When it comes to flags, I think you're safe with the Union Jack. As
far as I know it has no racist connotations and people would probably
just think you were British. The Maple Leaf would also be ok, as would
the Stars & Stripes.

I'd avoid the Stars & Bars, though.

we are put in a position where if we express our pride in ancestry it
is racist.
