I cannot say for certain when it happened. But it did. Somehow this flag found itself hijacked and soiled
by a generation of far right nationalists. They wave it with a hateful passion and slur out "Proud to be
British, proud to be British, to hide all manner of personal prejudices, Bit by bit, one angry drunk protest
at a time, the union flag became a symbol of hatred, a new wave of intolerate.
I am just one, honestly unimportant man. I have no right to tell any man, woman, or child on the face of
the earth what to think, what to do, or what to feel, You have the right to hate as much as you have the
right to bye and to care,
What i can do though, is take a stand. What i can do is grab this symbol and snatch it back from those
who perverted it, defiled and soiled it. What i can do is make a statement, that the Union Flag of the
United Kingdom, is not a trademark logo for intolerance, racism and Nationalism.
It is not theirs to do with as the please, it belongs to eberyone.
With that said, you might ask, how do we do this? how do we start an age where this flag inspires pride, a
proud heritage, a sense of belonging to a great and civilised country?
By acting like it. Celebrate our heritage, act with kindness, for (/ "THERE IS NOTHING WRONG
WITH BEING PROUD DI: BEING BRITISH" screamed by a football hooligan or new age nationalist, go
out into the world and make Britishness something to be proud of,
Together, we can take back our flag.
