Nadine wanted the tricolour to be on Girls Aloud's 'Greatest Hits' album cover, but got the Ivory Coast instead

It’s the thought that counts.

TWITTER IS REMINISCING today on an oft-forgotten event in pop culture.

In 2006, girl band Girls Aloud released their ‘greatest hits’ album, ‘The Sound of Girls Aloud’.

When the design of the album cover was being discussed, it was put forward that the Union Jack be included, as four of the girls – Kimberly, Cheryl, Sarah and Nicola – are British.

But fifth member Nadine Coyle, a proud Derry gal, demanded for the tricolour to included.

In an interview with Hot Press magazine from 2007, Nadine said:

In our Greatest Hits album cover, they had a Union Jack flag on there – on the first draft.
I was like, ‘what is this? If you are going to put the Union Jack on, you have to put an Ireland flag on.’”

Well, fair play to Nadine anyway for standing up for her dual-identity.

Except, they didn’t put the Irish flag on the cover – they put the Ivory Coast flag on instead.

Awkward.

Fair play to Adam and Shane Byrne for spotting this!
