Subject: RE: BS: The Union Flag and English values
To incorporate both Wales and Cornwall the red and white cross could be expanded to red, white and yellow, in any order (red on white on yellow, red on yellow on white, etc.). If Northern Ireland leaves, the diagonal red cross could be removed.
The design of the current flag is made up of crosses representing saints, rather than countries.
Many countries have more than one patron saint, and most saints are patrons of more than one country as well as a variety of districts and cities.
I would prefer not to add details such as dragons, harps, red hands, lions rampant or couchant . . .
Perhaps there should be a competition, with entries reduced to a shortlist, and then a public vote. What's the betting the government would then veto the result.
