Now there is a wide variety of flag choices for your profile but there is one missing and if you haven't looked at my avatar yet and guessed what I'm gonna say I'll just straight up say it.
The Confederate War Flag
Not the regular confederate flag you would barely be able to see that because for those who don't know the regular confederate flag is just the confederate war flag in the top left corner then its pretty much white
usa-z-battle-flags-of-confederate-states
Also for those who don't know the third national flag was never official the confederacy was gone before they officially made it there flag.
So there a history lesson for today but back to the topic at hand what do y'all think about having the flag for a flag choice even if the admins can't add flags I'm just curious what everyone thinks.

I have another flag suggestion. I want to be able to put two flags if I want. I think some users would want to put the flag of their country and NATO or the EU, if they are from the EU.

Seriously, it's just a tiny flag underneath your name.

You can't expect the mods to add every single minor flag out there. "Oh but what about the "Derafsh Kāviān", the legendary vexilloid of the Sasanian empire?"

@Palikari - That's a good idea but it might start to look a bit sloppy if they are side by side
@Lazy - Yes you have a point but I requested a flag almost everybody knows about that one you saying im probably not the only one here who doesn't know what it is

This is 2014. There is no confederacy and no need for their flag.

It's not possible to add 2 flags. It's just a profile field and allows a signle select input.

This is 2014. There is no confederacy and no need for their flag.

Then why is there a need for a flag with a question mark on it

You do realize that the majority of the flags on here were not added by user requests such as yours, they came with the forum software.

 

Oh wait, no you don't realize that.

 

Now you know.

You have a 100x100 avatar space and 500x150 signature space for flags such as this as well as any other imagery. The list we have is a default list of countries, if we start adding from every request such as this, the list would be too big and it just isn't necessary. It's just a way of saying where you are from.

 

You don't have to display a flag if you don't like what's on offer either.

 

Edit: the ? flag is just an unknown, unset flag. It's not actually something we've chosen to add.

Is this some kind of joke? Why the hell would you want to show off a confederate flag?

Some people still believe in it, others like how it looks, others enjoy the history of the flag (not just the south but civil war in general).. all kinds of reasons.

 

Though I don't think it needs to be added, that would open the flood gates for racism topics and complaints here in Net Support. I haven't looked yet but is the pirate flag still on the list? That's my fav.

This is 2014. There is no confederacy and no need for their flag.

To be fair, where I live in Gettysburg, half the townspeople fly Confederate flags to commemorate the battle... and perhaps for some humor. You'd be surprised at how many southerners come up to visit, too, who sport confederate flags off the back of their pickup trucks and make angsty comments towards those of us who live here. Some of them even claim that they're going to separate from the Union again soon.  :lol:

 

Still, it's not something that exists anymore and it's not something we recognize, so there's no reason for it to be a choice here, just as other flags aren't represented, either (i.e. Soviet Union).

I know in where I live, you've got your silly redneck kids who think they're so very country by wearing camouflage everywhere and "mudding" in pickup trucks their parents bought them. For what it's worth, their attitude reminds me a lot of those suburban white kids who try to be "gangsta". You got middle/upper class kids who live in gated communities who try their hardest to be white trash. Hell, they're so thick-headed they mistake the battle flag for the national flag.

But yeah, like Ryan said, there's no need for a confederate flag to be here if the confederates haven't been around in 100 years. Another thing I'm curious about is how your flag is "NATO" and your profile says you live in Michigan, which was part of the union during the civil war.

I mean..what I'm saying is this flag has a very iffy history. It's akin to requesting a nazi flag.

To much to comment on so this one stuck out the most
The Confederate flag is often related to slavery, The reason the states who joined the confederacy is because the US government was not giving the states the rights to make there own laws.
The confederacy was not created just because they wanted slavery
Then there are the people who just think its cool you have to know the history behind it for it to really be cool and also know the difference between the different types of flags
And I don't know about the pirate flag I'm gonna go check now
EDIT: No they don't have the pirate flag anymore but they have a Mars flag for some reason(I put it on)
