THE Country Celebration Thread

Well a good friend of mine (Orange Wombat) gave me this idea (he would've posted this, but he had to leave). This will be moved to non-tennis, but it belongs in GM so that more people will see it. Today is national Indonesia day, and as a sign of respect me and Orange Wombat have switched our flags to Indonesia. When people think of the world, they rarely think of Indonesia and as a result Indonesia doesn't get the respect it deserves. So just take this day to show a sign of respect and switch your flag to Indonesia.

No, this is not a 'trolling attempt', but rather showing respect. Have fun all

Re: Indonesia Day

I wish countries were more bold with their flags. This one, as well as many others are boring. Having a naked girl drinking beer as your flag would instantly triple the number of immigrants to that country, regardless of its economic state

This isn't about the flag, but rather the country itself. Show some respect maan.

Respect is earned, not freely given. Did Indonesia send me money to my bank account? Did they promise to provide an all expense paid trip to Indonesia, hookers included? Did they invent some new, very potent and cheap liquor?

No, they did none of those things. So for now something as huge as changing my flag, is not in my plans

Re: Indonesia Day

I do have to ask. Why Indonesia? Or rather, why just Indonesia? There's plenty of countries around the world. Is it because of sambal or nasi timbel? And isn't Indonesia Day on August 17th?

It's on August 17th yes, but I didn't want to wait a whole year for this. So why not today?

As he just pointed out, you could have at least made a much more logical thread in regards to the day.. Wikipedia helps.

Re: Indonesia Day

Well, the war for independence in Indonesia did start today, but if we are to celebrate Indonesia day today, than we must celebrate Angola Day/Poland Day tomorrow. It would be only fair...

And we didn't celebrate Cambodia Day yesterday... for shame...

Exactly! Sure thing, Angola tomorrow.

We can make that one off when there's a day where there are no countries to celebrate

Let's make this the country celebration thread! You in maan?

Why not? This is an international forum, and such a thread doesn't exist. It would also be nice to wish people Happy National Day while their country is celebrating.

Re: Indonesia Day

Here is more about what is commemorated in Indonesia on November 10:

Quote:
10 November: At dawn, following Mallaby's death the previous month, British troops begin a punitive sweep through Surabaya under the cover of naval and air bombardment, but meet fanatical resistance. The city is conquered in three days, but fighting continues for three weeks. At least 6,000 Indonesians die and thousands flee. 10 November is now commemorated in Indonesia as Heroes’ Day.
