    how is it common when only one person on the poll has one? :rolleyes:
    I don't mean common as in lots of people have them (although they do - this poll will be biassed because lots of people don't have their own cars). I mean common as in, erm, less socially nice? A bit like getting gold alloys or a spoiler, I think.

    I don't need a piece of fabric attatched to cheap plastic, made in China, attatched to my car to support my country, thank you.

    did you know that those silly flags have resulted in several thousand pounds worth of extra petrol expenses so far? (due to extra air resistance, therefore each journey costs a little bit more) and this means more pollution. so those little flags are a source of mass destruction really - global warming bla bla bla

    Sorry, I don't feel the need to accessorize my car to prove I support England or Timothy Henman.

    I recently received an e-mail saying that bad drivers have to display a red cross on a white background from the top of their car door, and they have an extra flag for each extra level of bad-ness at driving they reach.

    Hmmmmm...

    Yes, I'm a snob. In situations like this, not afraid to admit it

    A car with an England flag nearly hit me just now :mad:

    I heard that but I heard the IQ version, the lower the IQ the more red and white flags they have to attatch to their cars. Made me laugh.

    I've got one on my mum's car. It almost got destroyed on the motorway on the way back from Exeter today though! I also have a massive flag in the living room. Flags are fun!

    I have no idea. What's wrong with wanting to show your support to your country? Fair enough if you don't want flags on your own car, but what does it matter if other people do? I like my flags and don't care if they're 'common'!
