Bibliographic Notes

This book sets out in concise form the history and growth of the British Flag. Commencing with brief sketches of the lives of the Patron Saints it shows how their banners were combined to form the present flag; the correct way to fly it and the restrictions imposed on its use at sea.

A brief note on the flags of the Commonwealth period and a handy proportion chart as an aid to drawing are also included.

Throughout the book the coloured illustrations are embodied in the text, for ease of reference..
