Okay, so, this flag means this. . . . The white stars represent the space aliens who landed centuries ago. The blue is the ocean. The space aliens landed in the ocean! Then, the red stripes represent red diesel fuel, commonly used for tractors and recreational vehicles such as ATC's and Quad Runners. . . because everyone knows that this country couldn't have happened if it weren't for diesel! wink And finally the white stripes. Well, the white stripes are designed to respond to alien radar. As the wind bends the reflective white, micro reflections bounce across the galaxy. Alien radar can pick it up. "And what do they use to power their ships??!" You may ask yourself . . . red diesel fuel. wink


George Bush is an alien.

Tired Hiker
Oh yeah, I was talking about this flag . . .

White- Signifies purity and innocence

Red- Signifies valor and bravery

Blue- Signifies Vigilance, perseverance, and justice

Mr Zero
Scotland has 2 flags - the saltier cross and the lion rampant. The saltier (often called the st andrews cross) is symbolic of St andrew the apostle being crucified. It's white on blue because of a vision (before a battle with the anglo saxons) of clouds in a cross shape against a blue sky. The angos were defeated and St A became scotlands patron saint.

More popular with the "true" Scot is the red lion rampant on a yellow background. The rampant lion was the heraldic token of King William I and harks back to a time when Scotland was independent - hence it's popularity. The noble rampant lion symbolises the valiant soldier - who like the lion "preys on men rather than women, and they do not kill children"

Mr Zero
eg:

Burn all the flags. They are meaningless.

m!$hA

http://www.restful-night.co.uk/images/other/general/austflag.jpg
the stars on the australian flag symbolise australia's bright future, and it's four moral virtues of justice: preduence, temperance and fortitude.
the seven sided star represents the six original states and territories of australia.
then there is the "southern cross" which is "based on the british blue ensign"

well thats what it said on two websites anyway erm hope its right embarrasment

pinsleepe
big grin big grin big grin

You know that!

m!$hA

Mr Zero
Speaking as someone who has many good Australian chums - I'm stunned to see the words "temperance" and "Australia" in the same sentence...

Holland flag:

Blue is water
Red is land
White is peace between them (were under the water yet it does not flood over the land)

JacopeX
Red and white were the colours of the Inca Empire. Red represents the blood shed in the fight for independence. White stands for peace and justice.
