    General consensus is that currently Palestine is a state not a country.

    You could've had the Jordan flag.
    I agree you should have your own flag though.

    Surely that would be two states then.

    The implementation of the Oslo Agreement between Israel and the PLO has lead to the need for ISO 3166-1 code elements for the areas under the authority of the Palestinian Authority.

    06: What is the ISO 3166-1 code for Palestine?
    A: The name we use in ISO 3166-1 for the area under the authority of the Palestinian Authority is the UN approved Occupied Palestinian Territory. The code elements for this territory are PS, PSE and 275 (alpha-2, alpha-3 and numeric, respectively).

    If RHP doesn't have the flag, then it not recognized as a country. RHP works with the United Nations now, didn't you get the email?

    A Territory is not a country. A State is not a country. Currently Palestine is not a country. Eventually it may be one but right now it doesn't get a flag because it isn't a country.

    would you say scotland and england are countries (both have flags on RHP)?? I had always though it was the UK that was the country.

    Ok! It is not a country yet.
    It is something like a country -Palestinian Authority-
    I have no other nationality, and it would be unfair to force me to use other flags.

    I think it should be added, or at least add a field to country list where it says: "UN-DEFINED", "PEOPLE OF NO WHERE", "VOID", or something like this, but it seems site admin is ignoring me!!!

    by the way, we have a guy in the united nations, isn't this enough?

    A country doesn't have to be an independent state. Scotland and England are the former, but not the latter.

    International status as country region state or whatever need have no bearing on whether a flag is available on RHP.

    Antartica is not a country but RHP has a flag
    Hong Kong is not a country but RHP has a flag

    Some people say sport should be seperated from politics.
    as this is a Chess site, let FIDE be the guide.
    The Palestine Chess Federation is a member of FIDE
