change of flag?

I advice you to change the flag of the Republic of Spain to the original tricolour or the 1873 bicolour, the flag with the bull is largely considered a pro-fascist symbol in our country and we republicans don't like it.

...That doesn't make any sense at all, and flies directly counter to a lot of things. The only place that it seems to be disliked is in Catalonia, which explains your opinion, given what I remember about your ideals, Brez. But, overall, it does not appear to be at all true, Brez.

Nothing wrong with the flag.

Ideals

My Ideals change, if I continued being a Catalan Independentist, I will not care about a Spanish flag, but now I am a federalist republican, and that's what I care, I am just trying to adjust this article to the reality, because this flag has never been official in Spain, although the "Fascist" was too much, I recognize.

By all accounts, it is still very commonly used, especially at sporting events. It's not a question of it even being something a republican would not like.

Being a Catalan nationalist would not mean you could not care about the Spanish flag - given that your first notion was to call it fascist, and the communist/socialist-like nature of the parties you support, such a reaction isn't shocking, really. They are still Catalan-nationalist parties, from what I can tell, too ;)

Past that, this is alternate history. It is perfectly conceivable that it would be the flag of Spain in an alternate history from our own.

Breizh, I understand about your view of the flag I used on this page. However, the flag is giving you such an impression for being the symbol of fascist or ultra-nationalist is because the events that already happened in our timeline. However, if everything went differently in my TL, will this flag giving the people in my ATL Spain the same impression as you have today? No, it will viewed in totally different perspective. This is same with, "How can you viewed Franco as ruthless and authoritarian dictator if he NEVER ruled Spain?" FirstStooge (talk) 14:21, July 11, 2013 (UTC)
