Stunning Hand-Painted Flags – more popular than ever.

Recently, we’ve taken pride in producing some striking hand-painted flags for a wide variety of customers and note that these are becoming increasingly popular. Most are based on traditional, historical designs or patterns, often including animals or shields and take on a heraldic appearance. The very nature of these flags is that they are always […]

Ice Maidens all set for Antarctica

Flagmakers are delighted to have supplied a flag to the all-female British team of six extremely brave women who have spent the last year preparing for Ice Maiden, a challenge which most of us could not even imagine possible. This is not ‘just’ a stroll to the South Pole, but an attempt to cross Antarctica […]

RBL standards adorn Ypres chapel

Last month saw the 100-year commemoration of the Battle of Passchendaele, near Ypres in France. St George’s is a Memorial Church in Ieper (Ypres); built between 1927 and 1929 it commemorates the many thousands of British and Commonwealth troops who fell at the three battles fought in the surrounding area during the Great War.

Trust the Flag: A Cypriot Tale

This is a story that in truth goes back over over 50 years. Our involvement with the flag of Cyprus is a mere 13 years old. In August 1960, Ismet Güney’s design for the national flag of the Republic of Cyprus came into use, representing the fact that the country was now independent. In 1974, the self-declared state of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus adopted its own flag, the Flag of Northern Cyprus. The two flags have continued to epitomise the political division of Cyprus which still persists today.

The Scarlet Pimpernel

Flagmakers were recently commissioned to make a 2.5 yard custom flag. The design contains the scarlet pimpernel flower, and we can only guess the meaning behind this design which could be simply the customer’s love and passion for the botanical art. Or the meaning could be much deeper as this flower’s name is a well-known […]

Queen’s Elizabeth II Sapphire Jubilee

Royal Standard flag

We were recently sent some fabulous pictures from one of our favourite customers in California, USA who was proud to fly the Union flag as well as the Royal Standard for our very own Queen’s Saphire Jubilee. I found it hard to match this gentleman’s enthusiasm for this momentous occasion within the UK, let alone […]
