Australian woman living in US triggered by why Americans display so many national flags
- Australian living in US has had enough of American flags
- She claimed ‘there are too many flags’
- She said she “couldn’t tell” what the Australian flag looks like
An Aussie living in the US says she’s fed up with the amount of American flags she’s encountered around the country.
In a video shared on TikTok, Mia Chloe wanders a suburban street expressing her objection to the overly display of American flags in the proudly patriotic nation.
“I’m just saying… there are too many American flags,” she said.
“They’re on houses, they’re on cars…I’ve seen them on couch cushions…”

Mia, whose name is @meanderwithmedia, compared the visibility of national flags in the US to Australia on TikTok.
“You’re the only country I know of that does this,” Mrs. Chloe said.
“The only time I’ve seen an Australian flag was on the Harbor Bridge…I can’t tell you what it looks like.”
“I know it’s blue and it has some stars on it,” she said.
“I think I can draw the American flag from memory… I think I can make a goddamn picture of it.
“That’s how many times I’ve fucking seen it.”
The fed up Aussie urged Americans to hang flags everywhere.
“It’s enough,” she said.
“Let’s stay humble.”

The woman’s post caught the attention of Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who had a blunt message for the young Aussie.
“Go back to Australia,” he tweeted in response to the video, adding a series of emojis featuring the American flag.
It seems that the woman’s TikTok account has been since then deactivated after the recoil.
The video, reposted on Twitter by TikTok’s influential right-wing account Libs, generated a lot of reaction.
“I’m going to hang out another flag,” wrote one American.
‘Merica baby’!’ added one more.
However, some agreed with the Aussie’s views.
“As a person who was born in Houston, I respect this,” one said.
“It’s not just America’s love of the US — it’s a culture of broad patriotism,” wrote another.
One person said they understood her confusion as patriotism with flags is not that common in Down Under.
“People wearing the school teams or the high school mascot shirts. Being proud of your city, your organisations, your church, your clubs does not exist in Australia,” they tweeted.
