I'm not against the idea of a flag at all, nor the design. My point is that the popularity of it is more an expression of a new pride in Shetland, rather than the cause of it. I'm glad to see this change in attitude, though flag-waving is, to me, one of the least interesting aspects of it.


I like the part when we get to wave flags, it looks pretty and mighty. I think at exactly 12 everything should stop and we all look up to the closest flag, hand on heart, tear in eye and sing 'The norseman's home'

As I said before we would fly the flag but they haven't been made available outside Lerwick. :(


What does "available outside Lerwick" mean?

The flags fine but to wave it about in honor of it'self seems a bit odd, as for patriotism, cant we just accept we're all really great and get on with it. If we need a special Shetland day how about a Shetland produce day, celebrating and promoting Shetland goods, which we can then stick little flags on.

Just having a day of the flag is kinda like buying a Tshirt with your own name on, it's a representative of who we are but it doesn't say much of what we're about.
