    It's already been mentioned but displaying the flag helps a lot especialy when a member is asking what video card he should buy or parts. More than not most people go right to Newegg and list suggestions only to find out that the person lives in another country and not everything is avalible to them as for those of us in the U.S. Fabe

    I have completely another reason. I am an immigrant, living in a new adopted home country. I am proud of my Finnish roots and want to show it. I also want to show Finland is, however, not the country where I live.

    To me, it's important to show both Finnish and Saxony's, my home state here in Germany, flags.

    Hmm, Kari you made me think, I am from South Africa but living in Scotland and I am proud of both places, so I have changed mine to show that too.
