    Did anyone notice that, despite having quite a few active German members, none of them has posted here so far? That's so cute :)

    It said that flying the flag of nosy wise-ass doesn't get you anywhere in this world :p





    Sorry, that was uncalled for >.>

    Since we did the US one and Florida is larger than many countries (like England) I figure it is sorta on topic.

    I imagine it would take a little longer than some of the others, certainly.

    Here's the older version of Florida's State Seal... I think at one time the Indian Maiden had one breast exposed.

    That one is nice as well. It's a shame its so tiny on the flag and you can't make out any details at all unless you're holding it.

    What's our national emblem? Delicious! :D We've got the kangaroo and emu, and I can vouch that kangaroo is very tasty.

    For Scotland it's thistles, lions and unicorns, because that's just how we roll. Actually when we were at Doune Castle, which was used for GOT, Monty Python & The Holy Grail, Outlander etc, I snapped this:
