You remember the issue of the flags?
What did you all do with your suddenly worthless flags?
I remember that Playrix closed any discussion about the issue after a short time on the official forum.

To answer my own question: I had two flags (I habe dual nationality).
These are sitting in the decoration box, most prob for ever.

Mine are in storage, but at Halloween I use one in purple colour. By positioning it a certain way it looks like a little flag waving on top of one of my Halloween castles, lol Very Happy

I sold my flags, but have a big flowerbed to mimic my country's flag (easy, just red and white)

One is in storage and the other is flying the Jolly Pumpkin in the Halloween area of the Zoo. (Still angry over this matter.)

I remember that Very Well!! After politely asking Support several times due to the fact they have never been too speedy at replying at all. I Was finally told by them that it was part of a much larger update and I needed to remember That!! How in the world was I supposed to have known that?? I immediately asked SoCalled Support & Never have received an answer for that. I got so mad I started selling EVERYTHING!!! Flags 1st of course. That's when I saw how little you got back for everything you worked so hard for! That's when I started selling it all one by one. The madder I became The more devious my mind worked. I was Really Planning on Leaving A Message For Them That Wasn't Nice At All Spelled out with their own decorations and then I truly stumbled on the forum! I had no idea there was one & I Read & Read &  Read that thing!🤓🤓😎  To Be Honest as always if it hadn't been for all you great people that was there then & still are (Yay!) I Would Not be a Township-er or anything Playrix is/was involved in & went on my merry way!  I have No Idea What Exactly Made Me Stay but, it's probably a little bit of everyone that had posted something. So I went back & I had to totally rebuild everything that I had been able to sell back from houses to trees & everything between! I never have gotten back some of the decorations I had acquired & I have a bit of hope left that I eventually will. Except of course for a flag. I am proud of being an American & I Loved Getting To See Where All The Different People I Came Across & Played The Game With Lived All Over The World!! So, as Forrest Gump Would say: "That's All I've Got To Say About That."

I get why people were mad.  Personally, I never saw any town where the flags were used in a way I found offensive.  I did find some where they were used to excess, but hey, if somebody wants to buy a dozen or more Greek flags (or wherever) that’s up to them.

I hadn’t bought any yet, but my plan was to buy a bunch of different flags for my zoo to put near the animals from that part of the world.

My guess is the real reason didn’t have anything to do with how players used them but by the issue of adding flags for more countries making an unmanageable quantity.  Plus, there are touchy issues of international politics.  China would object to a flag for Taiwan.  Somebody might object to a flag for a Palestine, and I guess there are other disputed territories around.  An alternative solution would be to add a lot of flags for regions or states or smaller geopolitical areas to eliminate the notion that a flag equated to recognition of a country.  A lot of US players would love to have their state flag, but that still leaves the question of how many can the game handle.

To me, their decision to just get rid of the National flags altogether was pretty understandable.  The decision to substitute the bogus ones instead of refunding whatever was paid for them was really pretty bad, though.

@Elvengirl to have dual citizenship is pretty cool and a good reason to be proud of both your countries!

I’m glad I read this thread before buying a flag. I can understand there maybe some controversy over them, so ehh. I won’t be buying one. Maybe as I get more land developed I will try to create something to simulate a flag out of flowers.
