Black Flag[edit]

I'm curious as to why a black flag has been chosen to represent nationalism. In the English-speaking world, the black flag traditionally represents (among other things) anarchism, which is the opposite of nationalism, so I'd think it was singularly inappropriate as a symbol for nationalism.

Good point. It was added last month [1] by an IP with no other edits. I have removed it.[2] PrimeHunter (talk) 21:53, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

As black is a representative of anarchism, which is the opposite of nationalism, should the white flag be used instead? Humongous125 (talk) 12:22, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure whether you are serious but white flag has nothing to do with nationalism. PrimeHunter (talk) 12:41, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
