Good for him. I love flags, the stories surrounding them and their design are very interesting.

Secret Symbols.The old religion.1715

They feared the owl would swoop to gouge
The eye of the king wessen namen Georg,
To whom all things ye must now render,
Die rechte Konig, nicht der old Pretender
James!, Who you drink to cup to lip,
And toast him," Go thy way old trip".
Ralph Standish was a Jacobite!
And for this they turned the rat upright.

A cross by the Church where we we stand and ask why
So many young men were sent out to die.

Forgive my ignorance but what is that flag flying?

Comment by: Bradshaws Girl on 7th June 2018 at 15:08

Johnny, the flag is that of the Commonwealth of Nations better known as The Commonwealth. Don't know why it is being flown at the moment though as Commonwealth day is the second Monday in March.

Anyone know what's the biggest money maker in the history of the world? - WAR. To quote Gutle Schnaper Rothschild: "If my sons did not want wars, there would be no none". Who benefits from wars? the people who make money off them.

You’re right Bradshaws Girl, Commonwealth Day was in March, and this photo was taken around that time, as the daffodils are in bloom.

It’s lovely to see flags hoisted on churches and town halls.
