PhantomNVD: Let's face it, the government in this country (both sides) do whatever they like... Referendums aren't legally binding, there was no option about the flag selection necessity in the first place, and we all know that they are going to change it in spite of a majority of the population against doing so.
A government that doesn't listen to its people...
Democracy? NIMBY 😔
Thank god they're not binding... representative democracy doesn't by design provide its people with a guaranteed say on every last thing, including issues put to a referendum. As irritating, blind, self-serving and incompetent as our politicians can be, I'd take these downsides over a form of direct democracy that included binding referenda any day. Sometimes politicians need to lead change, ahead of the will of a "majority" of the population.
