Is this *here*'s Falkland Islands/Islas Mavlinas? Nik 19:43, 21 Feb 2005 (PST)

It is indeed. What I am curious about is where the name Islas Samonios comes from! IJzeren Jan 21:54, 21 Feb 2005 (PST)

Liked the echo of the falkland war. One suggestion regarding the flag. Since they seem to be little more then an oversea territory, they could (like the french colonies *there*) simply use the arvorec national flag undefaced. Whats the origin of the cross by the way ? --Marc Pasquin 06:19, 22 Feb 2005 (PST)

"Samonios" is the Gaulish etymon of "Havaen", the native name, meaning Samhain. The cross is there because the islands are mainly christian, unlike the Isles themselves. Deiniol

Overlooked Gem

I don't know about you survivors but the idea of Celtic-speaking Calvinists moving to the other side of the world and establishing a hardy colony is actually pretty interesting. I feel like a lot could be sculpted of every aspect of its culture: its progenitors, its religion, its dialect, how it's run. I've been doing some research into how these Samonios Islanders can better introduce flora and fauna to the land than the haphazard and usually unsuccessful projects of the real-life Falklanders. We can try to alleviate the suffering of the most isolated people in the world, I reckon. Misterxeight 11:43, 1 August 2018 (PDT)
