What Sucks…The Canadian Flag


Much has been said about Canada and all but, a leaf? Come on!

Jeez, I mean really- this is what you carry into battle? How intimidating...a LEAF! Whoa, I'm so scared! What was going on here- "Hey, our police wear these silly red Mountie uniforms, why not just put a leaf on our flag? Cool? Okay, let's go listen to Rush."

Hard to believe 1/2 the country is dominated by the French.

What was the runner up choice?

You know what else sucks? Countries with national anthems based around [i]war[/i]. Who cares if our flag isn't intimidating, having a national identity based around terror isn't an ideal I would exactly look up to. And in any case, our flag seems to do a pretty good job of keeping us from getting shot/abducted in situations where we would otherwise be mistaken as Americans.

Hey Canadian:
Strange Brew was funny.

Sure Canadian but I wouldn't get too confident- once the bad guys discover Nickeback all bets are off.

Maybe you can get down off your high-horse for a few minutes to explain to us and the rest of the civilized world where you people get off calling it canadian bacon when it is so obviously ham.

At least they could have put a BC bud on there, eh?

Nickleback is our one true WMD. And "Canadian Bacon" is refered to as back-bacon here, because, y'know? It comes from the back of the pig.

The Hang in There cat on a flag really bugged John, I guess.

I agree, the flag really sucks. The anthem is terrible too. Canada should revert back to it's real flag, the Red Ensign. You can blame the Liberal Party for all this as they attempted and still do, to wipe out everything of tradition and history in Canada. They're treasonous in fact. Let's hope they remain out of office, they've done enough damage over the years.

You know what the flag could use, a nice hammer and sickle combo :),

the flag was developed from our military patch used in WW1 and WW2. Canada had some of the best military victories of both wars, and in ww1 it was the Canadian corps the Germans were afraid of and called "stormtroopers". so yeah, id march into war under that flag as well as any American would under the stars and stripes. oh and id like to see your free hand of our flag. the leaf is hard to get right. but stars and stripes? could do it in my sleep. and I have never heard the term "Canadian Bacon" used here before, its called back bacon, or peameal bacon. its actually a British "invention" so to speak and American company's market it with the name Canadian bacon cause it is a popular cut here. not our fault your companys like our name.
