Yes as all flags do. Especially when you know the meaning of its design. So many flags in the world. The US has each State with a flag and all the major cities have a flag.

I remember a thread on C-D I came across asking which US major city has the best flag. The city of Chicago won. Some cities fly their flag more then other cities too. Chicago does.


CHICAGO FLAG WON BEST CITY FLAG ON C-D VOTING.
A couple pictures I zoomed in on pictures with the Chicago city flag in.

I've always liked the Union Jack. It's just never looked like an enemy flag to me.

I'm American and have always loved our flag design, but the Union Jack is a bigger icon plus it's three flag designs merged in one.

Neither. I prefer the England flag for the isles and the Confederate flag for the US.

Only before WWII the Union Jack was a bigger icon.

Sadly I think most people do know who Rolf Harris is, he is currently serving 5 years and 9 months for Sex Crimes and has now been charged with a further eight offences with the trial set to start on 9th January 2017 at Southwark Crown Court.

I realized that I never talked about my opinion. As an American I will always prefer our flag... it just speaks to me. The Union Jack has a great design I think, and but I always found it weird how common it is. Lots of clothes here stateside sell clothes with the Union Jack on it. Lots of countries have adopted the Union Jack for their own country (get your own design, lol) and so has Hawaii as I stated earlier. I feel that both are some of the most recognized flags across the world... I voted for both but I still like the American flag better.

Ok so I accidentally clicked the vote button instead of the American flag and now it only looks like I voted for the Union Jack I'm not a Benedict Arnold I swear haha.
