"Czech" Flag.

Here's a simple mistake that turned into diplomatic faux pas in Islamabad, Pakistan:

... the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic is visiting Islamabad, and the Capital’s PR people have adorned a number of (very) large banners to welcome him in the spirit of good hospitality. The only problem is that instead of putting the ‘Czech’ flags on the banners, they have ‘Check’ flags!

Oh, this story is soooo funny! What a bunch of morons. I can't look down too much though -- the sign painters we have here at work misspell or mispunctuate about half of what they create. I guess Pakistani sign creators are just as dumb.

Straight talk from Sid.

Last year my girlfriend asked for a Finnish Flag to be painted on her face at a Formula One race. I watched in amusement as the worker painted a checkered flag instead (i.e. finish flag)
