Great United Kingdom Brigade?

Remember a while ago when a United Kingdom Labour MP suggested that the Union flag be redesigned to incorporate the Welsh dragon? The Daily Telegraph ran a poll seeking design ideas and guess what had the highest amount of votes?

Second place?

The designer for the winning entry(4channer no doubt) is a Norwegian who said that he intended the flag to represent the union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland in a modern, cool light and that the dragon itself(I think he meant the flaming red skull, but I guess he’s not telling them that…) was inspired by a Japanese anime television series.

“It represents shouting “UNION!” and joining together; kicking reason to the curb and doing the impossible; fighting the power, and piercing the heavens,” he said

And what impact does he think the new flag would have on foreigners like himself?

“That the UK is awesome. I just hope they don’t think it’s a pirate flag.” <— LawL

Moar.
