@Dagbiker: As I've said, English is nothing like the language that the europeans were speaking, it was created by English men in England. If you honestly think that you or I could have a conversation with the Germanic tribes then you are sorely mistake.
@Crypt135: In no way did I say that one version is right and proper. I said that they are all English and therefore should be represented by the English or British flag so don't make assumptions. As I've said the English language had influences, yes but it it is still an English creation. American democracy was influenced by British parliamentary democracy but to put a British flag on that would be a farce so I don't accept your point about the europeans.
As I've said it wasn't such a big deal until Americans started attacking my (again, that phrase) national identity. In no way am I saying that British people speak "proper English". Americans speak English just fine and that's why the language they speak should be represented by the English or British flag.
