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.

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

Hi
Just a quick update.  Thanks to John, BobK, MikeF and Kiz for putting me in touch with Mike Allsop.
My silk ensign flag came today and it is perfect.
Also many thanks to Mike for sending it so promptly. Im not sure if he is on this forum?
