Green Ensign

I’ve been busy with other matters, but consider this a bit of brain candy for the soul. If you’re sperg enough to love flags like I do. A few yummy empty calories on the food for thought train. My break from esoterica is over. The retarded epic of Agent Rick continues tomorrow, in which the Agents of ZOG meet the Hobbit King. But after that, likely next week, I will have finished my thoughts on one of my favourite multicultural folktales, being the Settling of Albion. I say multicultural because it is a story which has become simultaneously English, Norman & Celtic.

So it is in that spirit I offer a few images I dug up on the interwebs. A more or less forgotten British flag is the Green Ensign. Long before the formalisation of Kingdom Flags during Queen Anne’s reign, there were many varieties of banner. They were generally recognisable by the Cross (English then British) in the canton. There remain to this day complex rules regarding British vexillolography as determined by international British Maritime Law. The U.S. Flag Code now seems less contrived. Anyway.

The Green Ensign was flown for some time on Irish merchant vessels. It was a green flag, defaced using the Irish Harp Goddess and being overlooked by the English/British Cross. Versions of her flew until Ireland left the Union. Some Loyalists have adopted versions of her, despite Ulster’s accepted flag being a defaced English Cross.

There is a debate whether the flag was official, but is highly attested to by a variety of sources foreign and domestic.

Below are some nice pictures I found.

If you have a high-res of this… Send it bub!!
