Default member's flag

i wonder why some members of the forum even though located in chez republic for example are using a scotish flag ...

i can understand if someone is originally coming from Taiwan and now days live in holland to like to use his home flag

i cannot understand if someone that is originally from poland uses an australian flag to """add """ more prestige to his sayings ...

above flags is just an example ....

Hi Sakis, In Australia we call people who have migrated from other countries to Australia and taken up Australian citizen ship Australians, and many are very proud of the fact. So if someone from Poland came here and became a citizen, then why shouldn't they fly an Australian flag?

Of course if someone is using another countries flag, but they are neither from that country, nor living there, then one might question what that is about?

Tony.

I think for the flag I'd use the country I'd call home.

The location would merely be where I was at the moment.

You have given me an idea. I have always liked the Japanese flag.

User Control Panel > Edit Details> Additional Info at the bottom. A user can choose any flag that takes their fancy. Friesian is not in the list (it is part of the Netherlands?) AFAIK UK is the only political entity that also has flags for subsets (England, Scotland, Wales) and the EuroZone flag is the only superSet.

Flags were originally added to emphasis the diversity & international nature of the forum, to remind posters that for many English is not a 1st language, and to help with inquires of a local nature.

Wrong frisian flag.
That is the one of the dutch part of Friesland aka West Friesland. There is also East Friesland and North Friesland which are in Germany (the coastal regions of Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein).

This is the one I was thinking of, the flag of East Frisia;
