Remember the Russian flag incident? Well, yeah, apparently that wasn't the only occurence of the "purple instead of blue"mistake. There have been much, MUCH more occurrences of it. I can't post the comparisons, because the images I have saved on my computer are monster flags(FUCK YOU, GOOGLE IMAGES!! :evil: :evil: :evil: ) that can't be posted. Mods, if a flag has purple in it, I can guarantee that it's a messup. I'm sorry to bug you, but it's just a sticking point for me.

Wow, never noticed that.

For the most part, he is correct. The purple/blue in those flags should be replaced with a blue more along the lines of what you see in the Scotland flag. The flag of St. Lucia, however, should look like this:

It may also be worth noting that the Argentina flag is pretty blurry, and the sun icon within the flag can't easily be recognized. Even though the flag is small, I'me guessing that it would be possible to have one that size that looks a little better.

So why not find or make a suitable version of that elsewhere, and then upload it as a 'custom' flag?

Except for the fact that Google Images gives me monster images that take up half the screen.

Download this, and use the resize/resample tool to change the size of the flag down to the size needed for NS.

You could just copy the existing NS version, to paste into Paint & change the colour there, no?

I think the point is that so many flags are the wrong color. If the Jamaican flag were off-color, I'd raise a fuss.

I'll get to it; it's just not a very high priority problem, given it's only a minor cosmetic error, there's a workaround, and it hasn't seemed to bother too many people in the six years they've been like that. :)
