I was wondering if it would be possible to add a flag for Northern Ireland?

The problem however is that technically Northern Ireland doesnt actually have an official flag!!!

This flag is in fact the flag of the Northern Ireland Government suspended in 1972 and even though it it still very commonly flown and would be my choice of flag coming from the Unionist side of the political divide I do understand that this flag has "Sectarian" connotations.

24704

So I would ask if anyone is offended or does not think this flag should be used on the WAB.

If that is so I would be perfectly happy to have the Ulster Flag displayed instead as I am indded an Ulsterman. Flag of the Provence of Ulster is:

24705

I don't know if it's worth anything to whoever makes these decisions, but coming from the opposite, nationalist, position I'd like to say I'd take absolutely no offence or umbridge at the idea of the flag being availdible. I'm a fellow Ulsterman and my choice of flag is rather clear (clue: it's green white and orange:biggrin:) but anyone from a Unionist position should be entitled to make the other choice, and any flag that they feel represents that, as a basic right.

There are many things that divide the people of Ireland, but there are also many that unite us, and I'd imagine being supportive of the right to express yourself, regardless of what you're expressing, is one that we both hold dear. So this Republican Socialist/Nationalist would like to add his voice to Arty's request - IIRC there's something to do regional flags, rather than politics (ie the board has Spanish, but not Basque, French, but not Breton, etc). As a shout-out to Glyn a Corish flag would be nice too:biggrin:.

While in general I have no objection to this, the problem is that the flag pack used by WAB simply does not have the required flag. I started looking for one that would fit (small animated, waving flag), but so far found none that would not look completly out of place among the others. Should I find one I'll add it (and feel free to tell me should you find one on your own).

A man has a right to stand under his flag.....Its man who causes damage......not the flag........ I have absolutely no objections to this at all.

Wait, there's a difference between Irish, North Irish, Scottish, English, and Welch? All y'all look the same to me. Some of you sound funnier than others when you speak, though.:biggrin:

@ Tarek - No problem if you cant get a flag. The Union Jack will suffice until such times as I bacome a Naturalised US Citizen :)

@ 7th - I get around all over the place, currently in California "Doin some stuff"

@ Crooks, thanks, I just wanted to make sure that if It was available for me to use that flag Yourself and our other Irish Wabbits would not take offense as thats not the type of guy I am.
