Hmmmm....I could see going through a few different flags. Where my parents/brothers grew up (Ohio), where my family originated from (Ireland or Germany), but I think I would have to pick the Colorado flag if possible. It's where I was born and raised, where I still reside today. It's grown a lot over the last few years, but I still love being near the mountains and near my immediate family. It's where I hold memories of all my nieces and nephews being born and where I lost my mom about a little over a month ago. It's seen every high and low I've had in life and while I could live somewhere else Colorado will always be my "home."

Aw, I read the title and thought it would be a pride flag. Ah well.
While I hail from America, I have a burning hatred for this country and want to leave it behind and never look back. I'm not sure where else I'd go just yet, but I probably won't be on here anymore once I do, so instead...
I'll take the Australian flag, since that's the location of my best friend, and the one who got me into The Sims!

Australian flag awarded to Lazurite! :D

Hm, a Pride flag is a good idea! We do have the pirate flag as an alternative, even though we aren't pirates. I'm sure many members would like a Pride flag alternative. We have many LGBT+ members and many of us have LGBT+ sims, so I'll look up the possibility to add a Pride flag! :D

But we have also a Pride Event yearly coming up, so there's that too! Last year's had a rainbow Medal, and we'll see what this year's will be. :D

Ohio flag awarded!

We decided that since we have Pride related medals for the yearly Pride Event another one for the Wave your Flag wasn't needed. And it's more fun for Pride supporters to earn it in an event. :) You missed this year's Pride Event, but you can use a Pride flag in your siggy if you want, and it could be a bit bigger than the medal. :mrgreen:

I'll take an Indiana flag!

Definitely have a difficult relationship with my state. Born and raised here but always had big dreams of elsewhere. The last few years have me wistful though. Actually owning a home (spent my childhood constantly on the move) has given me a feeling of real roots.

No view is better than the one from my front porch. Which I guess makes me a true hoosier.

Ooh, flags! I would like to get the UK flag. I’ve lived here all my life and I love all the stereotypes from the accents to the queuing and the tea drinking. XD I think there’s a weird kind of beauty about it even though it’s such a small country, the countryside is especially beautiful. A lot of my US friends say they want to go to London because of the royal family, haha!

Re: Wave Your Flag

Postby Hugotarian » January 29th, 2020, 4:13 pm

I am choosing the United States.

I had some conflicting feelings about this, as I've never particularly loved living in the US. I've always said that I feel more connected to France, as I have French ancestry, tend to be more reserved than my southern family, and, well, I'm a European historian. I also considered England, because I studied there during a year of my undergrad and considered doing a PhD there.

However, I have chosen the US not because it has always felt like home, but because I have worked very hard to make it home.

In a way, the US and I are still getting to know each other. I have experienced so little of it. I've lived in Ohio and Utah (where I am currently now), and we will be moving again in May for my PhD program. I love how easy it is to make friends everywhere I've lived. I love the potential of social mobility. And I love that I can participate in and learn so many cultures, religions, and philosophies every time I move to a new city. I also love that there is so much I can do to improve the communities around me.

Mostly, I love that the US has taught me that I am truly in control of whether I make the most of the place I call home.

I would like the jolly roger flag, please.

I was born in Uruguay where I lived until I was eighteen. At that age I moved to Argentina to study at one of its universities and I never wanted to leave again.
I love my two countries to choose only one.

Massachusetts flag. It is a wonderful state with widespread public transit, beautiful scenery in autumn, and cranberry bogs. My dad's family has been here ever since they came from Ireland in the long ago and there's no reason to change it. Also our governor writes my paychecks.
