Added DiffLines:

* like most national flags, the Union Flag flown upside-down is a distress signal at sea. The problem is that this is a fairly subtle distinction, involving the width of the diagonal white stripes, and most people wouldn’t recognise it if they saw it
* note that the Union Flag and the red-on-white Cross of St George denote the UK and England, respectively. The St George’s Cross was rarely seen until recently, but it is making a definite comeback.

* "Cold War" is one of the unlockable camouflage suits in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater''. It's a combat suit with the entire front end painted in a Soviet flag while the back is covered with an American flag. The joke is that since the enemy soldiers are Russian, they will hesitate to shoot you when you're facing them with their flag showing, but will be more than happy to shoot as soon as you turn around and reveal the American flag. There are also unlockable face paints of the flags of various countries, including the United States, Great Britain and the Soviet Union... In Soviet Russia!

It may seem like a JokeItem at first, but it's actually useful in the rail-shooting portion of the game, especially if you're going for a PacifistRun. There are also unlockable face paints of the flags of various countries, including the United States, Great Britain and the Soviet Union... In Soviet Russia!Russia! Though these face paints are actual {{Joke Item}}s, as there are no in-game advantages to using them whatsoever.
