAGON PASSANTS
