New British Flag!!All hail the Dai-Gurren Brigade!!!


According to Animenewsnetwork.com,”A design inspired by the Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann anime series has won an informal poll by the website of The Daily Telegraph newspaper for a redesign of the British flag. Ian Lucas, the Labour Party’s member of the British Parliament from Wrexham, Wales, suggested in a November 27 legislative debate that the Union Jack flag be redesigned to include an element of the Welsh flag — specifically the Welsh dragon. (The Union Jack currently has elements from the English, Irish, and Scottish flags.) The Daily Telegraph’s website began soliciting design suggestions from its readers, and held a informal online poll on twenty candidates it selected. Even after adjusting for “questionable voting patterns” in the last few days, a design (pictured right) with the skull icon from Gainax’s Gurren-Lagann series won the poll with 55% percent of the votes.”

According to the skull flag’s designer “Anonymous of Norway,” “[The design] represents shouting “UNION!” and joining together; kicking reason to the curb and doing the impossible; fighting the power, and piercing the heavens.” (The wording of the quote, particularly “piercing the heavens,” includes references to phrases in Gurren-Lagann.) The design is one of many submitted to the newspaper site after its call for reader design submissions was relayed to the Japanese 2channel and the international 4chan online bulletin board systems.

Amazing.Simply amazing.Though I am a big fan of Gurren Langann its still amusing that people would choose something like that.I dont see the majority of the voters knowing that it was from an anime.And if they did well it might have been a different story.It just shows you how universal Gurren Langann is and how it appeals to the normal folk(if they ever watch it…).Or they just might like the glasses and flames(I know I did).

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of
    websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to
    another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
