There are many events across Norfolk. Just check on Google.

Thats always good for the county - but I do wish those flying the flag would fly the right one!! The one with the red flash across the top is the Norfolk County Council flag or something like that - the correct Norfolk flag is just yellow with black band across.

Thats nearly as bad as flying the Red Ensign from a jackstaff!!

Nearly but not quite. Mind you we fly the Gods Country white rose from the ensign staff

That is your choice, to use it as your "house flag".

If you flew it from the jack, it can strictly only be worn when under way.

Norfolk is Gods own county, otherwise you Yorkies wouldn’t be so ruddy keen to come here!  :default_hiding:

How on earth can you possibly claim that Norfolk is Gods own country?

1)  Three wise men? 
2) Virgins?

Then of course Yorkshire is mentioned in the Bible - Three wise men came from the East Riding - on camels

Lastly after COVID lockdown ended, JC said to his Dad ‘Where have you been?’

God said touring Yorkshire 

JC - During lockdown?

God - I’ve been working from home son

The jack staff is on the bow from which the Union Jack is flown, the only time it is the Union Jack, if it's flown elsewhere its the Union Flag.

The Ensign staff is on the stern..


Sheds a little light on the subject of jack versus flag.
