    Very wishy washy flag, looks like a tea towel. Let’s have another competition a bit more wide spread this time. Look at Middlesex, Kent, Lancashire, Herefordshire, Berkshire, seven Surrey ——- now these my friend are FLAGS!!!!

      Pleased with the choice. Alot of respect to the designers as it covers historical and forgotten routes
