Iraq's New Flag

Iraq is on the hunt for a new flag. That’s according to the AP, who are reporting that a design contest will be held to find a replacement for the old red, white, and green.

a committee will select three designs to be presented to the parliament, which will vote on a new flag by the end of this year.

So why does this get a WTF? They just changed their flag in January! Also, is a new flag the number one concern? I think most Iraqis have bigger things on the brain than the design of the flag. In fact, shows like Alive in Baghdad will illustrate that is in fact the case.
