A new Turkey will need a new flag!

Turkey Minor discusses a brand new constitution. Aristotle defined a revolution as a major constitutional amendment. Turkey's biggest challenge is how to address the long-standing Kurdish issue. Kurds seek nothing less than the transformation of the country into a federation between ethnic Turks and ethnic Kurds. Not dissimilar to what tCypriots ask for in Cyprus. I propose a new flag to accompany the new Turko-Kurdish constitution, with one olive branch for each of the major communities of the country to signify their living in peace in a united land.

Turkey's Kurds & Cyprus' tCypriots

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
