    Can UK folks get a Union Jack Please ??

    Hi I notice looking at the ratings tables for expeditions that while lots of players have their nations flag that instead of a Union Jack or English flag I have the EU flag. England isnt in the EU any more so the correct flag would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I asked similar question a couple of years ago, and had my posting rights taken away for quite some time.
    In the inter server events, we did actually have the Union Flag (not Union Jack, that's for ships) but BB have a habit of displaying it upside down, which is a distress signal.
    They don't seem to think that matters, so why not put the Belgian flag on the .de servers? After all, it's the same flag, just rotated. :P

    Or we can just sit it out until the inevitable collapse of that institution, then that "clean beaches" rag will be gone anyway.

    The difference between Union Jack and Union flag is daft, it merely depends if the flag is being flown on land or at sea. And that differential was relaxed in the early 1800's in any case.

    Btw, as upside down flag as per what BB give us is a sign of distress, and can be seen as an offensive gesture when not in distress.

    Tell that to the Jocks tomorrow when the event starts and they find out they still can't buy their flowerbed flag after waiting 10 years to qualify for one.

    there is no UK football team in Euro's or in Fifa Worldcup - hence no flag. Not a legit basis on requesting the flag in light of the history of this event. Keep asking fot the scotland flag, then have the scotland, NI and England flags on your island instead 0

    We have the Jolly Roger Flag, I would love to see them win the Euros , which FA do they represent?

    As a point of interest look at this thread started back in 2016 by BB which invited us to ask for flags even if not represented by an FA and the very first response was asking for Scotland.

    You will see the last post on there dated 17 May 2018 :-
    "While we don't plan on adding any countries that aren't participating in this year's tournament, we are looking to add the Union Jack flag; pending whether we can free up the resources needed that are currently invested on more important things."

    So we got the Jolly Roger
