Mr Deniz,
have a look , what is after ? your teacher !

Jean Christou, Cyprus Mail, 19 June 2006:

İsmet Guney, the Turkish Cypriot artist and teacher who designed the Cyprus flag is seeking payment from the government, 46 years after Archbishop Makarios chose his design to represent the new Republic of Cyprus.According to reports in the Turkish Cypriot press yesterday Guney claims that Makarios promised him £20 a year for designing the flag but he was never paid.







Yes Halil, just think how much more money Ismet Guney could make from royalties, if you used the same flag in the "TRNC". You would be helping a fellow Turkish Cypriot, No.??

What do you think.??


Only if index linked :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I wonder if anyone would dare hoist the RoC flag in the Morth? At the moment they will only see it as an eyesore (lost for words here) :wink:


I like the index comment Deniz. :lol: :lol:

No, I don't think anyone will have the balls to do it Deniz, despite 70,000+ TC's hold a RoC Citizenship's through having a RoC passports. Talk about being ungrateful to the flag that gave them Citizenship's.

Hello everyone. I've been following the discussion, and I thought I would take a break from other stuff and submit a proposed flag. It was tough to avoid red (for Turkey) and dark blue (for Greece) and still have something meaningful, but a lot of foreigners see Cyprus as a sunny beach destination, and the light blue represents the color of the Mediterranean. Yes, the current flag is quite nice, but some of the hardened TCs might have a problem with it. Cheers, Mills

You are wasting your time because Cyprus will never be united, not in this millennium anyway.

Also, there are a hell of a lot of GCs in the South who prefer the Greek flag to the "Cypriot flag" and you should know that.

Humanist, thanks for the encouragement. This was sort of a one-time try for me (a procrastination effort from other stuff). Hope all is well with you.

One sided opinion....:roll: What about the "TRNC" flag ... is so similar with the Turkish flag...and how many of the TC prefer the Turkish flag or have it it next to the "TRNC" one?

That's exactly my argument Lena and why I said it's a waste of time.

People are not going to give up a flag they grew up with and respect and trying to force them into something they don't want will only cause trouble.

The "one sided opinion" was in response to Mills' "but some of the hardened TCs might have a problem with it." statement. What I meant by what I said was that there are GCs in the South who would get rid of the "Cypriot flag" and hoist the Greek flag with pride because they believe "Cyprus is Greek".
