  • I am trying to follow the directions on uploading the flag and do not see the UPLOAD NOW. Also I tried uploading my facebook picture by right clicking and copied the url and was directed to a page stating it wasn’t correct

  • Thanks for this Samuel! I uploaded my profile pic on FB an hour ago with a Nigerian flag filter and already had a friend ask me what it represented/meant in a thoughtful way so I could spread knowledge to her.
