Georgia concedes defeat
Several months ago I told you about the new Georgia state flag, and that the NAVA (North American Vexillological Association) had voted it the worst flag on the continent. At the time, I said "Let's go for the world title!"

I hadn't counted on the ingenuity of Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, who created this monstrosity (Caution: Do not look directly at the monitor) as a new logo for the European Union. "We did not commission a design for a new flag and there is no intention of replacing the current one," said a spokesperson, perhaps the wisest thing the EU has ever said. Flying this thing in direct sunlight might be construed as an act of war.

(Here's the current EU flag.)
