Flags That Slap: South Georgia and the Sandwich Islands

Have you ever been to South Georgia and the Sandwich Islands? Have you ever heard of South Georgia and Sandwich Islands? No? That doesn’t matter. All you need to know is that it’s a British territory in the South Atlantic and their flag just… man, it slaps so much. 

I don’t even know where to start describing it. Maybe with the seal and the penguin that are Eiffel Towering a coat of armor? Yeah, we’ll start there. Beneath the coat of armor is a yellow lion holding a goddamn torch, and he’s surrounded by that blue and white checkered pattern that the busty German girls wear at Oktoberfest. On top of this all? A deer with eyes but no mouth, which is, frankly, terrifying as shit.

This is all atop a scroll that features the territory’s motto, Leo Terram Propriam Protegat, which translates to “Let the Lion Protect His Own Land.” Assuming the lion here represents England, this is easily the saddest expression of territorial pride imaginable. They might as well just make their motto the Latin word for “cucks.”

I know what you’re thinking. But come on. The Romans absolutely had a word for cuck.
