Anglos, what would you put in a flag to rally to that represents the Anglosphere?
Bonus points for posting examples.
If not the Royal Navy Ensign
History will look back on the last 400 years as part of the Anglo-American period
The abglosphere has ruled the world ubdoubtedly since then and history will remember us as the same culture/civilization of multiple nations like the Greeks
Idk the identity of Greek as a single thing probably didn't come around until the Persian invasions/rise of Alexander. Of course hat only lasted a while until the Greek states broke a part again.
During roman times the identity of Greek was very real and people identified Greeks and greek states all the way through the Byzantine period (they called themselves be empire of the Greeks or the Greek empire)
I think the Greeks probably new they were a big ducking deal
A kangaroo with a rifle shooting an eagle shitting in to tea with a beaver with kurt angles face running on logs heading towards the tea.
I think this would work.
Sth like this maybe.
On a side note: lol et UK guy's teeth.
But for real, this one is 5/5 bredy gud
Most Normans didn't admix too much with the Brits. Some Normans stayed behind and kept French names, and intermarried with the locals after the last Norman kings, but it's not as heavy. Most of the French influence in England at the time was purely language, and bureaucratic.
My great grandmother on my mother's side's family was one of those. French last name'd Brits. Came to the New World from South East England.
>Most Normans didn't admix too much with the Brits
This. Britain's aristocracy is STILL mostly Norman, and they STILL own the vast majority of the country. Britain is home to three races, the "anglo-celtic", the "anglo-saxon" and the "anglo-norman".
>Don't forget about the Jutes, and the Vikings.
Both fully integrated into the anglo-saxon or "english" identity. Genetically, all Britons and Irish are for the most part pre-European, the races I speak of are mostly cultural (tho the genetic isolation of the anglo-normans is very real).
Actually there was some Norman-English admixture going on in Acadia before they were exiled by the Brits for refusing to swear allegiance to the crown. And for gun running. And blowing shit up.
Those people now make up most of the Cajuns in South Lousiana, as well as a few other disparate groups of people with French ancestry in the US.
Quebecois didn't. Another reason they're the the worst French.
>mfw I'm french, basically your greatest ennemy
Can we be just friends, for once ?
No Normans by then, they'd bred into the French population. When I say anglo-norman, I really do mean Normans, as in the followers of William of Normandy. Those same families that followed him over the channel STILL own the vast bulk of Britain, the English people have been slaves in their own lands for nearly 1,000 years.
Yorkshiremen don't think of themselves as vikings, they're Yorkshiremen first and English second. The Vikings made more of a splash than the Jutes did, but both have long since vanished as separate races in a way the anglo-celts and anglo-saxons haven't.
Frog is delicious. I don't think French eat frog, but I'm not 100% certain. I think it's because of a stereotype about French sounding like croaking frogs when they laugh.
Snail is just disgusting. That's like Southeast Asians eating those eggs with chicken embryos in them.
Yes, yes I am. The Normans integrated into the general French nobility pretty quickly, by the time the French were settling America, you'd be hard pressed to tell a "Norman" from a Picard or a Champagnois.
How can you be ok with frog legs but not escargots? What a weird fucker. The half born chicken egg/embryos are pretty hardcore but escargots are pretty much mainstream nowadays. Everyone eats them and finds them delicious.
Frogs are just amphibians, we eat fish and we eat lizards, why not frogs?
Snails are horrific slimebeasts, even touching one is enough to make most people shudder, let alone eating the cunts.
Garlic butter is delicious. Even plain old salt and pepper works fine if they are fresh. The most important thing with frogs legs is you don't overcook them. Anything else you add from there is just a bonus.
>riding on the coattails of the glorious British Empire
We don't want to be associated with you traitorous scum thank you very much.
Please do not include the bogans in with the anglosphere, gentlemen. They are an uncivilized, crass, and unpleasant bunch. They shant participate in our revelry with their awful attitude.
The Celtic knot is actually very similar to the Anglo-Saxon knot. The only difference is the thickness of the "ribbon", in one it varies between the straight and curved parts, in the other the ribbon is of constant thickness.
>implying this isn't the best version
thank me later
I think it ages well. the addition of a lion really gives it an edge, don't you think?
The lion is fucking stupid so I hope that was the joke. What I do like however, is the red appearance of the left quarter in the thumbnail. Makes me want the four blue corners want to be divided relative colours similar to pic related. If you want a lion it needs to be a typical formidable outline.
what's wrong with the lion m8? I'm British, I like them.
There are no good moose pictures but I think this is a beaver and possibly a bald eagle.
