We celebrated. My brother has his own company and part of his logo is the England flag. We celebrated a 'day for England', the fact we are English and I for one am proud of that, very proud infact.

Fair enough....nice to put a Flag up that was the symbol of the Crusades.

Not sure I feel very comfortable about that.

It certainly is Matt and so is "Jerusalem"

Jerusalem
(aka And Did Those Feet In Ancient Times)
Words by William Blake (1757-1827)

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountain green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?
And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!
I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.

Where the strong the weak oppress,

Where the suffering succour crave,

Where the tyrant spreads distress,

There the cross of George must wave!

Great race, whose empire of splendour

Has dazzled a wondering world!

May the flag that floats over thy wide domains

Be long to all worlds unfurled!
