And before anyone uses this to accuse us of wanting a separate Coptic country in Egypt, I'd like to say that's never been our intention. We wouldn't dream of splitting Egypt up. After all, it was our ancestor the great king Mina who unified it thousands of years ago.

Free Copts have done a marvellous job with this flag.
