THE FLAG OF ST GEORGE

Two staunchly Scottish musicians, intensely proud of their native heritage, have become the inspiration for a website selling – of all things – an England flag!
Granted, listed for sale before it are the flags of celtic Ireland and Wales, together with those of Australia (ultimate destination of so many convicts) and Canada, which includes “Nova Scotia” – and, of course the USA has to get in on the act! – where, I wonder, are the red stars of New Zealand (New Shetland)? These I can readily understand, but the flag of “the auld enemy”? Quelle surprise!
But then it came to me. Portraying a graphic image of an ancient battlefield, littered with pale Sassenach corpses baptised with drying blood, it’s intended as a floor covering for wiping dirty boots! Or have we moved on, and its presence is a peace offering? After all “those days are passed now, and in the past they must remain”.
On reflection, it’s good to see St George offered with the others, but I wonder how many you’ll sell!
