Now listen carefully, this gets a bit complicated.

We started with:

But thought the beer was a bit weak, so to get a dram o' the good stuff we got the Saltire.
Anyway, after vdeciding skirts, snow and testicles were a poor mix, we headed south for:

No pun intended libra but I do not find any big deal with flags. The symbols and history of a nation is useless nowadays with them being burned on the streets by its own citizens.

Thankyou for all the great flags, it's good to see them. I started life off with

just the top left hand corner of this one, but now I'm very proud and happy to

end up with the whole thing :wink:

You should be proud, it represents all the good your country has done
and all the good, kind, reasonable, generous, tolerant people in your country,
not just those who have disgraced it.

PS DSW, please could you find a smaller "St Andrew"?
this page is driving me crazy!

I'm just old, I have doubts about the game of musical flags the politico's are so fond of. Mind you, for you and your Northern neighbors it is a slightly different situation to our's.
