    Why is this forum's avatar the symbol of NATO (Polaris star???) ? Yes, America is the largest nation in NATO and Canada is in the Americas.

    However, the US and Canada are more than just NATO members. Even geographically the US and Canada are more than the just North Atlantic countries.

    Am not sure Presidents Chavez and (is Fidel's little brother still in charge) Castro would appreciate being grouped with "capitalist lackeys".

    Is it a NATO star?

    or is the forum avatar as below?

    Those who know about others would know that this is the Ashoka Chakra, which is a depiction of the Dharmachakra; represented with 24 spokes. It is so called because it appears on a number of edicts of Ashoka, most prominent among which is the Lion Capital of Sarnath. The Ashoka Chakra is at the centre of the National flag of the Republic of India.

    How does this fit in?

    or even

    OK.

    Thanks.

    It is not the forum's avatar, but a subforum's avatar.

    One should not be perfunctory in asseveration.

    Leads to consternation and confusion.
