I like this, because it does not specify which flag it is, and there are so many out there with red, white, and blue, most people in the United States think Oh, this is the American flag! People in Britain think Oh, this is the British flag! Who knows? It could be the Czech Republic's flag for all we know! I like this sentence. :P

Of course not the French flag, the French flag is "Blue, White, and Red".

No offence, but it seems that word order makes a difference in some peoples minds when listing colours.

Esperanto does seem to use commas differently. I see it with "ke" especially, setting off a clause in a way that would look unnatural in English.

Given that Esperanto usually tends to be closer to European languages than to (American) English, I think probably it tends not to use the Oxford comma. The same is true, for example, of my native language of Dutch.

I see blue in the middle of the Brazilian flag, as well as the two colours that you mentioned.

Do Brazilians not count the blue?? :(

On the subject of the comma, this appears to be a difference between (British) English and American English. In British you should not have the comma before And, in American you should have it. I think the rule book for American English is the Chicago something. French French definitely goes along with Esperanto in not having the comma there. The Oxford dictionary is not recognised as having any authority in England.

I am American and I was not taught to use it in school. I live in California. I always thought it came from Oxford University in England, though some people call it the Harvard comma and Harvard University is here in the U.S. It is actually a style of writing that is opposed by some groups and mandated by other groups in both countries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_comma#Mainly_British_style_guides_supporting_mandatory_or_typical_use

[Wikipedia article specifically about Red, white and blue tricolor flags] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_White_and_Blue)

A section of another wikipedia article So.. there are 38 such flags, of which 36 are sovereign nations while 2 are significant territories? (debatable; I'm just quoting from the first Wikipedia article as of 30/11/2017, the second is much more comprehensive)

Sovereign flags Australia, Cambodia, Chile, Cook Islands, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cuba, Czech Republic , Dominican Republic, Faroe Islands, France, Haiti, Iceland, North Korea, South Korea, Laos, Liberia, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Paraguay , Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia , Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom (The Union Jack), United States

Others Sint Maarten (Constituent country of the Netherlands) Schleswig-Holstein (Northern-most state in Germany)

You're welcome! Glad I could help.

On my Android, I use the MessagEase keyboard, which allows many character combinations, and certainly includes all characters you need for Esperanto. However, it is a bit different in form to regular keyboards, and does take some getting used to. Before that one, I had a more typical one, but I'm afraid I cannot recall its name. But know at least that they are out there.

Oh, and if you lack an Esperanto keyboard, you can always use the x- or h-system for representing the special characters (I don't like the h-system much because in theory you can get ambiguity). So for the x-system, you would write cx for ĉ, sx for ŝ, ux for ŭ, etc.

estas (meaning is/are from the verb esti meaning to be) is a linking verb, which is a particular type of verb that does not take the accusative. Other examples are fariĝi or to become and ŝajni or to seem. This is the same reason that some people say one should say "It is I" rather than "It is me", although this is not so common anymore in English nowadays.

Yes, it's possible, and some Esperantists do it. I think people use it or not mostly on the basis of what they are used to from their own language(s). As a Dutch person, for example, I am inclined to leave it out; most people from the US would probably be inclined to put it in.
