    I'm not generally into traditional crested flags as much, and am very swayed by colour.

    You're gonna love the next edition so. That's all I'll say.

    Was it Belém?

    Have 1 already drawn up and ready to go.
    Have 2 at the ''yeah, I reckon we can run those'' stage.
    One or two others at the back of my mind.

    Oh and somewhere down the road we'll be holding the Ultimate Ultimate Battle, where every winner goes into a special tournament.

    Have I said too much?!

    I think you underestimate the difference these tournaments have made to people Omack, especially during the lockdowns last year when lot of us were home alone and needed a distraction. You made a difference to a lot of us and as you can see we enjoyed them so still coming back for more.

    oh cool, I felt like I missed loads of this especially the earlier in the day rounds.

    glad to see I made it into the wafflers club :cool:

    I missed the result and the ensuing penalty shootout, so just catching up now. Delighted that having missed them I still managed to be involved in the final decision, it truly is a special flag.

    Omack, you've outdone yourself with this one, thanks for a truly epic and hugely enjoyable game. And special credit to Kathleen for doing what the rest of us were too lazy to do and actually find out about the flags. :)

    No, I reckon that there'll be loads of colourful ones. Durazno and Chubut didn't have crests.

    Sometimes it's not needed thiugh. Some people it suits to just look st something and say yes or no. I just love that flags have a story to tell. To be honest i didn't see the albatross on the TdF flag. I just saw a white irregular line. But once i read about the albatross and its meaning I was sold. But also reading about the Brazilian flag and realising that the arrangement of stars had meanings on 3 or 4 levels. It really does help me to look at something i have i have seen hundreds of times with a new appreciation.

    Yes it was - feels like a nice bit of art more that a traditional flag, I liked it a lot :)

    Which way would you have went? Would've been a deciding vote actually...

    I prefer the design on tierre but like the colors more on caraboba. Honestly, I probably would have went caraboba

    I somehow thought the final was Saturday. I would have been unable to choose between the two finalists. A draw seems like a complete validation of these two being the heavyweight contenders and both can consider themselves winners here.

    This was the first of these I managed to get any votes in on time but I'll be looking out for the next ones. Great idea and great craic.
