Today marks the start of the 2010 Olympic Games — everyone knows that. But it’s also the start of the GeneaBloggers Games for Winter 2010 as well.
And so, I give you my flag:
I had a more heritage-inspired flag, but it ranked up there among the world’s ugliest. It was really busy. No, seriously. I’m sparing your eyesight by not posting it. It had cross-sections of the flags for Ireland and Germany interspersed with cross-sections of the state flags of Maryland, Virginia and Texas. All of this nestled under the header of my blog. Biz-ee.
I couldn’t do that to you, my readers, and so instead I opted for the more understated and pleasing to the eye upper-left-corner of my blog header, which I noticed at the eleventh hour just happens to be flag-shaped. Perfect!
