    Oh here we are :disco: @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

    ALMOST

    Flags are intrinsically gay.

    Change my mind.

    2 boring Eurovision flags: Sweden (so terribly ubiquitous and frankly COMMON these days) and San Marino (:boring:)
    2 favourite Eurovision flags: Georgia and Albania (:horny:)
    The gayest Eurovision flag: United Kingdom. It’s all that DISAPPOINTMENT :disco:

    How is the Swedish flag more boring than Poland or Malta?

    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 :side-eye:

    Ooh, lovely.

    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.

    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.

    Latvia’s basically a rectangular version of a NO ENTRY sign

    Which might explain their fabulous stream of qualifiers :disco:

    I’ve never noticed the pink lion (!) before but I’m sure it has NOTHING to do with that :tongueout:

    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
