I can’t speak for the flag of any other nation, but socialists are concerned with silly shit like flags. Who cares? I don’t salute it or let it define me.

Sure, some — even me — have some feelings associated with the flag you’d consider horrible, barbaric, etc. But it’s mostly because older folks we love have love for the flag, and we respect those feelings.
Teenagers care about stupid shit like devils and angels boozing and farting. Adults don’t need flags of any kind.
