Hi.
Can anyone direct me to a site where I can purchase a 75mm long Red Ensign.I have seen the cotton ones but they do not hang in a convincing way.


Regards Roger.

Hi Frog,

IMO best place to go is Mike Allsop, Scale Flags and Ensigns". He has a stand at many of the shows.
Very good quality, good prices.  Large selection of Red Ensigns in different sizes.  Also does flags and pennants for just about every shipping line going.

No web site as far as I know, but call him on 01476 573331
