Flag making fun
We had a great evening at Molly Malone’s to create our own individual flags to represent who we are. Flag music, snacks, blank flags and colours were provided. Each theme will have a meetup like this
Wy not visit a couple of embassies while you’re in the capital and see if you can spot their flag flying above the building. Can anyone guess the country attached to this flag/embassy near Willesden Green…?
Follow the Flag
When wandering around a town, city or village, notice a buildings that have flags flying outside and go inside. We did this with Bishopsgate Institute in London and discovered a beautiful new library space to hang out in as well as finding new cafes, shops and pubs…
Fly your Values in a Flag
Like these committed vegan campaigners we met in London, join a march or protest to spread awareness of things that are important to you and help shape the world you live in. Prepare in advance by designing and making your flag, then wave it with pride.

There are 197 current national flags. Although there’s quite a few standard ‘3 stripes’ flags in the style of France or Italy, there are loads of fascinating, imaginative and downright gorgeous flags out there. By the end of the month, decide your favourite.

It’s easy to create a flag out of simple ingredients from your kitchen: this is the Bangladesh flag made from green pesto pasta/spinach base and a half tomato filled with chorizo and ginger!

Let us know which is the winner!
With the aid of grenadine (for red) blue caraco (blue) melon Midori liquor (green) advocat (yellow) cream (white) and coffee (black) you can create a triband flag (but be careful to use the back of a spoon as you pour the liquid in, to ensure the colours separate properly!

After searching flag songs, this catchy one immediately grabbed us.

If you’re going on a search for different flags in your local area, this song is the perfect accompaniment!
The Flag – Barenaked Ladies
As our Canadian friend Melissa was down to visit, she recommended this Canadian band to listen to. Lo and behold, they have a flag song..!
Iko Iko – Dixie Cups
This one got us dancing in the kitchen! A golden oldie with a curious title and something to do with flag boys and setting flags on fire…
White Flag – Dido
It’s easy to spend a chunk of your evening dissecting the lyrics to this well-known anthem, and still come out none the wiser. Still, a classic flag song.
