Sorry, a bit offtopic, but a short "history" on this flag:



The flag for Vinnland, or more precisely "the people's technocratic republic of Vinnland" appears on the back of the tree latest albums of the Goth-Rockgroup Type O Negative as well on numerous t-shirts. The flag is supposed to symbolize the republic of Vinnland situated in north America. Vinnland and it's flag are the brain child of the hulking blackhaired frontman of the band Type O Negative: Peter Steele. Steele incorporated his idea's of paganism, left/right wing political flirtations and his own heritage (his mother was part Icelandic) into a concept of a repubic named after the first name the Vikings gave to north America: Vinland. The Vikings landed in New Foundland around 1000 a.d. and built a colony there.Steele takes this idea and tries to imagine what America would be like if the Vikings had actualy stayed, and built a civilisation there. Based on that he designed a new flag in a scandinavian cross patern and gives it his favorite colours: green, black and white (which coincedently remind me of the german war cross). The concept of the people's technocratic republic only apears once in the songtitle "The glorious liberation of the people's tecnocratic republic of Vinnland by the combined forces of the united territories of Europa". In one of his interviews Steele says that he thinks the world would be better off if it were governed by scientists, hence technocratic.

But it was reported in the press that they intend to issue passports (for money).

Hi, I asked a while back that the Canadian Red Ensign be added. I am sure there's a few Canadians on here that would like to have it on there, like me

Have you noticed Thorburn's response to your earlier request?

Here it is again:

I'm very reluctant to extend this code to countries from which disproportionately less regulars originate. In other words, to add the Red Ensign, we would need a unique name. Similar to "United States" vs. "Confederate States." We could add it as "Canada (Red Ensign)," but as this is not a location but a location with the reference to the flag name, it would be a bit unsystematic. So if you really want to have it added, you would have to provide a good unique location name (different from "Canada").


In response to his response, I had said the following:
Quote:

I'll leave it to the Canadians here to verify or gainsay my suggestion.

No Canadians responded.
