I like all countries and flags, they are all the same, its the people who stand behind the symbol such as a cloth or land that make it either great or a pile of dog shitYou have to admit that some designs are more interesting or appealing than others though. The experiences of those in a nation and the purely aesthetic values of a color-splashed, oft rectangular symbol don't exactly correlate
Ideas, art, things, human beeings, cultures, flags, statues, presidents, laws, words
are given power by the meanings and ideas that push the object, alone a object is meaningless, but with enough people saying the item or thing or idea is great. That item or idea or word becomes something we know
You as a individual will break the law and walk across the street but not at the intersection because its A not something you care about enough to uphold, and B there is Boone there to tell you to not do it,
a president is impeached because people rally against him
Art is given power by the ideas behind it
Olympics are held with people
I am who I am because people know that my being is not a bad one
Ideas are made broken or changed because of people... the church... the earth is flat... gravity and the apple
A flag is a thing that wig people behind it can change a idea...
Do you see the 800,000 people chanting world wide that the picture below of the flag I just made is part of the best country in the world.
no.. because I have no people behind it
The flag is a art piece, a idea, and all flags have enough shit behind it that I cannot pick one
Because the ideas behind it is always flawed, and always faulty at some level
