The Honest Flag by Goodyob The Honest Flag by Goodyob
Shouldn't this be your flag, every country ever? After all, the large countries of the world keep crumbling into smaller bits all because its ethnic groups would rather be by themselves rather than part of a large, strong country. However, nationalism is also the glue that holds some of the world's best and brightest together, such as Italy and Germany who were split up once upon a time, and also the two Koreas, who despite their differences still seek eventual reunification.

This flag is not intended to be related in any way to Saudi Arabia, except for the fact that I used their flag as a base for this (obviously).

This is intended to be my submission for #MapsAndFlags's Unity contest.

UPDATE 09/04/2011: Yay, it won!

Maybe it would have better for Europe and the rest of the world if Germany had remained divided.... We can't really consider this country is "great".

v- There's nothing wrong with communism, if you wish for a direct-democratic way for those who actually make the resources in one's area/commune/country to have control over them. That is, if you follow the Marxist principles, and don't get mislead by the state-capitalist regimes, who have over the years claimed to be socialist.

There was no "tag" intended; I pressed enter before I was able to complete my messages, that is all.

There's a difference between nationalism, and being fond of ones culture. There's nothing positive about blindly following the leads of ultra-conservative just because they call themselves "truer".

Nothing wrong with Nationalism, except when it goes into the extreme nature

Well, it is currently considered to be nonsense as nations are basically mere products of people's thoughts ...

In that sense, then, there should be far more nations on the earth, as in todays times no two or three people share simular thoughts. Not even in a family unit.

Yes, but a nation is not defined by opinions by that theory, but by people identifying with that nation for one reason or another. That is why there are 81 million Germans, while they do not agree on most things, they feel a part of the greater community of the nation of "Germany". How else would you define a nation?
