Flag Hagz AHEAD OF OUR TIME

// Oh the Gyronny (Part 2 of XX)//

A gyrating saltire, symbolizing the 3 rivers of the Assyrian Homeland. A rubber stamp of approval Assur-es the quality of George Bit Atanus’ design. Although I’m loathe to hate on flags of ethnic and cultural groups, I think this flag was a ssyrian design misstep.

Either the Grateful Dead have a war Ensign or the Nideröst Spanish Regiment discovered LSD well before Herr Leary.

We were fort-unate to receive this pic of some battlements in Beautiful Puerto Rico, where correspondent-at-large Leila1979 was on a ‘work trip’.

Though the chunky chevrons/serrations on the topmost flag made us immediately think ‘Chuquisaca!’, the flag is more likely a beef(y) Burgundy Cross (it’s the direction of the chevrons what told us).

Having become the preeminent taste-makers and design mavens among the Vex Set, we Hagz thought we’d expand our brand. As a public service, we’ve begun a blog about the DO’s and DONT’s of Heraldic Design.

Does one pair ermine and vair? We’ve got your answer.

Never second-guess your tincture again.

Crimea.

Come on.

What are you, a bloated pan-Slavic flag? Oh, you are? Oh.

Oh.

Well that’s disappointing.

Ukraine never stood a chance of keeping Crimea! Even the Crimean flag reflects the colors of the Russian flag.

DISAPPOINTING, I SAY.

I know, I know, I know. With all the news coming out of Venice, it’s hard to think about anything else. Missing plane? Where’s that? The battle over Crimea? Is that some kind of GTA thing? Venezuela? Beats me. What’s captivating the world (the world!) is the scandalous thought of The MOST Serene Republic seceding from Italy. GASP.

Why? Because, taxes! GASP.

But let’s move on to what matters: the Venetian flag.

Let’s start from the beginning.
