2011 Mini Countryman: Can I Get a Canadian Flag?

June 06, 2011

I'm Canadian. I could see myself buying a Mini. Therefore, it seems only logical that I'd want a Canadian flag atop my Mini.

But, can I get a Canadian flag graphic on the Mini Countryman?

Nope, wouldn't seem so. Actually, doesn't seem like you can get any of flag graphics for the Countryman's roof, other than the greyscale Union Jack that can be fitted atop the sunroof. What a bunch of crap. What if I wanted to honor my two Scottish grandmothers in the best, most logical way I can think of: a St. Andrew's Cross on the roof of my car.

I also noted that Mini got rid of the Puerto Rican flag decal for the Cooper. Not enough takers? People complained that an unincorporated U.S. territory gets a flag graphic while real states don't? They'd have a point. I'd certainly like to see this on a Mini.

But any way, I think it's pretty obvious: No Canadian flag, no Mini Countryman. I mean, we all have to have priorities, right?
