Flag of Hezbollah

Flag of Hezbollah

Hezbollah, I’m kinda disappointed. Come on, you’re a Syrian and Iranian funded Shiite paramilitary organization in Lebanon. I know you’re pretty well ingrained into the Lebanese political system by now, especially after that nasty war with Israel a few years back. It’s time to give up the shitty circa-1967 imagery on your flag. Seriously. The iconography is lifted from so many Baby Boomer memories that it’s hard to take seriously these days.

When the moon is in the seventh house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars, then peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars. Oh. Sorry. Slipped into Hair there.

I mean, really – an AK-47 raised high in a clinched fist? They should really think about updating that flag. But Hezbollah, resist the urge to use Comic Sans ironically. I know you seem to go for period fonts. Just because flanel is back in doesn’t make that OK.

  1. That’s not what an AK looks like. Don’t mess with an “icon”. The fist is very Souhaila Saye.

  2. Eh, I have no idea what any guns look like, having never seen one in real life.

  3. It’s either a badly-drawn AK or a badly-drawn Heckler&Kotch G3 Assault Rifle.

    …given that this is Hezbollah I’m going to say it’s the AK.

  4. What’s your opinion about the recently approved flag of the state of Jalisco, Mexico?

  5. you really should have a “suggest a flag” button.

    What about the rainbow flag of pernambuco http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bandeira_de_Pernambuco.svg the decapitated empire of Benim http://is.gd/41lve or the bizarro three legged Isle of man? http://is.gd/41lvx

    Also I would love to follow you on twitter
