Eric, I do know that.


If you do know that then why the reference to TCs only?

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.


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".


There are TC that do not even have a "TRNC" flag...they use only the Turkish one.

Eric, this thread was opened from people they want to see a united Cyprus. They have dream to see one flag that will represent all the island.

If thats not your dream then step back from this one. Ok I do not have a dream that one of this flag will be the future flag but why you want to stop them?

I knew that the one sided reply was for Mills, but since you do not like to talk about your "side" in that way do not do it for the GC as well. I can see from your post that for you there is no two side thing...for you there is only the Turkish side. Am I wrong?

There's a difference between telling someone he is wasting time and telling him to stop. I told him he is wasting his time because like yourself I do not have a dream that one flag will represent us all.

I knew that the one sided reply was for Mills, but since you do not like to talk about your "side" in that way do not do it for the GC as well.[/quoite]

I always talk about my side Lena, that's why people don't like it. :wink:



I can see from your post that for you there is no two side thing...for you there is only the Turkish side. Am I wrong?


Yes, you are wrong. I always say there are two sides, GCs in the South and TCs in the North. It was Mills who referenced to one side only knowing
full well that many on the other side also do not want a shared flag.

Tell me something Lena, why did you not ask Mills why he made that one sided remark about us TCs but said nothing about the GCs?

Sorry for the delay, I had a nap :wink:

Well you are wrong on few things here. One is I never said that i do not have the dream that one day there will be one flag that will represent us all. If you read Kikapu's report about the two president meeting my name is among the "true Cypriots" as he call us...the ones that want unification.

By the way I did not comment on Mills post because I am sure that his comment came from this forum. I was busy for the last few months and did not follow much the Cyprus problem section but from what I understood some TC reacted in a bad way when Sotos (if I am not wrong) posted a flag with something on it. Really I have not seen that and do not know what is been said, but I guess that comment was from that thing. I might be wrong of course.

By the way, I know Mills opinion in some way and I know where you coming from as well. Thats why I reacted with that way and as you want to protect your "side" I want to do the same as well, but in my case I am trying not to divide the island.
