Since moving to America I’ve found that apparently very few Americans know all this. So I spent six hours designing a fancy photoset to explain it all. Naturally.
I hate to be that guy and make all this even more confusing and difficult to remember butttt…
The term British Isles is controversial in Ireland, where there are objections to its usage due to the association of the word British with Ireland.The Government of Ireland does not recognise or use the term and its embassy in London discourages its use.
I am not British and I am not from the “British Isles”. :/
These posts/photosets really annoy me.
This photoset has an awfully condescending tone considering the iffiness of a couple of the facts.
I’m sure the Northern Irish people would be very impressed with having “no flag” considering there have been protests and riots over the Union Jack recently.
