Hinduism ruined the swastika for me.
But not HITLER?
Oh here we are @dmlaw
I would almost go as far as to say (if I’ve not said it already, which I probably have) that my favourite thing about Eurovision is the FLAGS
Name (Eurovision flags only):
-2 boring flags
-2 favourite flags
-the gayest flag
Flags are intrinsically gay.
Change my mind.
2 boring Eurovision flags: Sweden (so terribly ubiquitous and frankly COMMON these days) and San Marino ()
2 favourite Eurovision flags: Georgia and Albania ()
The gayest Eurovision flag: United Kingdom. It’s all that DISAPPOINTMENT
How is the Swedish flag more boring than Poland or Malta?
And also red is NEVER boring
I love the Swedish flag.
I do like the blue and gold but I think I’m a bit over the Nordic cross (unless it’s Iceland, at least until the Hatari obsession wears off). I quite like the Ukraine flag’s wonderful blue sky and glorious sandy beach, which I’m sure represents exactly what it’s like to live there
Boring Eurovision flags - Poland, Russia (you could have had anything and you went for that)
Favourite Eurovision flags - Czech Republic (that is how you make red, white and blue interesting), United Kingdom (our flag is great)
Gayest Eurovision flag - North Macedonia (obviously)
I can’t believe this is posted on our national day. The Swedish flag is a bit too vanilla but it’s beautiful.
The San marenese flag is one of the most beautiful flags in the world.
Albania’s flag is too aggressive and Georgia’s is rather bland.
Basically, all of your post was wrong, Zu.
Oh here comes Miss Eternal Period
HAPPY SVENSKA DAY ÄLSKLING!
And let’s have YOUR list if your choices are so HOT
It looks such a random list, are they the first countries that you came up with?
I did love this year’s Canadian entry though. Very SOOTHING although I could have lived without the cagoule and bell bottoms
Is this a Eurovision topic??
Also this is still valid.
You are wrong about Cyprus. Flags with maps on them are all awful. The best you can say is that it's better than Kosovo.
It’s not the map that makes it, but the colour combination which is fitting for a sunny, peaceful* island nation.
*except for the Turkish occupied territory.
Boring: Poland and Russia
Favourite: Estonia and Iceland
Well, I remember this topic from that day Lou posted it. I didn’t know some queens (rip Lou) created a new topic inside this topic.
Boring: Austria, Ukraine
Favourite: France, San Marino
Gay: Spain, Greece
Ugly: Belarus, Latvia
Why is the Spanish flag gay? I don't get it, is it the PINK LION?
Latvia’s basically a rectangular version of a NO ENTRY sign
Which might explain their fabulous stream of qualifiers
I’ve never noticed the pink lion (!) before but I’m sure it has NOTHING to do with that
So what is it then?
I’m trying to work out what’s gay about the Greek flag but I suppose it is quite JAUNTY
The indicates that it has EVERYTHING to do with that!
Just look at that lovely red tongue and CLAWS
It looks something out of Drag Race.Yvie Oddly would wear it.
Spain in general is pretty gay to me
I think it’s all that double-speed talking. It suggests over-excitability and HIGH CAMP
You're RIGHT. Those straight Spaniards that think they have the most MACHO flag ever, with the bright red and yellow colours of bullfighting, matador and fiesta... well, the pink lion ruins it all, SORRY!
They’re also quite TOUCHY. I used to panic each time a Spanish ex-colleague leaned over to talk to me, thinking OH MY GOD HE'S GOING TO KISS ME
