Welcome to Europe! Stripey flags? Do you mean tricolors and the like? I'd have to disagree, I much prefer the simple Romanian tricolor with all its symbolism to the Union Flag. Now, if they'd just add their wonderful (and distinctly Christian) eagle coat of arms to the centre, that would be the perfect flag!
I still fail to see why Wales shouldn't be acknowledged in the Union Flag, by the way, and since when was Northern Ireland a kingdom?
