Quandary Resolution 4950
sempiternal, vexillology, millefleur, diglossia
"Abstract and floral motifs have enjoyed a sempiternal and universal prevalence in graphic art in the Islamic world", explained the noted Oxford professor of vexillology during his interview on Fox TV News, "and so naturally these millefleur patterns carried over into the design of national emblems and standards adopted during the statehood movement that followed the collapse of the Ottoman empire after the Great War -- or to make allowances for the diglossia which prevails here in your own land, 'Gosh, them Arabs sure do like their li'l flowers and squiggles all over their flags.'"
