Guernsey Flag Liberation Day 9th May 1945 Channel islands
This is the official Guernsey Flag, established in 1985 to identify to the world our own identity, as previously, and particularly for sporting events internationally, Guernsey teams would enter under the flag of St Geoge.
The design symbolises both the English and French (Normandy) link, that the islands have had going back 800 years when they were forever changing hands in wars. The red cross is the link to England, and the yellow cross is the link to Normandy.
The flag 1s a Polyester lightweight flag, that will flutter in the lightest of breezes. This quality Flag is colourfast so will not fade, and is double edged stitched to resist fraying. The left hand seam will also have two rust proof grommets to allow flagpole rigging to be attached.
This item is available and very popular in the run up to May each year, so please order beforehand to ensure you secure one of these. Standard Flag size is 5x3ft but smaller size is available
