When to fly flags?

Ok, so I've got a flagpole. Just because I wanted one. I just want to put up flag occasionally to celebrate important things.
So far on my list, I've got:

St George''s day April 23rd, England flag
HMQ's birthday 2nd Saturday in June, Union Jack
Battle of Britain day, September 15th, RAF flag
International Talk Like A Pirate day, September 19th, jolly roger
Remembrance day, November 11th, UJ
Trafalgar day October 21st, white ensign
Any Royal birth, marriage, death

Any more ideas gratefully recieved.

PS is there an army equivalent to BoB and Trafalgar day?
 


All day, every day, unless you hate the NHS and gay people. You monster.

WALT!
 
1st August, Minden Day, when it's traditional to fly the Yorkshire flag.
 
I think you'll find it's actually back to front and being flown as a distress signal.

As it was very upsetting that no one gave a ****.

I care. I care so much that I'm watching an Ancient Aliens documentary (rivetting edge-of-the-seat stuff) while enjoying my fifth glass of whisky.

Over here the first Sunday in May is Battle of Atlantic Sunday. Another occasion to fly the White Ensign.

My Regiment celebrates July 10 as Pachino Day commemorating its landing in Sicily. A spaghetti dinner is de rigueur. Perhaps the Canadian Red Ensign?

VE Day May 8 and VJ Day August 15.

Star Wars Day May 4. (May the 4th be with you)

You just missed what would have been John Lennon's 80th birthday.

St. Swithun's Day July 15.

I'm trying to think of dates that are connected to either happy or positive things, but can't come up with any. Death and destruction? Plenty. Days to make you feel good? Nil.

How about flying flags of QR codes? You can put what you like up there. Nobody is going to try and read it. What can possibly go wrong? :twisted:
 
18th June. Waterloo day. 31st February. Talk Like a Commando Book Character Day. Strewth skipper, better make a note of that un or Jerry will have you for breakfast!
