can`t we all just get along? i personally have nothing against most nations, and i know that the choices a nation`s government makes isn`t necessarily reflective of its people, so why put a general label on everyone from a particular country? that`s bigotism in the extreme. why does it bother some that bsr is proud of his nation? you can always post your nation`s flag. if any one of us lives in a country where we don`t need to worry about being abducted by masked men who videotape our brutal beheadings via hunting knife, then we should consider ourselves lucky and stop acting like 7th grade boys in a locker room comparing size.

Hmmm? Did they walk into Ice cream parlors where little Jewish kids were and blow themselves up? No? Oh, I think it`s because they were going to die at the hands of enemies who did not treat prisoners of war very well. Whether it was the Japs or Nazis, and the difference you fail to mention genius, is that was during warfare, not acted out upon ordinary citizens.

btw the bsr, i take it that you`ve never heard why the Hells Angels call themsleves that? its because of an AMERICAN squad of paratroopers in WWII who strapped dynamite to their legs so that, if wounded, tehn tehy could kill as well. worlds first suicide bomb?

Yeah, because terrorism, charging high prices for your goods, anti-Semitism, and supressing women`s rights are really Arab inventions. B-| Give me a break, these things have gone on (and continue to go on in MANY places not just the Arab world, in fact charging too much for your goods/services happens EVERYWHERE) for thousands of years.

And let`s list some of the things the modern Arab world has given to us.
Terrorism, High Oil prices, Terrorism, Anti-Semitism that would make Hitler proud, Terrorism, Can`t forget their amazing Women`s rights, Terrorism, oh did I mention Terrorism?

Try that for a very short list of what the arab world did for the rest of us. To dismiss any culture so blindly is as fanatical as those fanatics you oppose.

Oh by the way the USA barely got round to having an involvement in WWI and came in two years after the action had kicked off in WW2. Thanks for being so eagre to save us.

Maybe Europe and Africa should call up that no americans except native americans would even exist without them, or you`d be speaking French if it wasn`t for the British and so forth... Its a fun game we can go on all day.

"Ok, now lets grade them by contribution to the world. Just an idea" Yeah go read some History that date back more then 500 years, like maybe looking to the Romans, or maybe the Greeks and then the Arabs.
You know you cat build a house with out the foundation. America is nothing in the grand scale of things, give me a list of good things the US has done I`ll give you a list 5 time long that the arabs have done.

All I can say is, has anyone been watching Hells kitchen?
That shows you yankie boys and girls just how pu$$y like you really are.
So what you think your flag is good, You know what patriotism sounds like? Think about it for a while it will come to you.
You know when you put pictures of 911 flag etc, all you are doing is saying hey look at us we got bombed, whoopee flipping do, 125000 Iraq civilians.
And all for one man. So get over your flag, I bet most of you don’t even know where it came from.
It’s a bad design anyway, some lines and a few stars woohooo.

"imagine what happens when a school kid needs to draw one for homework. " uh, what, he draws it? i`ve drawn the united states flag before and i didn`t have any trouble.

I`m not saying that to be patriotic either. I agree with LiLBlond3790. we ARE to patriotic at times.. for instance.. why is it that we call ourselves "Americans" ? why isnt Canada, Mexico, Central America and South America included in that?

if i made a flag it would look the same as pakistans except the colours would be gold dark green and white. oh and i would write "our creator our leader god" or sumthing else that sounds mushy or has to do with 50 cent. or maybe sumthing historical.

I agree that there`s too many American`s being annoying. This isn`t a call to be as patriotic as you can and defend our flag from some guy who might call it *gasp* ugly. Give me a break.

But I guess it`s not my place to talk, I hate this country.

omg...everyone from the US is like, being really obnoxious...just get over it people, and stop obsessing over our flag! Everyone else`s flags probably represent something special and mean a lot to them too, so stop being gay about it and move on with your lives! I`m American and I hate the way people in my country think they are gods and godesses! You can just see it in what all of you are writing!!!

There are so many things wrong with this flag.


He gave my country a 40 -sob- Oh well, I don`t even like the flag veyr much anyways...Also for those of you who are curious, the blue represents the two oceans and the white represents peace. Also the bird is quetzal which is out national bird and the writting on the scroll is the day of our independence from Spain.

Look at the methodology section:

"Rule 3: Do not use a tricolour unless you are in Europe.

Actually there is no excuse for any country to use a tricolour - but some places (e.g. France, Italy) are stuck with them and couldn`t really change now. The real problem with tricolours is not that they are bad flags - some are quite good - it`s just that they are a hang over from a time when fewer countries had flags and tricolour space wasn`t so crowded. These days no-one should be using a tricolour if they can avoid it. It`s not that tricolours are bad per se; people should just know better than to start using one after say, 1900."

I liked his little "Makes me nauseous" graphic.

I don`t think raging nationalism is the point here. Personally, I`ve always felt the Canadian flag was too much like a logo.

I do agree with every flag that had the "Makes me nauseous" icon. Some of those were hard on the eyes.
