Hi Guys

I'm just back from Malta - beeping cold here isn't it.

Well you did all the work identifying Russia and Alaska for me to find http://zebratigerfish.blogspot.co.uk/2011/01/russian-american-post-colonial-heritage.html
The writer states 'I have created post-historical Russian Heritage Flags that are based on the flags of modern states of the USA and one province of Canada' .....
so I wonder is it a recognised flag, has anyone adopted it for use? I have no idea how that sort of thing works but we have had flags here from Hersheys Tin Tin.

Dear Dave,

As the originator of the Topic:    to save holding things up any further (there is a possibility Tim is not an active Mayhem member now), I have looked at your Link and you are obviously correct with what you have found O0 :-))

Well done Dave, and over to you for the next item/flag :-))

Regards, Bernard

Searched the Polynesian atolls and had an entertaining and educational morning, dusky maidens in grass skirts etc...oh yes I found Tokelau to be one of the more interesting reads. Dozens of tiny states and communities in the Pacific.

That's what happens when you do a quick guess based on domain and population (also about 1400 in Niue). More research next time.....

Can you get the coconut confection bar Bounty in Sweden? Just idle curiousity - I'm not allowed to eat one anyway.

...GB WW2! {-) You posted the wrong pic.. It is Arrow5's go, but I think you are wanting to know a flag rather than putting an entry up, so, please re enter your flag, and I am sure one Member or another will be pleased to help you :-)) Regards, Bernard
