<snip> Ajuk's flag, and the flag of the Ajuk nation, and I'm making this up as I go along, because the Ajuk conculture is still very undeveloped, a solid red field, with 3 bars, all of the same width, running from the bottom left to the top right corners of the flag. The outer two bars would be black, the inner one white, and written in the white bar would be "Zot uzibi dankhinib" - essentially, "Superiority through Unity" It's pronoused, for those who want to know, as /zot uz.'ib.i'ib/. The reason of this is that the Ajuk people feel, on the whole, that by acting as one of their own free will, they will in the end remain supreme. While Ajuk (which is the name of the people, the language, and the nation, but the language could be called "Ajuki Serek", or contracted (which happens quite often in Ajuk), "Ajukserek") is a parlimentary democracy, most actions proposed by the government are either supported or opposed unanimously by the people, in the impression that by accepting a small personal loss the Ajuk as a whole will emerge victorious. Also, what is the email adress to subscribe the conculture list, so I can discuss Ajuk culture over there? I never did come across it anywhere. -- Robert
