Only in flames will it lose it's ugliness.
So, haven't got a clue what you're talking about. You cunt.
There's not enough white in the stars and stripes.
Could you go a chicken supper?
to reply (I'm typing on my phone). The Union Flag is a aesthetically a brilliant flag. It's just a shame it was hijacked by racists and also used to sell any tat going on market stalls.
it's a bit cluttered really. the japanese and ukranian flags are amazing
The union jack is a fucking mess - the Japanese flag, however, is a classic.
i bet that would be a good book.
but i never read it. just used to look at the pictures and try to memorise them all
someone did the history of flags as their specialist subject on Mastermind once. it was amazing
The asymmetrical diagonals really bother me.
Have a look through a book of flags, most are three vertical or horizontal stripes. Much of Africa have flags that look essentially identical, even using the same colours.
I would have this on a flag, I could get excited by it.
I was looking for a pic of this snake symbol and i found this which is also based on this symbol.
This looks great so this would do for a flag (although maybe it could be in a circle of knotwork)
Flag doesn't fuck about
what's WhiteLightWhiteCity going to post about today now?
but Iceland ftw: It's the Union Jack but uncluttered.
...or Union Flag as pedants seem to insist on these days. That said, I also like seeing stuff on fire so would concede that a Union Jack on fire would also look pretty boss.
Albania's is probably my favourite.
Anyway, I have a full size union flag which used to fly on the clock tower at my school and it's all ripped and weathered. Looks amazing.
...doesn't mean that it doesn't make someone correcting you sound simultaneously pedantic and stupid.
the Union Flag has possibly been referred to as the Union Jack for longer than it has the Union Flag.
As a sub-thread, the idea of burning a Union Jack elicits no emotional response in me whatsoever; whereas, this is an act often used to symbolically attack a country, primarily as it can cause genuine outrage among citizens (I'm looking at you America). It's just a flag right?
Probably the old Soviet flag for me. The Union Flag doesn't work well as a t-shirt. The Stars and Stripes even worse.
...(and many of the accompanying symbols) was pretty smart eh. I would feel well jipped if I were Russian by their current flag.
Good national anthem mind.
Ive just thought of a fantastically powerful flag.....and its mine OK?
A black rectangle with a smaller red circle in it
My country would be the best.
Oh and 'a forest' will be my national anthem.
cmon tell me you don't want to be 'creakish' now
...but only if you opt for a flag that isn't rectangular. Bhutan and, err, Switzerland (I think) can break the tradition - out with the old, in with the new Creaky.
On our last day of school me and my mates made a big flag with a massive pair of tits on one side and a giant cock on the other and flew it from the roof of the school hall. The lad who put it up there fell off and had to go to hospital. He was fine though.
That replaced our plan of shitting on the hall roof and each planting a flag of our face in our dung so that future generations might find it.
The utter shits.
Fair enough, but why settle for predictable old red, white, and blue? Jamaica's has it going on.
Wales' red dragon is a bit fussy and showy, too. Shoulda opted for the flag of St David, imo.
The flag of St David is OK but a bit generic. The Welsh flag is the BEST flag, by a million miles. It's got a fucking dragon on it
