Flag Day here in the USA I will always be proud of our American Flag. It saddens my heart to see fellow citizens stomping on it.

It is a wonderful thing that can celebrate its own flag. Finnish flag day is next Saturday, when we celebrate Midsummer. This festive time is the shortest night in Finland. In Lapland the sun does not set at all, and even in the south is only a few hours dark. To celebrate, the flag is raised Midsummer's Eve, at six o'clock in the afternoon and shall be calculated until Midsummer's Day at nine o'clock in the evening. I wish you a good flag feast days.

I would like that in my country (Catalonia) the vast majority of people to love and respect our flag(and National anthem) as you do. It's moving.
I wish you a happy Flag Day !!

I must confess I find it slightly odd the extreme almost religious reverence that Americans have for their flag. Surely it's just a symbol and not to be made an idol of

@grouser: As an American, I think I love my flag because of the meaning it holds in connection with our history. I do not take for granted the lives that have been lost dying to protect my freedoms. The USA has a relatively short history compared to Great Britain - perhaps that is part of it.

Yes. I hate to see anyone denigrate any flag, whether it is my country or any country. Flags are symbols of pride and patronage and as such should be respected (although, I agree with the above commenter, not idolized). But bet. And now that I am ranting, I love the Union Jack, too, and our own Maple Leaf.

It is really sad when any countries flag is treated with disrespect. We all need to be proud of our flags.

Les étoiles les étoiles les étoiles
Dites-moi étoile, pourquoi je vous regarde?
Les étoiles les étoiles les étoiles
Dites-moi, étoile qui vous regardera?

Les étoiles les étoiles
Si seulement je savais
Dites moi étoile de qui obtenez-vous la lumière
Les étoiles les étoiles
Vous qui êtes belle dans les cieux
Dites-moi étoile, qui vous donnera l'amour?

The stars the stars shining up above
Tell me stars who will give you love
The stars the stars lights of white and blue
Tell me stars why I look to you

Les étoiles les étoiles les étoiles
Dites-moi étoile, pourquoi je vous regarde?
