I ment aren't making a fuss, sorry, my bad.

Im not saying anything in seriousness Ender, please don't think I am looking to insult anyone.

I think the comments made by myself and DLD were all made in jest, as a referance to British Pride.

Im not actually sure of the nationality of Tau Online tbh.

Northern Ireland and Ireland are NOT to be confused. There has been a long and bloody war over this. It's best to just accept the differences.

Also the scots have their own government and there has been an even longer war...
Braveheart was pretty insignificant. William wallace was a fighter from the lowlands who became a legend, but it was the Bruce who did more for Scotland (despite what Mel Gibson might think). That wasn't the end of the fighting either...
There was also the jacobite uprising, and had the jacobites continued on towards London, they just might have taken it, the French were ready to invade and it could have been a much different story.

As it is, a lot of Scots want independence and don't recognise the Union Flag at all. Nor do a lot of the Welsh.
The Northern Irish do have their own flag, and it is on the Union Flag. The Welsh have nothing though... they are happy with their sheep I guess. :P

Before anyone asks, the Union Jack is a naval flag and it is red with the Union Flag in the top left corner.

Enderwiggin, you are showing a severe lack of understanding about British culture if you think it is just ego.
The Scots (and the Welsh and Irish) suffered GREATLY under the English rule. They had their lands taken from them, their families butchered and a lot were sent to some god awful place like America or Australia.
Still the lands won't be returned to their rightful owners (unlike the Maoris and a few other cultures who had their lands taken from them). I'd say there is a lot more to it. Perhaps read about it before you make the decision that a person from one country should stand true to a flag invented by the people that took them over by force.
Like I said - Swastikas for Jews? Didn't think so.
I don't like the Union Flag and I never have.

Oi! At least we have warm weather, beaches, cold beer, and hot women (and men if thats the way you swing). Also we have an animal no one else has, the Kangaroo. Therefore I disagree with 50% of your statement :P
At least we still recognize the sovereign head of the Commonwealth, unlike our Atlantic cousins....

So far the majority of Brits have liked the system as-is so I fail to see how I'm suddenly echoing something different. Unless you haven't read the replies in both threads so far aside from your own.

So you insult my country by glossing over the fact that we suffered at the hands of the British and your calling my country (and the Australia) "horrible" by your standards. Yeah, your argument totally doesn't look like an ego boost.

Jayne- Completely understood.

Dangerman- You guys do have very beautiful women.

Don't get me wrong people, there's no malice intended in my words. There just hasn't appeared to be an example of "why" to me yet that I am curious to get to the bottom of.

Ender, dontlookdown, I think you guys are taking this flag thing way too seriously. I highly doubt FT has a problem adding a few more flags if people would rather be represented by it... :-\
