With the events in London this summer in full swing, it's a treat to see a lot of flags from various nations! Besides that of your own nation, what flags of other countries do you find particularly interesting, beautiful or moving? Please share!

Re: Community Chat 8/1

Hi everyone,

 

Hmm, it's hard to pick a favorite flag.  I'm going to go with Cyprus because they included an image of their country on the flag which I think is pretty cool.

 

 

I really like the GB Union Jack too.  (Go Team GB! Smiley Happy )

Here are a couple of my favorites, found on The World Factbook site :

 

Isle of Man (It's a really cool triskelion.)

Nepal (It's not a rectangle! Hooray for unique shapes!)

 

terasys - sure! Go ahead and post your question in this chat. We're happy to help. Smiley Happy

Re: Community Chat 8/1 - Now open!

Hello,

 

Does PayPal have a roadmap page?

As, an information page, displaying dates / approximate dates / expected order of events and changes to occur.

 

If there isn't such a thing, could you provide information on if/when it will be possible to receive payments in Ukraine?
With most 'adjacent' countries supporting both sending and receiving payments, it feels to be really 'missing out' with process being only one-sided. More with country being one of largest in Europe both territorially and demographically.

 

Obviously I'm no expert at this field, and can't even guess how things work "behind the scenes", so a small explanation on how the things work (or not work) would help, if these are not as simple.

 

Have a nice day.

YellowAfterlife-

 

I can certainly understand your frustration in not being able to use all of the features that PayPal provides.  You're certainly not alone in that; we get that question often enough that I created an answering post here. Smiley Happy

 

As far as a timeline or roadmap of what to expect from PayPal, I'm sure that one exists.  And while I'm no expert either, I'd be willing to bet the fact that the Ukraine is a send only country probably stems from either legal issues that are unresolved, or banking regulations not syncing up.  And we'll certainly try to work on getting services in there, but regrettably we wouldn't be able to say when.

 

Hope that helps!

PayPal_Andy-

 

Alright, thanks. Will be waiting - hopefully that's going to come sometime soon.

Spoiler
Additionally, you probably meant "You're certainly no alone in that;" rather than "You're certainly on alone in that;"? Fancy changes of meaning from one letter placement.

 

On topic of flags, it would be hard to pick a specific 'favorite', so I'll mention a few random highlights:

 

I quite like the flag of Hong Kong (ref), which seems rather simplistic (as flags should be, perhaps), but contains nice details, and has a clean specification on sizes and spacing.

 

I also like flags of kind that Seychelles (ref) and Marshall Islands (ref) have - containing enlarging "beams" of color. Such look particularly pleasing, waving on the wind.

 

 

Was nice to talk to you - see you later!

I have to agree on all three accounts! The Hong Kong flag definitely caught my eye. Its simplicity is very appealing. I also liked the depth effect of the beams of color in the other flags you mentioned. Good choices!

Hey all!

 

I'd have to say I'm fond of the Brazilian flag.  Did a report on them in sixth grade, and liked it ever since.

 

 

YellowAfterlife!  Welcome to the chat!

 

While we work on researching and answering your question, feel free to answer our icebreaker from above. Smiley Happy
