Ok, I'm definitely in for Rinda's Scavenger Hunt as now I've looked at the list properly I reckon that there are quite a few that I can cover. A quick Sunday morning walk around the lake led me to my next photo opportunity. My country's flag.
There is an expression over here 'getting your knickers in a twist'. And some people may get that way by me posting a picture of a the flag of St George rather than the more traditional Union Jack. In fact some people will get their knickers in a twist by me calling it the Union Jack rather than the Union Flag. Us Brits can get quite pedantic about matters of our heritage ;-) The Union Jack/Flag is the combined flags of the United Kingdom and represents Great Britain. Getting it flying the right way up is a big deal and shame on the person who flies it upside down as to fly it the other way up is a sign of distress. So to be on the safe side, I have chosen the flag of St George because although to all intents and purposes I am a British citizen I was born and bred in England and that is the English flag. The building in front of it is the Barnabas Centre which has been around since the 1830s so I'm guessing that if there is a right or wrong way to fly the George Cross, they will have it flying correctly!
I'd never noticed the flag before so I guess that another benefit of joining in this hunt is opening my eyes to things I would normally not notice or maybe just take for granted. That Rinda has some great ideas doesn't she?!
