When I was reading the definition of conflagration, I found that it was from the latin word, flagare. This word has the word flag in it, and it is cognate with the word flagrant. However, I saw the word flag in it and I don’t know why. Latin and Germanic may have gone through the same sound change (b and p change to f in Germanic and Latin respectively), and maybe they share the same PIE root. Or it’s accidental
This is a very fitting question for what’s happening in the WH.
