Personally, I like it.
Credit to a fellow member of the 'OWC' website for what I believe should be the new flag that finally differentiates us from the rest of the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
The old 'Ulster Banner' quite simply didn't have the appeal to all sides of Northern Ireland's very much divided community. With this flag I believe it can represent something, every citizen of this great little country of ours, can relate to. Especially at Northern Ireland football matches. With all that green seen on match-day's within the ground it would be a great idea to include the colour in our future flag. Add the 'St Patrick's Cross'. And while we're at it, stick in the Red Hand of Ulster within the six-sided star (of St David) representing the six counties that make up 'Norn Iron'.
Certainly I would welcome YOUR views on the flag.
What's your first impression?
What's your second one?
Do you think it is representative of Northern Ireland?
Would you prefer it with/without the crown?
Can you relate to it?
Would you be proud of it?
What were your views of the previous official flag of Northern Ireland - the 'Ulster Banner'?
