Pictures, videos?

Do they have a tree, fruit, etc in their insignia?

Just curious.

I had a thread last year showcasing the different state flags and emblems. Cant find it at the moment- it was opened by somebody else, also.

Can somebody pull it up for me- should be bookmarked somewhere.

not neccessarily a sign of division. shows we are moving toward true federalism. each state of the US has its own flag, logo, motto and i think even its own anthem

If this is confirmed to be true...and FG just plays dumb with this......other states would follow suit......then I'm afraid for the entity called "Nigeria"

A state flag is different from a National flag dimwits.

All states that make the U.S. have their own flag and crest.

It's similar to Lagos crest and motto.

Even Great Britain which is comprised of several individual Nations (England, Wales, Scotland and N.Ireland) all have their own emblems and flags


Texas Flag

I think what they meant is elements within ogoni formed a separatist movement just like the former mend, and since boko haram seems to be starting a new phase, someone or something has to fill the void formerly occupied by these groups.

Beaf: The man has foolishly been going round with tawun carring unknown flags before him, not just that, but playing an unknown anthem in place of the Nigerian one; even at official functions that demand decorum and gravity. I have been saying that the man is mad, but it might be something else.

Can we also say Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa is also mad?

Gbamm! Ase gun-un. This is a good development bye-bye to 'one Nigeria'. Honestly speaking, division is what can solve this security problem

Many states in nigeria and around the world already have their own flag, anthem and coat of arms. Its nothing new nor should this be alarming. If anything people should be surprise that after all these years bayelsa did not have a flag, coat of arms and anthem. This doesn't mean bayelsa is forming its own country nor does it mean nigeria is dividing. It just a way for bayelsa to represent her self.
