that's the flag of Gondor which isn't a real place but a nice flag.
Yep, and the best cavalry charge in unrecorded history.  ;D The characters are done in mithril, IIRC.

Come on, the charge of the Rohirrim was a lot better.

I don't like ours (Australia) it has one too many flags on it. It needs to have the Union Jack removed.

If I'm not mistaken, the majority of the Australian population wants to keep the Union Jack in the flag, so it is unlikely to get changed anytime soon.

But hey, Canada's flag had the Union Jack until 1957, see below, so change is not impossible.

I like our flag Dominican Republic, but I might be a bit biased.


Spain and Pakistan I like too.

Which took place on the Pelennor outside of Mina Tirath, the then current capital of Gondor.

True, but it was under the banner of Rohan. Which is also purty

I'm not partial to any of the ones I see as being all that beautiful.

I do like the UK Flag and how it was derived by the assemblage of the crosses of St George, St. Andrew, and St Patrick.
They ended up with a flag that describes the union, is distinctive and is relatively simple.

The USA flag I find neither beautiful or ugly, but do appreciate it being descriptive, adaptable and relatively simple.

Tricolors are kind of meh. Simple, yeah, but other than that not all that interesting.
I think incorporating crests, seals or intricate designs  (like the US states of NY, CT, NJ PA, etc) make the flag less distinctive and too complicated.

The US State flags I do like are Ohio (nice going out of the rectangle!) Rhode Island, New Mexico and Arizona.


A National flag I like is the Seychelles

I realize that it is a territory but Whales is cool. If I had a choice of any flag it would probably be Prussia.

I mean, say what you want about the tenants of National Socialism, Dude, but they did have a decent flag.

Aussie hate change. That's why we still have a foreign woman as our Head of State (Queen Elizabeth II) and a foreign colonial power's flag on our flag.
I have no doubt if it went to referendum we would choose the one we have now, like the Kiwis did when they had a chance to change their flag.

Every time the debate comes up you get the patriots  ::) and old conservatives saying that our soldiers died for this flag. Which is bullshit. No one fights/dies for a flag. They fight for what it represents. The country, its people and its way of life.

I would be happy to keep our flag the same with just the Union Jack removed. Just keep the Southern Cross and the Commonwealth Star (Which has one point for every State and one point representing all territories. 7 in total)

This, pretty much. I'd like to see an Australian head of state and a flag without the Union Jack. My dad is the exact opposite.
