    Read the title.
    And also, do you think that it really seems fitting and adequate to the country you're living in? Are you ready to salute it without feeling kinda awkward about doing so?

    I've never really been a fan of the US flag. I'd prefer something more symmetrical.

    I like the US flag. The California flag looks better though.

    I like the US flag. It's unique. It's actually not particularly beautiful, but I like the uniqueness a lot.

    It's awesome, full of sacrifice and symbolism. I prefer it in classy synthetic threads, rather than linens/cottons though.

    All flags with red, white, and blue are lame and pretty uncreative.

    It's okay. I'd say it could use some more diverse colors and shapes but then in an alternative universe, I'd probably say the opposite.

    I think my Sub national flag is better than my national one.

    Oops, It seems that I forgot a word: "How much do you like your national flag?" :p
    Sorry for everyone who had some trouble understanding what I really meant.

    It´s boring! Well, at least it has some black in it, which sets it apart from other flags a bit.

    I´ve probably posted them 10 times already, but I would have preferred Germany to have a "Nordic Cross" - flag. The first proposal is from 1919 and the other one from 1948.

    design is cool, but the association with the nordic countries maybe not so called for when trying to get on friendly terms with france.

    I still have impression that are elegant flags for some evil empire. Current Germany is cool.

    Aesthetically ours isnt up to much, but I like what it symbolises, green for Catholic Ireland, Orange for the Nordy prods and white for the peace between them (they get a free pass because I dont think it occured to them anyone might be neither in those days). A nice sentiment.

    The German flag should have a big 4.0 on it, cause they are the superior race.

    I really like the Finnish flag.

    Nice and aesthetic, not too complicated or too colourful.

    Even though I'm not a big fan of crosses, that one definately sits there nicely.
