Sochi Flag Mix-Up by Ravyn-Karasu Sochi Flag Mix-Up by Ravyn-Karasu
So, early on in the Sochi Olympics, there was a flag mix-up between Canada, Netherlands, and USA. When I shared the score board with a friend on FB who happens to RP Canada from Hetalia, she screamed out (in character) "NO! Give me back my Maple Leaf!" Aaaaaand, that prompted me to do my first Hetalympic painting. I feel bad that it took the entirety OF the Sochi Olympics to actually get the things done.


It was a pain in the ass to paint. Canada was the MOST cooperative character. He's paler than I had expected, but I figured...he takes his Maple Leaf VERY seriously.

For those of you who have NOT figured it out yet, YES, I KNOW the flags are wrong. That's the joke.

First time painting America and Netherlands. America's map of the US was a pain to paint too. The joke there, for those that don't know, America, despite having traveled the world, tends to only use a map of the USA to find things...a nod to how most Americans tend to forget anything exists outside of our own country.

The characters are from Hetalia if you haven't guessed by now. Also, in case you can't see America's map too well, the images are of the Statue of Liberty, The Seatle Weather Needle, Mount Rushmore, and the Alamo.

I can imagine Norway and Austria high-fiving somewhere, since their flags are correct, whilst Russia's squashed away with the person responsible for the mix-up, giggling like a schoolboy because it's his revenge on America for being a douche to him :XD:

Russia trolled USA really good during the Olympics. I actually think Americans overreacted over the stuff that happened. I heard people getting so up in arms about the rings and stuff. I don't know if it was an accident or not the first time...but I thought it was funny. It was even funnier when Russia did it again in the closing ceremony. Then again...Americans seem to have a favorite pastime of finding stupid crap to get all offended about.

So, yeah, I could see that happening. I dunno why people think Russian's can't be funny

Personally, I think America overreacts to a lot of things that Russia does ^^; Though, here in the UK we had a good old laugh over the ring fiasco, mainly because it's the sort of thing that'd happen here =p I love how they parodied it in the closing ceremony too! :')

I actually find some of the stuff Russian's gets up to to be hilarious XD

Apparently there was another flag mix-up as well but I only just saw a capture of it the other day and don't plan to do another Hetalia reaction for it. But it is pretty funny. I've done a few Hetalia pieces but this one seems to be the most popular and most far reaching lol

I don't necessarily ship any of them, however, USCan can make sense as does NedCan...so I don't DISLIKE those ships. I can enjoy them. They have some validity.  NedUS, okay, that's just wrong LOL.
