Help a buddy out.. Brucemoon wrote a report out for Figi, but when you look at the headline it says the following..

We don't know how to change it the computer has taken over!!

"Fiji, Saudi

> Arabia - flag Saudi Arabia - Al Mad┬┐nah

brucemoon's travel

> reports

Fiji - in the Pacific - land of smiles and warmth"

I noticed that too and wrote a comment in the report. This is not a GLOBO error. The flag is correct for the town of Fiji in Saudia Arabia. The report was mistakingly uploaded by looking for a country name instead of a city/island name. There are cities in the world called "Germany", "Africa", "Angola".... and the COUNTRIES they are in will show the correct flag.



Another similar problem recently was St. Petersburg (Russia) showing the american flag. The report was mistakingly uploaded for a city of the same name in the USA, rather than "Saint Petersburg, Russia" or "Sankt Petersburg, Russia". This was corrected by the member.



There are more examples, will look for them...
