Hail Averaga!


#3

Land of Blendy!


#4

So the average flag looks something like this then.


#5

If red represents blood, then it looks correct.


#6

I salute it, vigorously.


#7

Quite the opposite. It’s also anti-Japanese. Wait til Sailor Moon finds out!


#8

There’s an interestingly Union Jack-looking piece up on the side there.


#9

Tut tut; Or and Argent are not properly called colours in Heraldry, but metals!
A vexillologist they may be, an armorist they are not!

(That’s still a really neat project though.)


#10

Anyone else getting Ænima vibes?


#11

Where the inhabitants are well, averaged.


#12

We must arm and strike back against those perfidious Outliers!


#13

I wonder what it would look like scaled for each country’s population and/or size.


#14

It’s not the size of the flag that matters. It’s the way the flag is waved.


#15

It looks like a bad, cheap silk screen “trendy” t-shirt from a generic chain of department store.


#16

Looks like someone pulled packing tape off a nice shiny present.


#17

Yep… and here’s why; more than a few countries/territories which still sport the UJ in their flags.


#18

“U and J, U and J!!”

Hey, pointless patriotism is fun if you ignore the horrific colonial history! :smiley:


#19

That’s the little bit of Empire that the Brexiters think they’re getting back…
