I'm French, but not from France as the flag would suggest.

I was born and still live in Canada.

nasdaq,

I speak Dutch but the Belgian flag is also missing.
(It would be better that only the name of the language is mentioned without flags)
The south part of Belgium speaks French, while the north part speaks Dutch (Flemish).
In Belgium we have alot of quarrels between french and dutch speaking people.

Belgium is one the smallest countries in Europe and has FOUR governments (ridiculous) :
1. One government for the Dutch part
2. One government for the French part
3. One government for Brussels, the capital town of Belgium.
4. One government for Belgium (Federal Government)

You can imagine how fast decisions are made here in Belgium.

My solution for Belgium :
1. Add the French part of Belgium to France
2. Add the Dutch part of Belgium to the Netherlands
That would be the end of Belgium and MANY problems.

I wouldn't be surprised that Canada has also problems with the French speaking people, but that's just a wild guess because I really don't know.

P.S.: the world counts more than 250 countries, so alot of flags are still missing LOL.

I can't speak for nasdaq, but what is that supposed to mean ?

You should be proud to live in a bilingual country... I, like nasdaq, also am french canadian... and I can tell ya, imo, Canada has more problems with the english speaking people than the french! :p ... but that's just my take on it...

Well, I thought of putting more flags for each language. Like France and Canada for French - but there are also African and Caribbean countries that speak French.

Anyway, the flags are just because they look pretty and I wanted to see how they would look in a Poll.

cnm,
I love the flags too and it's very decorative for the poll, but ...
The secret of a long marriage is based on two words "Yes dear".
Yes cnm, you may keep the flags.

Galadriel,
You don't need to be offended.
I didn't say that Canada has a problem. I said I wouldn't be surprised that Canada has the same problem. That's a big difference.
If Canada has no problems that's ok with me.

I don't understand why I should be "proud" to live in a bilingual country, but I'm not going to argue about that. It's not important for this thread.

I'm french canadian by birth, but I am French from france, and I was too lazy to bother with the accents :p :p

There are SOME problems. I was there once, and some quebecois put me down for living in ontario, yet their origin was english ( the stronger the accent, the more english they are )

Seems as though everyone forgot the one universal language....love. Requires no flags and is redeemable in every country, regardless of race, creed or colour.
