What a great idea.  I don't know if this will work, but can you do a POW MIA flag?

Thanks Ticia but that's not the right flag.

That would be great! 

A Marine Corps one would be fantastic, too.

Can we do a Christian flag also, please?

I know, I'm so sorry. I did fix it, but it must have been after you saw it. Sorry about that!
Here's the correct code:

I had some concerns, doing flags that aren't country/state/location only, like the Christian or the Rainbow flags, but I figure that these are a way to give information about the person posting. If someone identifies with a certain flag, I don't see a problem with it. As long as people don't start fights over flags, we should be just fine.

That sounds fair to me.  And, if it's decided that we will only do flags that represent our geographical location, I will delete the others.  Thanks for making all of the links.

Thank you.  I thought it might be too detailed.

I think people should be able to post whatever flag they'd like to but I'd like to see the country flag in there somewhere, as that was the original point of putting in a flag in the first place.  Or at least a highly recognizable flag for the majority of posters, like the Texas flag.

Some of the flags, even country flags, are going to be too small to see much detail but at least it alerts others to the fact that the poster is not American and that etiquette/culture may be different in the country they are posting from.

Using a chainsaw is as close as we come to having a lightsaber in this life.

Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard.  Many pirates had personalized flags, not the traditional Jolly Roger.

Alright, here's the flag. It's really hard to see any detail on it, though.
