And the fact that he will die in Prison after being found guilty of multiple child molestations.

Australia's flag is superior, since we have the Union Jack plus the Southern Cross and a big star to represent the states .

No sorry, the Australian flag looks like an unsuccessful attempt of a 4-grader of creating a flag, by using paint and scaling down the Union Jack and adding an ugly tone of blue with some white stars. Same story with the rest of the countries that have the Union Jack in the top left corner, just looks awful.

The Jack looks way better then the star-spangled banner.

Really the American Flag and the Union Jack are basically both more similar than not. They are both British in origin and reflect anglo design elements. The US flag is heavily based on George Washingtons family crest in England. You will find similar design in the Washington family manor next to Althorp. All that being said, truth be told every time I see an American flag when I get back to the US I feel this sense of PHEW im home. That flag invokes a sense of freedom and identity and massive overwhelming power and scale that would make me choose it personally over the Union Jack.

Nah, I think most under over 30 would. But, yeah, he can rot in jail.

Both flags are just as beautiful

Union Jack has classy design, while US flag has trendy design.

Neither. They both equally have likable and unlikable qualities.
