    I fly the peruvian flag when at home in Peru on and around fiestas patrias. I also own an english flag and a british flag, but I don't fly them, because people just don't round here.

    I own a union flag which I bought on a school trip to France to wave on the bus at french motorists. It currently lives on my wall next to a picture of the Queen of Canada.

    I have a flew plastic ones too, a flag of Jersey (from Jersey) and a Blue Ensign for not particular reason.

    I've never flown one though.

    Got a big Finnish flag up on my wall. Some 150 cm high. It's a big worn, though, as I put it in the washing machine, and apparently you're not supposed to wash these cheap printed flags. Maybe I should get a new one... :p:

    I've been thinking it'd be nice to own all the flags of the 6 countries I've lived in. But it always ends up in a realisation that I've better use for some £50...
    Haha, nice flag to have. I have a mini (table top style) Finnish flag and an English (St George's) flag in the same style on the top of my bookshelf. I got them whilst I was living in Sweden, mainly to ensure my Swedish friends knew I wasn't supporting Sweden when they came round to watch icehockey/football on tv

    I have the saltire, I've 'worn' it once to a rugby game but thats about it. I only wear it when I'm being extra patriotic (even though I'm not Scottish lol) but I'll wear it to the Scotland France game next month as I hate the French (just rugby team (?)) so need to support Scotland even more lol I shamefully don't own a tricolour!

    I have 3 flags. One of England, another of Great Britain and the third one of India. I don't really use them unless I go to sporting events or something.

    I have a District of Columbia one in my bookcase, and a Union Jack one in a stick that I got for Last Night of the Proms.

    Tho I felt a bit of a prick waving it.

    Yes, I'll settle down and become a nice, well-behaved little tory. :rolleyes:

    Oh, and I find it amusing that you're nationalistic enough to want to fly a Union Jack outside your house, but you call your mum by the American "mom".
    Read the signature, TSR Labour Party. One does not have to be Right-Wing to celebrate one's country. National pride unites rather than divides, and can be a symbol of hope and strength and a unification of past and future for everyone who lives in this green and pleasant land. Hopefully as a nation we should be able to overcome and drown out the far-right's hijacking of the Union Jack. Read Billy Bragg's book The Progressive Patriot for more on how flag-waving and being proud of your country is not a remotely right-wing activity, but we just have a negative attitude towards it in our country.

    On your second point, being proud of your country has nothing to do with resisting foreign influences... but more to the point where I come from, it's spelt and pronounced M-O-M!

    @Pretz Should I stoop to your level and judge your attitudes towards socialism based on your avi? Or would making subtle remarks go wasted?
    'Wow' I have a Che flag,it must mean I have no knowledge of the different types of socialism or his background.......actually your wrong.
