Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    From today's Telegraph: pic of Ben Ainslie.

    I've seen some odd UJs in my time, but this one appears to be correct way up for the top half but upside down for the lower half. Anyone got better eyes than me and can confirm/deny?

    (Having trouble making the pic link work - hope it shows!)

    Second try with link! http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f7/Prastio/th_UJ.jpg
     
  2. This is what the internet said. union_jack.png
     
  3. Precisely my point
     
  4. There certainly does seem to be some oddery about that flag.
     
  5. Made in China.
     
  6. Wouldn't surprise me. Walmart has been caught out selling American flags with 61 stars. Made in China. Maybe the chinks can't count - or think we can't. ;-)

    Note the right hand side of the flag on the boat and compare it to my avatar and the flag that Mad Prof got from somewhere on the internet.
     
  11. Windows clipart used to have that fucked-up Union Jack, so they probably got it from there.
     
  12. Trust us Brits to make our flag anally tedious to get right. Why don't we just simplify it and have the diagonal reds tidied up? Or removed when we get rid of NI?

  13. I was referring to the one further up the page (Mad Prof). Why is it wrong?
     
  14. That top picture seems to be one of those flags is the same ether way, so it's wrong which ether way you put it up.
     
  15. Nothing is wrong with it. The one that is wrong is the one on the boat, which is the one the thread is about.
