  1. Somaliland flag? you mean that meaningless Italian tricolor with scary-looking arabic writing on? Everytime you show it anywhere it brings sub-conscious associations of al-Qaeda and Taliban to everyone who looks at it. In other words it has negative connotations and it does not help our cause. It is a minus.
    The flag must change. 55 Muslim countries and only one other (Somaliland-hating Saudi) has tawheed on their flag. 55. why us? Yaa inagu haysta diintan aynnu afka lakala waaxeynno ee aynnu na arkaay na maqlaayda haynno.
    This flag must change if we re to stand a chance of recognition.
    Oh sorry sisters Nurses and midwives many congratulations. well done to you all and to our heroine Queen Edna.
