Why Not A Free Iraq Flag?
Posted on 03/31/2003 10:58:05 PM PST by D-fendr
As our troops liberate towns, the flag of Saddam's Iraq should come down. But, as happened earlier, replacing it with the U.S. flag has connotations not helpful to the war effort.
Why not have a new flag for liberated Iraq perhaps one designed by the Iraqi dissident groups?
Then when towns/territory are taken by coalition forces, this flag can fly over free Iraq and just perhaps help inspire the citizens of Iraq.

My first post since the new system. I checked "Vanity" in the topics, thought it would show in the Title, it didn't. Please add it if necessary.
Hope I posted this to the right place.

Yes, I understand what you mean. The Iraqi flag does not have to be considered to stand for Saddam's regime.
My suggestion was some way to distinguish the liberated, free Iraq, territory. Just as they are tearing down Saddam's posters, I think it would help symbolically to take down the flags and replace them with another one symbolic of a new Iraq without the Ba'ath regime.
Point taken though, and thanks for your reply.

Or perhaps this similar one, without the crown:
