Know your flags!?

Well 2 people asked me why I had the Confederate flag on my tag plate today and even after I told them it was the British flag, they still thought they looked very similar!?

Let's hope nobody with a shotgun around here thinks the same thing!

Ahhh... you've encountered the unfortunately-all-too-common historical, geographical, cultural and political ignorance of the average American.

Those flags look so similar, I can't tell them apart... (rolling eyes)

*smile* clearly Brad is correct. I could spot your British Flag from many others. But the confederate flag I spot all too well. Too bad "the unfortunately-all-too-common historical, geographical, cultural and political ignorance of the average American" is who I encounter where we currently reside. And its just odd "not" to have one right beside your "American Flag". *wink*

Good lord. How embarrassing that people would get them mixed up! Granted, I don't know all flags from all countries, but the British Flag is pretty darn well known as is the confederate one. Nutty people out there...just nutty!

you've had your chance today to educate others then! (and generally, isn't it the ones WITH the confed. flag who have the shotguns?)
