I identify as part English-American. I'm just a mix of a few things throughout Europe. English, Irish, Russian, Austrian, Polish... just to name a few haha Although, for some odd reason, people always think I'm Italian, even though that's about the only thing I'm not.
"there is really not much difference between the english nations"
Great Britain may be considered one country, but the nations that make it up still have very individual identities, and probably wouldn't appreciate being described as though they were 'all the same'.
Also, I don't remember anyone saying anything about being 'British English' (which is the term for the version of the English language spoken by Brits). This stamp is for people who are English- or British-American.
I must ammend my comment, I was suppose to write British American and instead wrote British English: this is a bit of an aggressive comment(I ignored your statement of 'English American' which comes due to my unionist views. British English is really a formal and written school of English: regional variation of dialect and meaning are very strong in Britain.
I'm a massive unionist and will always call myself British and not English: we are a dying breed but we do exist! It really comes down to the individual: many of us are British sometimes (the royal wedding will be a lot like this) and English, Scottish and Welsh othertimes. However I apologise if I was a bit blunt, but when it comes down to it, the English Nations (The UK, The USA, Australia, Canada and Ireland) are closely bound together compared to other nations and their differences like Germany to France or Russia to Ukraine)
By this I mean: it really doesn't matter if you are 'English American,' that doesn't really say much. It like saying you are two different variaties of the same plant (in the scenario countries like France or Georgia will be entirely different plant species).
When it comes down to it: Scotland, Wales have become more independant recently and really the The UK (I mean Great Britain, including Northern Ireland would triple this conversation) is splitting apart with every generation.
Sorry to be a bit of a dick, this is just something I'm very interested in!

My grandparents on both sides came to America from England...I'm not sure if that makes me English-American or not XD Even though this would imply Scotland/Wales/N. Ireland as well, I think the UK flag works better than the English flag in this case because of the matching colours. Good job, it looks pretty cool.
