The Isle of Man has announced today that they will add another leg to their flag.

Currently, the flag shows three legs, the first meaning holiness, the second, compassion and the third community. The fourth leg being added is to represent the island's large export of kippers.

The decision has been criticised as the new flag has been compared to the swastika, a Nazi symbol. This theory holds no water though, said President Adolf in a statement today.

The decision has been met with mixed feeling from the population. Some say that it is about time that the strong heritage of kipper fishing is recognised. However, senior citizens say that the flag is part of the island and should not be touched.

There has also been talk of changing the name of the national anthem from "O Land of Our Birth" to "Hail O Land of Our Birth", although we can't confirm a source.
