Relax. Since discovered red was just “commonwealth” not empire.
Reminds me of an old quip from the late 1960s in which an American humour magazine was poking fun at Canada and our apparent quirks:
Why is Canada always coloured red on globes?
How the world has changed during my lifetime! ( for the better, no doubt). Notice that much of the world was still painted red then,(Including India, so presumably a pre-independance globe). Wonder what it will look like in 50 years time? We live in interesting and changing times!
