Come on England!

Who would have thought it – England topping their group at a major Championships!  Is luck on our side this year?  Let us see what Sunday bring with a potentially tough quarter final against Italy but let’s get the flags out and cheer on our boys!

Turning the clock back a few weeks, I just wanted to say that we were all proud as punch when watching the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee pageant as flags made by our own fair hands could be seen sailing down the Thames.

The Moray Gig, a 38ft traditional Scottish sail training vessel was part of one of the pageant and it flew the Red Ensign and the Moray Flag which were produced here at Hampshire Flag.  Thank you to the crew who recently sent us a great photo which I wanted to share with you all.

A summer of sport

As the nation gets set to go sporting mad this summer we’re already out of the starting blocks at Hampshire Flag!

The Euro 2012 is about to kick-off and we have been processing orders for footie fans far and wide keen to support their team with flags and banners.

Support England - fly the flag!

Support England - fly the flag!

London 2012 is just around the corner and preparations have certainly been keeping us fit! With the torch relay now making its way across the UK, we’ve seen great demand for flags and bunting to decorate the seafronts and towns which the flame is passing through.

Sporting events aside, the summer is always a busy time for us with festivals, fairs and celebrations of all kinds generating an array of fascinating and one-of-a-kind orders for banners, bunting and flags.

We hope flaming June starts to live up to its name and if you’re a fan of the beautiful game, may your team come up trumps!
