Re: Indonesia Day

I think a daily country thing would be a bit too much. Let's go for a monthly thing. So I'm using each country's independence days, and using a randomizer to do the schedule.

2013 Flag Season
January- Sudan
February- Saint Lucia
March- Bosnia and Herzegovina
April- Syria
May- Israel
June- Democratic Republic of the Congo
July- São Tomé and Príncipe
August- Burkina Faso
September- Saint Kitts and Nevis
October- Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
November- Yemen
December- Iceland

I hope more people join up, and enjoy this idea

I can speak Indonesian Nama saya Dmitry Verdasco I personally don't like the country, but I kinda respect they way they take no bullshit and aren't so politically correct Keeping our drug smugglers in jail for decades or on death row - where we would just send them back no questions asked - and letting refugee boats leave their shores to come to Australia and not giving a shit, then not letting us take them back. They're badasses. I wish Australia had a big more swagger when it came to international relations.

I liked Angelique Widjaja, too.

Re: Indonesia Day

November 11:

Angola's National Day: (1975)
After many years of conflict that lead to the weakening of all the insurgent parties, Angola gained its independence on November 11th 1975, after the 1974 coup d'état in Lisbon, Portugal, which overthrew the Portuguese regime headed by Marcelo Caetano.

Poland's Second National Day: (1918)
One of the two National Days Poland has, the Independence Day represents the day when Poland regained its independence as the Second Polish Republic in 1918. The other National Day of the year is celebrated on May 3rd.


And Freaky should rename this thread to The Country Celebration Thread like he said.
