BBC Radio Leeds turns to Northern Flags as the trusted authority on all things flags
Adding to two previous radio appearances this year which have included BBC Radio Cumbria. Northern Flags known for our many years experience in providing a vast range of flags, from nationals, custom and feather flags was sought out by BBC Radio Leeds reporter Richard Edwards.
Richard interviewed our Operations Director Jayne Brogie live on Tuesday 29th May’s Martin Kelner & Kathering Hannah breakfast show on the recent wave of patriotism running up to the Jubilee, Euro 2012 and the Olympic games.
Jayne commented that we have seen an uptake in the orders for Jubilee related products such as bunting and Union Flags.
Richard asked how the listeners could avoid flying their union flags upside down and under what circumstances does the Union flag become a Union Jack.
Jayne confirmed that the Union flag when installed correctly has the broader white stripe at the top left hand corner and that flying it upside down is a distress signal.
When the Union flag is flown at sea it is then known as the Union Jack, on land its correct term is the Union flag.
