That's cuz the liberals chose it.

In one of the classrooms at my school there is a poster that has all the top proposed canadian flags....some of them were so much cooler than the leaf.

Now adding to the war....Americans don't know how to spell "colour".

hehe, actually when I am browsing around PF I don't even notice where people are from most of the time, I read people's posts and to me it's as if rather than having nationalities, we all just have the fact that we all live on the same planet. Well, until this thread, cuz in this thread it surely doesn't seem that way. I find it kind of stupid that people steryotype others due to nationality,

I'm in Canada and I hear canadians all the time steryotyping Americans (mostly negatively) and i always stand up for the Americans because in many cases, the Canadians (in these cases not all Canadians) are wrong to judge people a certain way before even knowing them. My history teacher last year was very anti-american, (and very leftist) and i couldn't stand listening to her cuz it made her sound like such a retard making such large generalizations. (and cuz i'm right wing so I never agreed with her in the first place)

For example, we took a trip to NYC and at the border she was following the US border guy down the isle of the coach and trying to do what she thought was 'help him do his job' so he told her to shut up and go sit down. (HILARIOUS if you were there and knew my teacher...I could see her trying to avoid hitting him over the back of the head...thank god she didn't). So anyway, afterwards she went on about how americans are so rude and impolite etc...after one american example. I felt like saying there are people from every country like that not just the US and also just because he was like that doesn't mean all americans are.

So basically I think i'm saying that (this is gonna be lame) "you can't judge a book by its' cover".

well i dunno what u call to the flag of my country, :uhh: but i call it unique :approve: .
while making it the makers kept in mind the hindu flag structure (triangle) and put 2 triangles. red for courage and blue for peace. sun and moon for life of the country till they(sun & moon) exist. :rolleyes:

Canadians are evil.

They team up with soon to be giant Penguin based media corporations in the US to try to sell people a load of horsecrap they just want to hear for pure profit!

Well, there ARE more trees than people.

I think they should go back to the Jack.

But then I also think the USA should have used vertical stripes on their flag so they look thinner. :biggrin:

aaaaah, but the 'u' in colour compensates for the lack of an 'e' at the end that would be necessary to make the 'o' a hard 'o' sound. :tongue2:
