    Welcome to the forum brianns.

    I think that is how all State/Region flags are labeled, not exactly a mis-spelling but "Labeled" as a country state/region.

    Mine also is listed as "us california".

    The flags are correct though.

    hey guys

    thanks for your replies.

    i just meant that the text under my State/Region flag should say "ca nova scotia" not "ca novia scotia" i have no option to change it to the correct spelling because the drop down list has it spelled incorrectly. as i said it's not a big problem. just thought i would let you guys know yes the flag is correct, but the text isnt

    Ah, I see it now, I stand corrected, it was mis-spelled. (I thought you were talking about the "ca" in the name)

    I personally can't do anything about it but thanks for bringing it to our attention.
