    I noticed that Wales has its own flag. Is it possible for us Yanks to have the option of displaying state flags? Can I be indulged and have the California flag?

    I guess I'm still suffering from post 11/2 shock. I'll work on my avatar.

    I've said this a thousand times. the little flags might look nice, but who in the @#$% knows what country they belong to. Just write the name of the country. does anybody know the flag of the Maldives? How about Iceland? How about putting the country's name in english next to the little flag. that way the non-English speakers can drive themselves crazy locating the flag page and looking up the little flags.

    Yep, I know the flags of Iceland and the Maldives.

    So call me a freak if you want. Although the fact that you've heard of the Maldives suggests your grasp on geography is a lot better than many people's.

    Ok, I didn't know where it was, but to save everyone else some trouble: http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/mv.html

    I keep getting the Commonwealth flags confused. I was playing a guy from New Zealand, and I thought it was somewhere else. A few red spots on a flag can make a difference!

    Maybe some ALT tags for the flags would sort this out?

    I hate to point this out to you but wales isn't a country. It is a principality.

    Quick, what's the flag of Lichtenstein? Aha! After a few big countries nobody knows these flags. It's the same with natiional anthems. Ever hear them in the Olympics. I could write better national anthems. One day I was listening to the anthem of an eastern country (i will not name), but their anthem sounded suspiciously like Pop Goes the Weasel. Too many flags, too many countries, too few brain cells left.
