St George’s Chapel Banners of Arms Hand-Painted by Flagmakers

If, like me, you tuned in to watch last weekend’s much-anticipated Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, then you too would have been awe-struck by the magnificent interior of St George’s Chapel in which the couple were married; truly spectacular, utterly remarkable and every bit an appropriate venue for the special occasion. Here […]

Australia House – 100 years on The Strand

Flagmakers were recently commissioned to make a special flag for Australia House. The mission is celebrating its presence in London for 100 years, from 1918 – 2018 and the commemorative flag we produced hangs proudly outside their building on the Strand along with a neat row of six Australian flags. Australia House is the longest […]

Lulagala – Ugandan Primary School gets its own Flag

We do like the occasional unusual request at Flagmakers and welcome unusual and interesting flag designs. We were asked by Jan Petersen, Head Teacher of North Waltham Primary School to produce a rather special bespoke flag for a primary school in Uganda. The flag was jointly designed by the pupils of the Ugandan school, known […]

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 […]

These stunning, bespoke works of art are so much more than recreations of […]

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. The […]

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 […]
