Stop Brexit Campaigners – Making themselves seen and heard

Love it or loathe it, Brexit will be here for some time and will continue to dominate our news on an almost daily basis. Those who voted to leave the European Union at the 2016 referendum, can simply sit back and watch the chaos unfold as we do just that. But for many of those […]

A True Act of Kindness – Commemorative flags replaced at St Nicholas Church

Flagmakers recently supplied one of two new flags, now displayed at St Nicholas’ church in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk to honour two sailors; one American and one British. Sadly, they died together in 1942 disarming a German mine which had washed ashore on the beach near the town. The flags replaced two rather tired looking flags […]

Flags Help Tell So Many News Stories

Like many of us, I like to keep an eye on the daily news online and cannot help but note that there is hardly a day that goes by without at least one image used in which a flag is included. Occasionally the story is about the flag itself, but more often than not they […]

Flag Protocol – Half-Mast

War Torn Flags Photoshoot

Theatre Props were approached by award winning photographer Scott Heavey to provide a ‘war torn flags’ look for a photo shoot with Getty Images. We were excited to be apart of this, as most of our flags are either made from scratch or maintenance and restoration type works. Theatre Props intentions with our supplied hand sewn flags were quite the opposite; they did a fantastic job in transforming the new flags in to the required distressed look.

Flag Restoration – White Ensign

We were recently invited to work on the restoration of beautiful old flag which had fallen into a state of disrepair. The flag held huge sentimental value for our client and underwent a long and delicate restoration process to restore the white ensign to its former glory. Flagmakers take great pride our ability to offer […]

VEDay70 & The Union Jack

What a wonderful commemoration VE Day proved to be in 2015! As a flagmaker it was simply spectacular to see so many flags and standards on such proud display over the weekend. It made us think about the relationship we have as a nation with our flag and how it has flown high through war and celebration.

Flagmakers have recently provided a new sewn Union Jack flag to Burwell Village College Primary in Cambridgeshire. The primary school’s Union Jack Flag has replaced a rather tatty looking flag which was flying outside the school previously.

Congratulations to Marathon Des Sables Runners

The Marathon des Sables is said to be the world’s toughest footrace. It is essentially 6 days and 254km worth of adventure in the Moroccan desert. I am very pleased to announce that my Son Tom has successfully completed the event and has returned home safe and sound, if not a little battered and bruised. […]
