While a nice flag to look at, to say its shiny is infering you had a choice where to be born and that you should be proud of it. To be proud of something you had no say in, and no choice about is kind of rediculous.
What if someone made the choice to immigrate? What if someone had the choice to leave and didn't? I agree with you on the matter of gender/race/shoe-size/whatever, but you certainly can chose the country you live in and whether you choose to be proud of its standard.
