America, the Netherlands - This town name, often used as a plot device in dubbed cartoon series where a person thinks he or she will go on vacation to the USA...instead, he or she is going to America in "lembuuuuuhrgggggg" (Limburg)

Portugaal, the Netherlands - Another town name named after a country. Except they just add an extra a in the hope that it disguises the fact that the ones who named this town had no imagination at all and had to resort to stealing country names...ha...no.

Waspik, the Netherlands - ...Was...pik... (Wax dick when translated literally), although in reality, Waspik comes from the word Waes (marshy land) and pik (Which means protruding piece of land...or, more often, it means dick)

This town is made even more pathetic because a train rails called, de Halve Zolenlijn (Retard line. Yes you read that correctly.) runs straight through Wax dick.

Although, the line thanks its name from the textile industry that was present in North Brabant (Halve zool can also just plainly mean Half Sole, although it is also often used as an insult towards anyone being stupid.)

Drogeham, the Netherlands - Dry ham? ...well, now just need to find wetham somewhere.

North Brabant, the Netherlands - It's funny because it's located in the south of the Netherlands. Do you wanna know where South Brabant is? In the North of Belgium!

Remionds me of the urban legend about the real city of Usa, Japan. depending on the version of the storyeither a clever Japanese business owner in the town of Usa started labeling his products "made in usa" or the The Japanese renamed a town Usa to get around requirements that products be labeled "made in Japan" and after Japanese products got a bad rep for shoddyness during the 50s. The town of Usa has been around at least 1000 years...

I think so...
Kalaspia-Shimarata's flag represents the Union between K&S. The dark blue represents the sea and the light blue represents the sky. In Kalashi language considers light blue and dark blue to be different colours. England colonised, and unified K&S, between 1774 and 1953, and English, light blue and dark blue are considered to be the same colour. Therefore, the contrast between dark blue and light blue represents the union, but the differences between K&S where as blue being two but simultaneously one colour represents K&S being two, but simultaniously one entity. The opposite to the symmetry represents the unity and indipendance of K&S, whilst also representing the Kalashi culture of opposite symmetry.KS is 75% Christian, hence the cross.

Nice name, that. Who wouldn't want to live in a town called "Bright"? Some people think that one or more of the American towns called Hell may have got their name from Germans coming over and saying "Ach, so schoene hell...", meaning "Oh, how beautifully bright...". [/geek]
