    Flags & signatures

    Hi,

    Can't seem to get the Scotland flag to appear in my signature. I clicked on the tag in the Smilie box and got the tag in the text, but my signature only shows the text and not the flag.

    UK flag works just fine, though.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Aargh! That's because I forgot to put in the new code. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>
    I've fixed it now. Thanks for reminding me.

    Thanks.

    (By way of thanks, of course, and not even remotely so I can see how the fixed flag looks...<grin>)

    I see NI is now the only part of the UK without its own flag on the board.

    Now, now. <img src=/S/scold.gif border=0 alt=scold width=50 height=15> We haven't had much of that sort of thing recently, touch wood.

    No offense by any means... but it looks more like a red hamburger helper guy in the middle of a star with a crown hovering above him... what is that red thing Sparky? <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20> <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15>
    have fun

    You're flying a few controversial flags there. Not your fault, but...

    It's a hand, in a star, with a kings' crown over it... isn't it? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    I go with the hand, Drk, but I wonder why the first finger is black.

    I believe the full definition of the United Kingdom is:
    "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man"

    Re: Flags & signatures

    According to the <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.flags.net/NOIR.htm>World Flag Database</A>
    <hr>The flag shown is no longer official, although it is used when Northern Ireland participates in its own right in international sporting events. The official flag of Northern Ireland is now the Union Flag. It should be noted that the above flag is closely connected with the Protestant community of Northern Ireland and is unpopular with sections of the Roman Catholic community. The Irish tricolour, or the flag of the Province of Ulster (similar to the above flag but with a gold background, the red hand on a white shield instead of a star and no crown) are sometimes used by the Roman Catholic community.<hr>
    hence, Geoff's statement, regarding flying controversial flags. I think the black finger is an anomoly (not intentional) in the image posting.

    Thanks for attributing me knowledge I don't have! Actually, I was thinking the green flag might be getting a tad less popular these days.

    Sorry Geoff, I certainly didn't intend to put words your in your mouth. I also have not intention to cause controversy, just stating what I am aware of.

    Brian,

    That's fine. I don't mind being attributed with abilities above the ones I have <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    That was quite interesting about the NI flag.

    I guess if we have already allowed Scotland, Ontario and California flags, there's no problem with NI- even if it's not official.
