I’m a great fan of flags and I’ve just loved seeing all of the Union Flags around the United Kingdom in the past 18 months or so. It used to be that the British seemed embarrassed of their flag but the Royal Wedding, Diamond Jubilee and Olympics have seemed to change that. I hope the flags are here to stay because it is such a beautiful flag. Not as pretty as the South African flag, naturally, but still one of the best.
Which is your favourite flag and which do you like that are not your national flag? I’m quite fond of the American flag too.
