Question Georgia State Flag Icon Change Request

Since I'm currently the only relatively active Georgian in here from the Confederate States Of America, and since there are only 2 Georgians in here anyway at the moment, period...Bodi_Donarsson being the other one...I request that the current Georgia State flag icon ( ) be changed by the Administration herein to our old 1956–2001 flag (the icon of which I've fabricated and attached:--> ), because this is the version of our flag that old-school Georgia conservatives, like myself, very much prefer and generally insist upon (long story) out in non-cyber 'life;' and it is indeed a fact (believe me) that nearly 100% of persons who would join a Forum like Skadi from the State Of Georgia in North America would be of this/our ilk. Thank you, y'all.

Son of Wotan 's reputation has not travelled afar.

I second this notion.

I am also a life long resident of Georgia and would love to see the Ga flag icon changed if possible.

Could the old flag of the Northern countries by added as a country flag?


Preferably with the title 'Norden', or 'Nordic Union'.

If even the Gelbiaßler demand their flag it's time to finally add the proper flag for Württemberg.

Why not just "Kalmar" or "Kalmar Union"?

To us from the right side of the Weißwurstäquator, you're all Gelbfiaßler.

PS: Working on a form in which you kindly sign Augsburg over to us.

Would it be possible to separate Elsass from Lothringen in the flags and locations list ?

First, me and most of the Alsatians don't feel any real connection between us and the Lorrains. Many historical events even created some kind of hatred between us, and we are often mocked by them on many subjects (the contrary is true too, to a lesser degree though).

I know the word Elsass often comes with Lothringen, mostly because we were part of the same Reichsland when we still belonged to Germany, but as I said this is quite an artificial union, as there has never been any true kinship between us.

Secondly, the Cross of Lorraine showing up on the Rot un Wiss (the Alsatian flag) is quite disgusting for many reasons :

Quote:
Its shape comes from the Christian cross on which Pontius Pilate added the sentence Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum (Jesus of Nazareth, king of the Jews) above the Christ.
It was also the symbol of the "freed France" during WW2, and was considered as an extremely patriotic symbol of France (it was actually used in the army in opposition to the German Hakenkreuz).

A 30 meters high Cross of Lorraine has been erected in 1948 by the Général de Gaulle in Thann, Elsass, to "celebrate the Alsatian resistance" and to show the belonging of Elsass to France. It was also placed in a way it could be seen from the German plain, on the other side of the Rhein, as a sort of sign of humiliation ...



Btw, there's an interesting story about that cross, it has been destroyed by the Schwarze Wölfe, a former great independentist organization in Alsace : http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schwarze_Wölfe

Well, to summarize, could it be possible to remove this flag :



And split it like this :


For Lorraine.


For Alsace.

Thanks.

As the current flag for Württemberg is wrong(it's more reminiscent of the colours of the Wartburgfahne), I'd appreciate it if it were to be replaced with this one:



Thanks in advance.
