I tend to agree with mj, but that's just me.

Maybe because Air Tahiti Nui has the French Polynesia flag on their aircraft.  :)

French Polynesia is ultimately an autonomous province or region. We wouldn't give special flags to the Aland Islands, Mount Athos or Bougainville special flags, so why should we give French Polynesia one? It even has the word 'French' in it.

French Polynesia has the same country-like status as England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Greenland, Aruba, and Curacao.  Let the admins deal with the flag/country status issue.

Actually you're right, Air Tahiti Nui has the French Polynesian flag on its aircraft and not the flag of France.  Besides alot of media classifies Tahiti and French Polynesia as a seperate country than a territory.

Air Tahiti Nui is also the flag carrier of French Polynesia, and it's impossible for there to be a flag carrier without the country! OK, I agree with you now.

Leafsfan:
Not to be picky I think you should include the French Polynesian flag as well.
