Indeed.  A scandalous omission.

How about we just get rid of most of them? 80% of them are never used anyway.

The English flag was present when the forum was first started, along with the Scottish flag, but mysteriously disappeared and seemed to be replaced by the Welsh flag. I don't think it's the Masons this time, but the forum could have been infiltrated by Plaid Cymru.  :-X

It may be easier just to have the Union flag, which represents England, Scotland & Ireland. However, as Wales isn't represented on it, we would have to keep the Draig Goch.

You're right, size is everything Yorkie.  L0L

Hmmm...you're right;  there was an English flag.

I think Trojan's on the right track here. The issue is obviously one of relevance to the forum, which is based in Wales. Wales is part of the UK, which is part of the EU. Therefore, those three flags are the only ones of relevance.  Make it so....D)

Ah!  But the Union Jack is the emblem of the UNITED Kingdom which embodies England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  By using only the Welsh Flag, the English (of which there are many in the ThreeTowns Area), the Scots and any Northern Irish will undoubtably feel a bit miffed.   _))*  L0L

The original St George flag was included purely because of the football world cup, I seem to remember...

After having now used the Forum for some time I think that the page lengths need to be lengthened, or number of posts per page be increased.   I find, all too often, that I am having to go back over previous pages to get back to the crux of the thread.   )*)&

I know that posts per page is limited, and one has sometimes to back track, but I think it could be improved as suggested.   D)

That's not as easy as you might think.  It involves tinkering with the actual code of the templates, and that can have unforeseen consequences.
