    First post, eh? I know- you just finished reading Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People", didn't you?

    Here's a "welcome" salute just for you: :salute:

    50 stars for 50 states; 13 stripes for 13 colonies. Love it or hate it, our flag serves its purpose.

    Personally, I am not a big fan of mixing such bright colors. Design wise, I prefer the Japanese flag and the old USSR flag.

    I am not a big fan of germany's flag though. The colors turn me off.

    Sorry - I'd reply with something more interesting but the new vitamins I've been taking have reduced my capacity to give-a-shit.

    "Imagination" aside, we've taken that flag many more places than the British East India Company ever did. Matter of fact, I believe it was flying high while your army was taking its whipped asses back home.:dev3:

    Not to mention the fact that the creator(s) of the American flag were also obviously paying homage to our British roots (a bit like the Aussie flag, wouldn't you say?)...the flag was not meant to be a "kiss off" to England, but rather an artistic representation of our nation - where it came from, what it represents, etc.

    If you were trying to get a rise out of people, bloke, you chose a silly way to do it. We agree with you! Our flag does look a lot like the ones you posted...so what? LOL.

    Anyway, welcome to the board despite your somewhat unusual start!

    The originals are dead and the copy is the leader of the world. Hmmmmmm, yeah, I should be pissed.
