Okay, so basically, they did a half-ass job on designing a new flag for Iraq, and after just 3 hours, the Iraqis already hate it.
For one, they removed the colours that just about every other Arab state is using. Then, there's the removal of the text "God is great" or something to that effect. And finally, there's the obvious resemblance to the colours in the Israeli flag. Not to mention, why do they even need a new flag? The old one wasn't Saddams invention (only the "God is great" bit), so I don't see the point.
