Aren’t flags great? When they’re not being plonked on the Moon or stretched around Ginger Spice they flutter above embassies and brighten up sporting events across the globe. And that’s a shame because they also look great draped across furniture, hanging on walls, adorning sun loungers and covering up botties and bits. Enter, with a patriotic fanfare, World Flags.
Handmade in 100% cotton, these heavy duty flags have been created with pole-less patriots in mind. Hang ‘em on the wall, drape ‘em across the sofa or lounge on ‘em down the park. They even double up as eye-catching sarongs or frankly ridiculous capes. Oversized safety pin included.
If none of the above appeal, you can always conform to cliché and wave your World Flag at rugby matches, Grands Prix, Olympic events, music festivals and more. (Football temporarily omitted due to abject embarrassment/‘Don’t mention the score’ policy). Making a bold jingoistic statement has never been easier.
A large choice of designs
Can be used as a decorative throw
All individually handmade
Packaged in a funky wooden box adorned with unique national artwork, each World Flag measures 147x89cm and features authentic frayed edges and visible stitching. Choose from the Union Flag, the Stars and Stripes, Il Tricolore and the Jamaican Flag. We’ve even got a rebellious but historically inaccurate Pirate design for all you heavy metallers and scurvy sea dogs. Aaaarrr.
A great gift for vexillologists (flag scholars, silly) and anyone who appreciates the iconic impact of a great flag, World Flags are guaranteed to reignite your national pride/piratical fervour. So don’t just sit there humming your national anthem, get ordering and fly the flag.
Will you be able to add the Welsh flag? Laura - 13th January 2012
Firebox says: Hey Laura, unfortunately at the moment we are not stocking the Welsh flag.
Do you still do the pirate one? Joy - 16th July 2011
Firebox says: Apparently not right now Joy, sorry about that.
Looks like a kewl product, gotta say though I'd love to see an Irish flag or the gay Pride flag there. Those I would buy! Ash - 19th May 2011
Firebox says: We're hoping to add a larger range soon Ash.
I agree with Fiona, I'd love a Scotland flag, they're so hard to get because no-one recognises the fact that England and Scotland are seperate countries. Becca - 25th April 2011
These look great, but surely advertising that they have "frayed edges" isn't a good thing??
Also, just to correct Sarah on her comment below; They did not change the name of the Union Jack because it was sexist...It is only ever called the Union Jack when flown at sea, at all other times it is called the Union Flag and that's the way it's always been. Brian - 31st March 2011
Firebox says: We think it's a good thing, especially when you are going for a rustic feel and personal touch.
Love the product! :D
I'm afraid though you will be *offending* some people however, as the name of the great Union Jack was changed a few years ago to the Union Flag because it was "sexist" :'). Sarah - 14th March 2011
