Presentation of Moderdonia

Moderdonia is a fictitious country created in May 2017 by the humorists Ignatius, Quequé and David Broncano in Valdelagua, a village of the Province of Guadalajara (Castilla-La Mancha) inhabited by three. Moderdonia is the main site of the radio program La Vida Moderna (Modern Life) released by Cadena SER, which is also broadcasted on TV and YouTube.
In the aftermath of the "dissolution" of Moderdonia (end of the program) on 21 May 2018 (during chapter 137 of season 4), La Vida Moderna turned into a live show performed on stage by the three humorists (website).

Flag of Moderdonia

The flag of Moderdonia (photo, photo, photo, photo, photo, photo, photo, photo, photo), presented on 7 May 2027 by Ignatius Farray on his Twitter account, is fuchsia with an horizontal white stripe near the bottom and a white "M" surmounted by a white star in canton.

The flag is featured in several episodes of La Vida Moderna (video, photo, photo, especially the "Honor the Flag" episode (video).
The viral popularity of Moderdonia among the youth and the widespread use of its flag, as well as calls for transformation of the "mental State" into a registered political party, have been interpreted by Mariona Ferrer, Professor of Political Sciences at Universidad Pompeu Fabra, as partially rooted in the aspiration of many young people "to find referents questioning the speeches of unity and rupture and breaking with them. The polarization of public opinion in the aftermath of the Catalan crisis and political disillusion are huge (in the program, the Spanish State is called Antiguonia, from antiguo, "old"); accordingly, displaying the Moderdonia flag can be seen as an answer to the massive display of Spanish and Catalan flag to support either unity or rupture.
