Today, the yurt also serves as a nationalistic symbol for many Central Asian groups. What part of the yurt is passed down from father to son and is featured on the Kyrgyz flag and Kazakh coat of arms? More...

As The Four Lads said in 1953 :

Quote:
Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it, I can't say
(People just liked it better that way)

Take me back to Constantinople
No, you can't go back to Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks'
