I think Great Britain is England + Scotland + Wales.
United Kingdom is England + Scotland + Wales + Northern Ireland (also known as Great Britain and Northern Ireland).
Ireland is a separate republic, it's that part of the island not called Northern Ireland.
People can show whatever flag they want, and many do. We have lots of Antarcticans here at RHP. 😛
Yes, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and N Ireland...curiously, the northern most part of Ireland is actually in Southern Ireland ( Eire ). It's a 'bit Irish that one,' similar to the U.S and their love of Polak jokes I guess, the same way the British are inclined to 'follow' Irish affairs.
Just to clarify, the U.K is not a republic, so it can't be a seperate one from Ireland...
As regards the flags, there aren't many of us that don't fly one...no reason, nothing whatsoever...I think most are just not inclined to do so.
