The all red one looks a bit too serious to me. I'd go for the one on the middle left.

I did that when I gigged frequently. I have a Sonic Boom Six ticket from 2003.

Just putting everything in order is bringing back memories of what life was like during various periods (e.g. 'shit' and 'marginally less shit').

The only custom one I got was a Sparta one (yeah you heard me). On that note, I also got them to sign the shirt I was wearing at the gig at the time, which I refused to wear or wash and is currently festering in a drawer at my folks'.

Yup. They could have given GB a darker colour :lol: Also as there's contention as to how the English/Welsh/Scots relate, they could have broken it down - there's no knowing what same belongs to which. Ditto Yugoslavia. I hear Croatians are touchy about being distinct from the Serbs so it'd be interesting to know.

Have you seen the 23andMe map? It's total spaghetti: http://blog.23andme.com/wp-content/uplo ... opeans.jpg

In the Balkans it seems to be a Nazi version of The Jocks and the Geordies - anything for an identity.
