The flag of William of Orange - in celebration his stopping Catholic Monarchs burning Protestants at the stake.

The flag of Northern Ireland - in recognition that the lunatics have taken over the running of the asylum.

The flag of St George - because I was in Eastern Turkey on holiday earlier this year where he was supposed to have been born (or it might have been Coventry).

The Scottish Dragon - for all the Scots who got lost after the last England v Scotland International at Wembley and settled here.

The flag of Canada - a part of our once great Empire that I would have liked to have lived in.

The Welsh Dragon - so that they do not feel left out.

A "straw poll" of my regulars could not determine which flag was the odd one out. It was an equal divide between the Union Flag and the St George's Flag. The reason given by all was the same and was based on the fact that the English were in the minority. Perhaps I have some more room for additional flagpoles (no pun intended).
