Red, white and blue, dear reader. Fabulous colours, they go together really well.
The Union Flag is not only the prettiest flag in the world because of these wonderful colours but because the flag itself looks like the viewer is looking at something through a kaleidoscope.
Other versions were propsed. You can view them, my little maid, by clicking here.
I actually quite like a version used mainly in Scotland where the white bands of the St Andrew's Cross overlays St George's. It's quite beautiful. I especially like the way the red stripes become something resembling an arrow.
Other flags of note using red, white and blue are the French and USA flags. Busy or minimalist, they are beautiful. It is not patriotism which fills my heart with a warm sigh on seeing these flags, although they share the colours of my own as I am neither French nor American. I simply see immense beauty in the colours themselves and their combination.
I see such fabulousness in many flags, though, my lamb, from all around the world. Which ones are your favourites?
