Did your school have the blue hymn books?

Lord of the Dance was a regular favourite from it, as was If I Had a Hammer, and A Man For All The People (the latter being No.27 in the book if i remember rightly).

Yep, we did Yellow Submarine too, and When i'm 64, I think a lot of my primary school teachers at that time grew up in the 60's as they really did like their Beatles songs.

Incidentally, Christianity does have an "official" flag of sorts.

Kinda boring, honestly. No wonder nobody really uses it these days.

Looks like they've forgotten to design 3/4 of it

Perhaps you'd prefer the Eastern Orthodox version?

Are you not seeing all of it? You need faith to see the full picture.

Some of the other Christian flags that exist are pretty metal. The Salvation Army's flag could be a doom metal album title:

Oh right - the Brazil flag. Especially when it’s painted on some hot mama at a World Cup :wub:

Oh1sama on Reddit designed a flag for Welsh pacifism. I thought it was pretty cool!

I'd tell you how to fix this but, knowing you, it's probably some crappy British nationalist, colonial-era flag with a Union Jack in the corner, so I won't bother.

Fixed it! My old site I always use is working again, it must have just been a mistake :)

On the subject of Antarctica, I really like the design of the official Flag of Antarctica.

Image

I know it's just a picture of the island (like that's never been done before), but adding the latitude and longitude lines makes for a pretty cool design.

Enjoy your flags, but follow the flag code!

Shaun White has apologised for dragging the American flag and accidentally stepping on it in the aftermath of his halfpipe gold medal win on Wednesday.

White, 31, became the first snowboarder to win three Olympic titles, securing a 100th all-time Winter Games gold for the United States.

But his treatment of the flag was met with an angry reaction online.

"I definitely didn't mean any disrespect, the flag flying on my house right now is way up there," he said.

"So sorry for that, but I'm definitely very proud to be part of Team USA and be an American and to be representing everyone back home."

The US Code for respecting the flag says it "should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise".

It also states the flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, used as wearing apparel or bedding, and never used as part of a costume or athletic uniform.
