    Flags on the cruise?

    by ANTIKRISS » Sun Aug 03, 2014 7:02 pm

    I just watched a show live in Wacken, and saw tons of flags of countries. Do people bring their flags on the cruise?

    I usually carry a Mexican flag with me. Colombians do it too, from what I've seen.

    Agreed. I've never seen a United States flag at any festival.

    And I would feel weird as hell with one anyway. It's the same thing when I always see: "Cheers from Norway!" on comments on YouTube videos. No one ever says: "Greetings from the USA!". I think it's an American thing to feel guilty about being American. Meh.

    I would never bring an american flag. The U.S. is pretty much hated by everyone and all the U.S. metalheads know it so why make matters worse? Of course I can't speak for all the Americans. Just my two cents.

    I feel like we're kinda everywhere and in everyone's faces as it is, so it seems a bit much to bring a flag along. I figure people from less represented nations bring their flags to show they're in attendance, but you can pretty much just assume there will be Americans.

    Now maybe state flags... nah, even Americans don't know every state flag. I sure don't.

    Hahaha, I've seen this. Not at metal festivals, but just going anywhere that you see lots of Latinos, you will a lot of Latin countries' flags.

    Good to see a Catalan here! I've already had the chance to party with some Catalans this summer. So much fun.

    Heh, and being in Barcelona right now, I can just look outside my window and count at least 10 Catalan flags right away, not even trying.

    Never experienced US hate in my travels. People were extremely friendly when they found out I was from the US. Hell, at Wacken they loved that I traveled out to Germany for the festival. Got me a bunch of free beers. :D

    I think USA Metal people are not used to seeing Flags at music events,but at a country music show in the USA it is all about flag waving and patriotic stuff.Since most metalheads in the US hate or dislike country music very much ,we see the flags as something that reminds us of that, so no flags.Wearing a sports jersey from your home town or favorite team is our version of waving the flag.

    I think we had a stolen Soviet union flag taped to our cabin ceiling on one of the cruises.
    I don't have any irish flags.I had one that was signed by a bunch of bands but gave it to a German friend as a gift.

    Since I'm about to become a 'Murrican, I might consider bringing a USA flag to the cruise and start chants of "USA! USA! USA!" at the slightest provocation.

    Sadly I can't go, I was gonna go to ResuFest too but didn't due to too many coworkers also taking that weekend before me. I'm supposed to be here for work, but I did take off the one lousy week of vacation I had given to me this year... to go to Summer Breeze! And I did BCN Rock Fest and Be Prog! My Friend, both excellent. You must have gone to BCN Rock Fest, right?

    On the last cruise, there was a girl with a Colorado state flag.
    I've never seen a USA flag on any of the cruises.
    I never saw a German flag either.
    A couple of Aussie flags.

    Personally, I like to see other flags. But I think the best thing ever, would be to have all
    the different flags hanging together, side by side, blowing in the sea breeze on the pool deck
    or something.

    Image

    That would be crazy.
    State flags, country flags. Yes please!

    On a final note, there are some weird flags out there.

    Isle of Man and Sicily have that 3 legged one.

    Is there a 70k flag?

    I've never taken a flag to a festival. Doubt I ever will.

    Sound seemd quite decent for that concert.A few questionable guitar parts but overall quite solid despise the crap setlist.
    I really hope they change their setlists in Future concerts.It's quite sad they only play vicorious march and Pursuit of vikings from the older Material.Yes Fate of norns is considered old material now.............)

    I remember this flag, I signed it on the first cruise! During the forumite's breakfast - when 50 people said they'll attend and then there were only like five of us or something :)

    We could set a time for it, so people can bring their flags up to the pool deck and display them.... It'd make for a great 70K photo op, and really underscore how diverse the attendance is. Probably best to stage it on embark day, before the shows start running but after muster drill, if time allows.

    Summer Breeze had an American flag there. He walked by me, and I heard somebody say " America go home." But other than that, the Germans I met were mostly curious and also wondering why I came from so far.

    I don't think it would be terrible to bring a US flag. We are represented by a lot of good bands. Just put it up when a US band comes on.

    A bit strange since the 'Murricans like to put their flag on everything except their toilet paper.
    It seems that most of the flags onbroad are America minus USA.


    It's not that we like putting our flag on everything, that's usually done during big events like country concerts (as someone mentioned), etc. And as some others here have mentioned, it feels kind of awkward waving the US flag everywhere because to many of us, doing so kind of resembles a stereotypical overly patriotic 'Murrican who thinks "'Murrica! Fuck yeah! WE'RE NUMBER 1!"

    Image

    In the States, we tend to be a little more patriotic about our actual state. And as some people have aslo mentioned in this thread, you're probably more likely to see USA state flags rather than simple USA flags.

    I personally wouldn't show off my state flag, however. It already seems like most of the country hates us :oops:

    Hint: the Garbage State (yes, that's a pun)

    Yeah, to reiterate what others have said, the type of Americans that display the American flag on everything tend to be the types of Americans that you don't want to associate with (not that you would, most of that type typically do not leave the country. Or even the state. I've known people that bragged about never being any farther than 20 miles from the hospital they were born in if you can believe that).

    I've only been to Sweden and Canada, so I wouldn't know if there's hate for Americans in general who aren't acting like assholes at the time. I did have a Pakistani guy introduce me in a Swedish bar by saying "I have everything about America except Hollywood". I told him "Yeah, those Harry Potter movies were awesome". (I had enough shots of Jameson at that point to no longer remember how many I had, so I was pretty drunk). The dude looked at me funny, then laughed.

    Also in the same bar this guy kept grabbing me and speaking to me in a slurred babble that I couldn't understand. I assumed he was speaking Swedish, so I started stumbling over my limited Swedish telling him I didn't understand him. Turns out the dude was Irish and speaking English, he was just shitfaced. About 15 minutes later, the Ordningsvakter yoked him up by his collar and tossed him out. It was pretty funny.
