I come before the wonderful, gathered community of Suikox forum-goers with an amazing discovery that will shock and awe all of you. As some of you may be enjoying this year's NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the San Antonio Spurs, earlier today I happened to click on a thread which displayed the Kanakan flag, only to be astonished by the similarity between the Kanakan flag, and the secondary logo of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Watch and be awed!

Kanakan Flag


Cleveland Cavaliers secondary logo


If I didn't know any better, I'd say that somebody extremely clever saw the Cavs' logo somewhere on the internet and thought that I would be a cool idea to simply remove the white "C" from the flag and replace with a black trophy-thingie.

SCANDALOUS!
On behalf of the forum goers here, I demand an explanation as to why the two are so similar! Is it simply coincidence... OR did someone steal the property of the Cleveland Cavaliers for their own benefit...? Only a select few know the answer...

DISCLAIMER: Before anybody goes around taking me too seriously, I actually think that this was a really clever idea, because the Kanakan flag looks cool as hell. I'm not accusing anyone of anything shady, I just want to know who the clever artist was... :wink:

Sai Fujiwara don't! You speak too much! Thier are Kanakan everywhere. Look behind the Profile button! It's gone in a flash!

Acutally it's possible Algernon de la Croix is a closet Cleveland Cavaliers fan...

Oh, GOD! This means that the Cavs are REALLY going to lose now! Thanks a lot, Kanakan! Your drunken ways have forced the Spurs to win again!

Yeah, you know... Vextor has mentioned that he resides in Ohio. It's possible that he secretly knows LeBron James, and he's really the guy controlling Kanakan. And if THAT'S true... AND Cleveland gets swept by San Antonio, look for Kanakan to go on a wild rampage next phase!

Of course, it wouldn't have to be LeBron himself... It could be any of the players, or perhaps some random guy that works for the Cavaliers organization. Maybe it's former Detroit Channel 4 secondary sports anchor, Fred McLeod, who's now the play-by-play announcer for the Cavaliers... If that's true, that would be pretty awesome. :D

Actually, in response to your remarks, I do hope the Cavs manage to wing it out, but it'll take guts, that's for sure. Perhaps it was the Kanakan wines that forced them to keep throwing up bricks against the Spurs in Game 1....

I simply can't believe I didn't see the truth of this sooner.

Haha. That actually does make sense, with Vextor living in Ohio. As far as I know, he isn't a fan of Basketball, so it's not some evil plot to subliminally get us to become fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers. ^^ Their flag has always looked pretty cool to me, though.

Look on the bright side-- at least Vextor didn't use the 'London 2012' logo as the base for the Kanakan flag!

Noone should have to see that logo ever again. I mean seriously it is like 80s disco gone wrong.

I like the Kanakan flag, the fact that its taken from something like a sports team doesn't bother me in the slightest. If there was an actual outcry about it I'm sure someone could re-draw it to not be just a recolour.

I like the Kanakan flag and have no idea what the other flag is so it shall forever be the Kanakan style to me!

*shock and awe*

That is super uncanny....but I like the Kanakan logo better. Still, it'll be interesting to find what's at the bottom of this mystery.

Also, I know NOTHING about basketball teams or play-offs, but I'm gonna go ahead and root for the Cavaliers on this one cause their name is better than Spurs and their logo is infinitely superior. :mrgreen:

I actually noticed the similarity of the two logos a long time ago. It surprised me a bit when I first saw it, but it wasn't really that much of a big deal to me. I kinda like it, actually. It makes for a good reminder for me of my favorite sport.

It's pretty boring acually. I just plugged in "flag" and "sword" in google. I didn't even know it was a logo for some sports team.

Please don't call them Cleveland Cavaliers. You don't call them that - you call them LeBron James. :*laugh*:

Never noticed that, though. Good find Sai.

I always assumed French Ninjas attacked you and left it at your place when they fled.

I think I'm going to ignore the truth for now. :)

Considering my deep dark hatred for the sport I must say, bravo for putting a decent looking logo to practical use. Regardless of them having it first, it is obviously rightfully ours, because basketball sucks. :)
