    This is the Somalian flag:

    Is the Confederate flag a symbol of treason?-800px-flag_of_somalia-svg-jpg

    You figure that was copied from the confederate flag?

    What you're actually thinking of is that west Florida used to have a flag that was also just one star that looks kind of like the Somalian flag. There is no actual connection though. It's just a coincidence. The star is an ultra standard symbol on flags. The blue in the Somalian flag actually is the UN's shade of blue. It's a tribute to the UN's service in Somalia. But if anybody is curious what happened to the star from the west Florida flag, it wound up on the left side of the Texas flag. Hence, the "lone star" state. Wikipedia ftw.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Yeah, you're right. That is the Somalian national flag.

    Here is the Bonnie Blue Flag.

    This nonsense that the founders viewed each state as its own individual entity is just that: Nonsense. The colonies entered the revolutionary war as one entity and came out as a single entity for the sole reason that that is how they were viewed by the Empire. The colonies had nothing that set them apart as "mini-countries". There were no real cultural or social differences. At most one could claim that the governance at local levels was what set them apart and even that is quite the stretch.

    Educate... him... on what? Your ridiculous assessment that the Somali flag is a version of some obscure flag most Somalis dead or alive have probably NEVER heard of?

    Now that is revisionist history. If this were true then there would be no state governments. Just a federal government.

    Yep, like I said. That's what the Blue Bonnie is- the flag for west florida back in the day. It became an element of Texas's flag. Like I said.
