Vladik's blog

By Vladik, 4 weeks ago, translation, In English

Greetings to all belarusians who actively, or not so actively, participate in this amazing community we have on Codeforces.

I would like to ensure that we have your support to initiate changing the flag of Belarus on this website to the historical white-red-white flag, since the current official flag of Belarus has become strongly associated with crimes against humanity, with the brutality, torture, ferocity and human rights abuses which have, sadly, become commonplace in the past few months in our beautiful country.

Outside of public forums, in closed community member chats there is a consensus on the fact that belarusians should have the ability to perform under a different flag by either letting them individually choose which flag they prefer or by changing the existing flag to the one suggested above.

Some platforms have already gone through with similar changes, for example one of the largest russian-language sport website sports.ru or a very popular chess website chess.com.

But no such change has a right to be performed without wide support from the people who will be affected by it.

This is why I'm asking every belarusian to express their opinion on the topic in the comment section of this post.

Judging from the upvotes, the election commission might have mistaken fraction 0.8 with 0.8%. Rookie mistake.

Well... now it would be about as non-political as adding Tibet to the list of countries.
