    How about the Dutchy of Grand Fenwick?  I'm sure there are some talented IM's there. They are certainly deserving of a flag in chess.com

    Why aren't there state flags for the US?

    That is true! Why doesn't chess.com include state flags for the US? And what about county flags? Why is chess.com including flags for some Spanish comunidades autónomas, but no flag for American states? What about Australian territories? What about South African provinces? I think chess.com have three options: to include no flag at all; to include any flag (nation, province, county, city, fiction) that every player prefers, and you possibly will have several thousands of flags; to include only the flags of the nations in the U.N. list. 

    The actual selection of flags is absurd, as chess.com is including only the flags that chess.com wants: not those of real nations, not those of every state of province of every nation, not any drawing every player wants.

    There is one other option: remove the flagpole from the uncomfortable region it seems to be lodged in.

    Well what we need here at this point are positive new ideas. Anyone that follows the financial news knows that Spain is in very very serious difficulty. So we go to the World Bank and borrow a few Billion Dollars and give the money to Spain to release Catalonia. We don't want Spain to go bankrupt and Catalonia wants to be free ( It's a win-win for everyone ). Wink

    the new Colorado Rapids second kit has a Colorado state flag hidden in it.  pretty great.

    i'm not particularly fond of the flag nor the team, but i do like flags.
