Flag dispute?

We've got both of these flags out on the web...which is the one that we've QSS'd? Or is there one? BoArthur

Beats me! I don't even remember if we ever discussed the Georgian flag, let alone what the possible outcome might have been. In my obscured mind the version on Carlos' pages is the correct one, but on what basis? I'm at a loss! Anyway, since Georgia is not really owned by anybody, I suppose the flag is a matter of QAA anyway. I wouldn't mind a working solution in which both flags are used. --IJzeren Jan 04:38, 19 Jul 2005 (PDT)
Both are pretty exclusive. The one with the red field was the one used *here* until the recent rose revolution at which point the one with the cross was adopted. It was until then used by the opposition party.
While it has been claimed to be an historical georgian flag, the concensus seem to be that it is not. It comes from a medieval map where the the flag flying over a fort was confusingly attibuted to georgia (it was actualy a crusader flag showing the cross of jerusalem).
addendum: just so there is no misunderstanding, I'm not saying its impossible for the 5 crosses flag to be used *there* (same mistake could have been done), I'm saying its doubtful both would be used togheter for different function (say royal & national flag for example).

New proposal

Again, your proposal looks perfectly acceptable to me. Thank your for that! But please, tell us a little about yourself first. And like I said on Talk:Cyprus, I strongly recommend you to take a user name. --IJzeren Jan 04:58, 26 November 2005 (PST)

I second that! The proposal looks good! But please take a name. Please? With sugar on top? Zahir 05:20, 26 November 2005 (PST)

... and see Templates for user messages for help regarding infoboxes. I think I understand what you are trying to achieve, but I'm afraid you are on the wrong track. The ruler and ruler2 infoboxes are entirely sufficient for what you need. --IJzeren Jan 05:45, 26 November 2005 (PST)

KINGDOM or REPUBLIC?

The article is about the KINGDOM of Georgia, and yet by the end of the history section it says that Georgia became a republic in 1994. Which is right? Should/could we disregard the proposal (or that part of the proposalif it's not by anyone in particular? BoArthur 11:33, 11 May 2006 (PDT)

I don't know, really. The kingdom > republic transition was an idea of our famous mystery editor (who also introduced female leaders everywhere). I don't really object against the idea, but I'm not going to fight over it either. Since it's an unclaimed country anyway, it might be best to just leave it until someone wants to claim it. —IJzeren Jan Uszkie┼étu? 14:01, 11 May 2006 (PDT)
Ah, see, that's the thing...I kind of was interested in doing that very thing, and claiming interest in Georgia, hence my question. :) BoArthur 14:48, 11 May 2006 (PDT)
What did you want to do (and what system would it require) ? --Marc Pasquin 17:58, 11 May 2006 (PDT)
I was thinking that it would be a germany-like kingdom, with *here's* autonomous regions (Abkhazia, Ossetia and Ajaria) as minor fiefs with fealty to the Georgian King, but otherwise autonomous. So, not too much of a change... BoArthur 07:20, 12 May 2006 (PDT)

Explanation, please

"...but as they only mutually each other mutually, Georgia managed to remain independent." This makes no sense in English. Can someone please explain what is meant. Caeruleancentaur 23:40, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
