I think I have always quietly held a fascination with flags. I don't go out of my way to learn about them but if they are anywhere near my path I inevitably stop for a while and read everything I can. For instance the Chicago city flag recently caught my attention. I recommend checking out the article on it. It was recently voted the second best city flag in the nation. Only beaten out by a little known city of immeasurably superior quality. Anyway, it wasn't these flags that led me to write tonight it was this article over at cracked. There are some great flags here mocked with sharp tongue.
