    Well... My business was called Localz, and on the site I tried to sign upto many a moon ago that was taken, so localzuk was born. Now my business has ended, I have just lived on with that username.

    You're the first person to ever to have noticed that UK means UK. Everyone else says heh local and thinks the extra bit is ZUK. :P

    I'm suprised the usual do-gooders haven't been along yet and complained at how offended they are by some of these flags

    Who would be offended by a country/county flag?? Ok, I can see the people who may have a problem with the way the England flag is used as a tool to try and promote the BNP - but that doesn't mean the flag itself is a bad thing...

    Can only find this one on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/LESSER-SABBATS...sid=p1638.m122

    for us pagans - and the pic is rather suitable for me too.
    Don't know if you can do anything with it?

    And then there is this one for Dorset
    http://www.ngw.nl/int/gbr/d/dorset.htm

    I think we should put up whatever we feel like - where you are or where your heart is or whatever (hence the welsh flag for me)
