Continuing the theme about the blithering idiots that call themselves football fans, let us today examine the idiocy that is doubleflagging. Doubleflagging is a word I have just invented, (no hit's in Google), so I get to use the "words"-tag that I have sadly neglected.
Anyway, double flagging is defined as:
The practice of simultaneously displaying the flags of two different nations in the context of an international competition. Source: http://borislegradic.blogspot.com/2008/07/Doubleflagging
Because you never see (in Switzerland) a car sporting, say, the German and the Russian flag. Or the Italian and the Dutch flag. No, it is always Swiss and one other.
And the reason for this is that the people who are doubleflagging are saying: "Yay (flag displayed) for the win!". But then they remember, that they are not actually in their home country! The horror! What if somebody takes offense? Or worse (if they have Swiss citizenship), what if they get mistaken for a foreigner? So they quickly put up a Swiss flag, as well. Phew! Close one!
Only, what they are now saying is: "Yay, (flag displayed) for the win! But I am Swiss, you know! Switzerland is cool too! Both are cool! I hope both of them win! I am not a foreigner..."
You know, If you have to destroy the aerodynamic shape of your car with a stupid flag, at least grow a pair and stand to your choice. Doubleflagging just exposes you as the recreant you are.
