Seen this cracker of a deal in Home Bargains and they had stacks of them in stock too.

Although it is nowhere near World Cup time it might be worth buying a couple to show your patriotism towards the England Football team

Then again dont see why you couldn't use it to fly the flag for the national Rugby/Cricket/Volleyball team ;-)

We could also all buy one and put it in our cars on St. Georges Day (April 23rd), just to let everybody know when it is

Anyway whatever your reason for flying this on your car its a bargain at 29p so make sure you get one from your local Home Bargains. Can beat a bit of patriotism.

Enjoy ;-)

EDIT: Cold Voters write a reason before pointlessly voting cold (Why do i have to keep writing this, it should be compulsory for these annoying anonymous cold voters)

Well in one out of the 4 countries in the UK anyway, I'm not planning to celebrate St. George's Day anymore than you'd be celebrating St. Andrews Day or Burn's Night

(Voted hot since good price)

Aren't they considered a bit chavish? I say that because those are the only cars I see them on.

Do any of you even know who St George was?
Why not fly a flag for the Easter Bunny? That makes as much sense

This post reminded me of the following that did the rounds during the last World Cup:

"It has become apparent that many people of subnormal intelligence have become licensed to drive a car. To ensure that other motorists can identify potentially dangerous drivers, it has become compulsory that everyone who falls into this bracket should carry a warning to other road users, so that they may keep out of their way. This warning shall consist of a flag with a red cross on a white background and must be displayed on the car - or, more likely, the van - at all times. For drivers of exceptionally low ability, extra flags are required".

Oh so true!

I agree with you. i bet at least 90% of the flag flyers don't have a clue about St George himself
but there is some humour in their ignorance. St George was born in Turkey (then an arabic country) to a Palestinian (now an arabic country) mother. :-D
we should be waving Turkish flags instead of the English flag actually
even the English main religion is originally from the Middle East, yet most people are anti-foriegners.

Lol - That puts me into the subnormal intelligence catagory then , do I care - nooooooooo

2 Reasons

1, It messes up your MPG
2. The flag when in motion rubs against the paint work and in my case removed the top laquer off a section of my roof on my 3 month old car,

These are truely Sh*te and would never have one again


Gun

I would also fly the union flag if Great Britain was doing well at anything.Using your logic, couldn't we go back to Adam and Eve and then do away with all the different flags completely.



Sure you are allowed to celebrate England. i just let you know the truth behind what you are actually celebrating on St Georges day and the irony in it all in these times of islamic demonisation.
and also just reminding the fact that St Georges day has nothing to do with England, in fact there are quite a few countries that have a St Georges day.
so i'm just letting people know the humour in these circumstances

St Georges day does have something to do with England. It is England's national day. And wasn't he a Roman soldier born to a Christian family?

While I agree with your general argument, we really shouldn't be waving Turkish flags as Turkey didn't exist this time last century, let alone back in the 3rd century.

George was the son of Roman parents - Asia Minor and Palestine both being part of the Roman Empire back then, as was Britain, so he's as much ours as he's anyone's. Indeed as Britain is the last place to hang on to the first single European (and north African and that troublesome part of Asia) currency that the Romans gave us, perhaps we have a stronger claim on him than the rest.
;-)

Others might say the sooner we get Edward or Edmund back as our patron saint the better. But with both George's and Edmund's day coming in the last two weeks of April where we're already surrounded by bank holidays, I'm for getting Edward back as it would be lovely to get a break in mid-October.

The English National flag has so many negative connotations associated with it (BNP, football thugs, chavs) which is a real shame as you should take pride in your national flag. The Scots, Irish and Welsh do.

The only way of changing this is for the "normal" population to take control of the flag back - use it or lose it to the chavs

Celebrating St.Georges day is more about celebrating St.Georges cross the flag as a symbol of England rather than St George the turkish arab one legged lesbian or whatever else the yoghurt knitters want to call him.

There is nothing wrong with having a bit of pride in your country and taking one day out a year to celebrate.

If you dont like it, fine, go about your business but do not try and stop others who wish to do so.

If we had a secular flag like they do, then I'd take pride in that. There's no way I'm saluting a symbol of religious dominance.

So glad that I'm half-Welsh :thumbsup:

Good point - never thought of it like that before. Although when in the USA a few years back, an old cowboy (well he had the hat and boots!) told us that a lot of Americans believe the stripes to be sunrays leading to the stars of Heaven... God bless America and the Americans eh?

That's good for you to celebrate on Saint George's day, nothing wrong about that at all. it's good for people to be patriotic (for the good causes)
i can say that Saint George has nothing to do with England because he was born 2000 miles from it and England only has the symbol of the Saint George's cross on it's flag, that's the only relative thing.

yes quite a lot of countries celebrate christmas, but again with that, nobody understands the background of christmas.
Saint Nicholas of Myra, Turkey (again 2000 miles from UK) was the role model that created the character Santa Claus. never linked to the United Kingdom himself as with Saint George, he is then celebrated in this country with it's people not even knowing why they are celebrating it.
i mean it's pretty much like everyone celebrating Saint George's day when he could have been a blood sucking pirate, nobody would know because they don't know the backgrounds to their celebratory days

Wouldnt get one even it's free, Sorry i love my country but I dont love shoving one on my car looking like a football hoolagon and a chav. I'm sure acting like a prat and making it clear your british and like football will get favoured in others eyes?

Thanks, I've been thinking about it myself, been doing some reading on ol' Saint George himself.

It appears that he was a man who died for his right not to have to practise the religion of the state he was living in at the time.

I don't see how anyone can fail to see the irony there...

We adopted Saint George as our national Saint so how can you say it has nothing to do with England and have celebrated it for hundreds of years? Also England has been using the red cross on white emblem since 1275.
