    Graphically the flag of England suffers from a large white background that is quite sterile and stark. The Scottish flag being blue doesn’t have the same problem. Neither does the Swiss flag being red.

    It would be interesting to see how the English flag would look if the ‘reddy’ red cross were subtly changed to a deep, almost burgundy red. Far classier.

    I think that there should be more information regarding the flags major events and origin of the flag so that the people that don’t have any idea what the flag is about or things like that they will be able to come to this website and read about the flag.

    I wonder if these companies that deface the Cross of St George with the word “England” across the horizontal bar or even four lions passant, one per quarter could be encouraged to desist? The ones with the added text strike me as tautological, as bad as “PIN Number” or “PIP Payment”.
