This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This american flag can be used for decor of sims homes , it also doubles as a light, Happy Fourth everyone.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Omerta, If you don't like it, then don't download it or go Recolour a flag to your Country! Just don't complain about it. and DBCAB, great job!

_OMERTA_ it is not the same flag. Yes they are both the US flags but this one has a different angle on the way it hangs. This will make a big difference to some who need a choice of which to download. If you are so frustrated with "seeing the US flag" on this site then you should just not click on the links that are directed to flags. If you have complaints I would suggest you comment politely and atleast appreciate someone's hard work.

Hi I have gone to the link with the other flags , and have seen they are different from mine , they hang straight down and the pole is bigger, they are very good but still different from mine, what country is your flag from _OMERTA_, if you are that frustrated I will make one for you with your countrys flag, if that will make you happy. Oh, and as for the other posts thank you for the nice comments , and for defending my work I do appreciate it.

Yes, it is a "bloody" American flag. One of the reasons it is so bloody is that Americans have shed so many American lives trying to help others. If you don't like it, don't DL it. I am glad to be able to get it.
In my Sims Game I had one on EVERY lot, now that I have this one, it will also be on EVERY lot.
If you don't like it don't go to the DL area for it.

Great flag! I also like the DIFFERENT way this one hangs than some of the others I've seen.

Funny how SOME people complain about seeing three threads of flags, but don't say a word about 20 different threads for bedroom suites, kitchens, plants, etc.

Great work on the flag. It IS appreciated.

Go figure... the Canadian flag is red because the British North Americans (1776-1982) fought and protected what is now Canada; but what is more important (and for what the red truely symbolizes) is the massive loss of life in which so many had sacrifised during World War I and World War II.

I digress though, it would be nice if a Canadian flag hung vertically like the US one did (as well as the other flags too!) Good job BTW!

Hold on a second.... is it possible to make a "Simlish" flag? And by that I mean, use your imagination and make something completely different? In short, these are Sims we're taking about; not Americans, Canadians, Europeans, Asians, or any other nationality that exists outside your computer... no, these guys are Sims... and I believe they deserve their own nationality!
