I don't know about other people's experiences when wearing your own country's flag to go with another country's BDU, but I'll share my story with you:Originally Posted by webfoots
A few years ago I went to Gothenburg (Göteborg, you know) to play Airsoft with a few of my friends that brought a few more friends with them. So, I had my M/90's with me and I decided to sew this 4,8 x 3 cm (standard BDU issue) Finnish flag onto to the place of the Swedish flag.
Well, we gathered up with our stuff when the "match" was about to start when these Swedish guys start to eye me like a bunch of crazies. There was actually just two of these completely Swedish guys and two other Swedish-Finnish guys with me there.
Through the match, these two guys treat me like I would have just wiped my ass into the Swedish flag and used their national song's lyrics in a dirty song.
Needless to say, It wasn't exactly a good idea to mix country A's uniform with country B's flag since people might actually have some issue towards it.
Luckily I didn't know Swedish that well to know what the two "pure Swedes" were talking about, but I assume that they weren't too happy about my mixture of uniform and flag.
Come to think of it, it was a pretty dumb stunt to pull off at the time but I thought that I was actually trying to honor the other players that way. Or maybe the "pure Swedes" were just a bit too arrogant over their country's flags and uniforms, go figure...
