    I think it would look better without the chains, less busy. It was a child who designed wasn't it?

    I know, my grandad made em but I think the flag would look better without them done like that. Maybe done in a different way.

    Not a criticism of the child, they've done an amazing job but not my cup of tea but then again I've never designed a flag so what would I know

    I find places round the country having their own "day" rather silly.

    Rather silly and rather pointless actually, long gone are the days when the locals had civic pride.

    Where I live the locals have a tremendous amount of civic pride. At the last event in the village over 200 out of a pop. of 700 volunteered to help and raised £20k+ for the local hospital.There are a number of village events in the year and they are all well supported.

    Is it the difference between town & country?

    Me personally, born and bred in the Black Country I'm all for celebrating it. I've never found the need for a flag, nor have I ever felt the need to have a flag of St.George flying from my property but in these uncertain times people's identity is being eroded so is it any wonder people embrace it?

    I don't need a flag or a day to remind me as it's in my DNA, I'm Black Country through and through but if someone produces a flag to enhance our identity even further I don't mind. I must admit I did initially wonder, do we really need a flag or a day? Why not though?
    There were all sorts of street shows and parties going on around the area yeasterday, nothing wrong with that is there?

    It was all good positive stuff celebrating some of the old ways, I would have thought some of you old miserable buggers on here would have been all for that!

    now where's me old tin hat!
