in the news today is an article about an MP who has suggested that the Union flag (it is only a Union Jack when on a ship carrying an Admiral) should be adapted to reflect the Welsh.
Do you think that after all this time it should be?
The way I see it is this, Wales was and still is a principality of England and therefore can not be included under international rules governing flags. you don't expect the Isle of Man to insist on the 3 legs symbol being added do you, or The Falklands to have their shield design added (or do you?)
I'd be interested to hear from any Welsh person on their views on this subject, or indeed from anyone that has the Union flag as part of their national flag, seeing as they will also be effected (which is around 500 regions, provinces and countries)[/u]
