Default Union Jack license plate covers?.

Anybody know where I can get a metal Union Jack license plate cover. All I can find is this http://www.traffictalk.com/tt/product/?pid=2576 and it looks a bit crappy. Rincewind had a good one that I noticed on the personalized plate thread.

I think Rincewind may have got his from the Mini dealership, have you tried looking on their (Mini) site?

Thanks for the links. The mini one is pricey, but unlike Bob, we only have to worry about the back plate.

Nice one! I've had my UK flag on the front for a while, it's plastic though not metal and has faded slightly.

Come one everybody it's a Union flag it's only a Union Jack when it's flown from the jack mast of a ship.
How can you expect the septics to know if we don't

Unfortunately they don't sell the actual covers though and as much as I'd like a flag vanity plate on the front of my car, I don't want to drill holes in my front bumper, seeing as we don't need a front license plate.
