What you must accept is what it has grown to represent; much like some of us in the south US must realize that the 'rebel' flag now represents (to most people) regressive, rascist thinking...
Calm yourself troll...
and my point is that in the sub continent your perception of the swastika is invalid. As for the confederate flag representing rascist thinking, this is again a false perception. I guess you also think the Union jack represents slavery.

I've always found flags to be a disappointment. They very rarely live upto there expectation. Narrow minded people wave flags and even narrower ones follow them.

Okay.
It is not only MY perception that (some see) the Stars & Bars as being a racist symbol (I don't neccesarily agree). The NAACP conducted a boycott of South Carolina based on this premise...I have no particular feeling on the Union Jack. It isn't my symbol, but I respect it as a symbol of my allies and of some brave soldiers who fought alongside me in Iraq.
Again, I never said I thought the Rebel Flag represented racist thinking/ideaology, so how would that lead you to think I would hold such views on the Union Jack?

A flag can be miss used, thats not the fault of the flag. The far right use the Union Jack in the UK. Does that make it a racist flag, Of course it doesn't!
Just because the Southern economy relied on Cotton during the Civil war every black and PC fruit cake labels it a racist flag. Absolute rubbish. The Union were just as racist as the confederacy, only their economy relied on engineering etc where slavery was not needed. It didn't stop prominant people from having slaves though did it .. Even Lincoln had slaves

Are you going to actually contribute an intelligent thought or opinion. Or are you going to continue with this learning difficiency syndrome that you display at each and every opportunity
