Yeah get into flags. There's Australia New Zealand and Hawiii all of whom use it as part of theirs. Myself I would go for minimalist changes- improve the design stuff: this is a great brandmark so it would be a crying shame to ditch it only to let some marketing corporation or Disney snaffle the copywrite.nigelemsen wrote:On a wargamers slant.... this must have seem much simpler in 1745....

oh.. money to be made... who has got the contract to remake all those Union Jacks?
So thin the white trim round the red diagonals and make them symmetrical ( for those who have never looked close they are not ) . Not the Saltire anymore . Easier to draw ( and for us wargamers to paint!) and then there's no problem about which way up is the right way . What's not to like?
Red white and blue are used by loads of countries so the palate stays. And anyway post "Yes" its OUR flag and we can have flying pigs on a canary yellow background if we want- and we can call ourselves what we like too - Narnia ? Middle Earth ? Atlantis - no let's be boring and still use UK and keep costs and confusion down!
