Non-Nation flag? (i. e. Watopia)

(I ) #1

There are many reason why there should be a flag that isn’t specifically associated to any existing nation state. May it be that on has double nationality, can’t decide if one want to cycle for the country you are living in, or the you are born or the country whose team you want to support. One might not even want to cycle under any nation at all.
Going for country flag means deciding against other countries.

What about an inclusive flag, dedicated to an universal spirit.

My proposal would be to invent a flag which is not associated to any existing country.
What about a Watopia flag (with a wheel in the center) or -as a more realistic version- an UN flag?

Seems legit.

I’d settle for an EU flag.

But even better would be a United Federation of Planets one. :smiley:

Another good idea.
I am happy to hear that there at more people it there who don’t feel the necessity to cycle under a nations flag against other nations.
This option should be for them.
It is all a matter of programming a few pixels and adding an extra choice on the menu.

Just note - I’ve never realized I’m riding my Zwift under “my flag” (Czech) against other nations …
Frankly, this attitude seems quite bizarre to me :slight_smile: It’s nice to see all those flags and be able to identify from which countries my current companions come … just nice, little tool to make my experience more “personal”…

Anyway … if there is EU flag, please let me ask for Confederate one, too (definitely I’d prefer this one) :sunglasses:

I suspect that’s a bit too controversial to be included.

That said, I did love The Dukes of Hazzard as a kid. The General Lee’s Dixie car horn and all.

I know … history might be confusing, sometimes … :sunglasses:

But I agree, your proposal of “United Federation of Planets” seems to be a better idea, definitely :wink:
