You'll never look at a flag the same way again

Thanks to sciamanna for this link to the flags of the world graded according to artistic merit.

I was supposed to be finishing my own grading of short stories, but this proved just too hilarious and completely distracting.

It also led me here to another site all about flags. This has lots of background information about the flags of the world, plus stuff on flags I never knew existed, like the Welsh Chartist flag (which I'd probably give a C-, boring tricolour and writing!).

Possibly a useful research source?

I'm pleased to say that the weather has suddenly got a lot warmer. It was cold and frosty and trying to snow when I went to bed last night, but I woke this morning to the sound of rain on the window.

Hurrah! Nasty cold snow and ice is gone -- at least for the moment...
