"My Best Friend's Wedding" Flags

Postby Chris Green » 09 Sep 2015, 11:26

A well-known British manufacturer of flags has just produced a set of "heraldic flags" for a remake of the film "My Best Friend's Wedding". I reproduce one here:

I simply cannot bring myself to undertake a criticism of the flags one by one. Suffice it to say that to use the word "heraldic" to describe them is an affront to our art and science.

Our client was overjoyed with the result commenting on how “wonderful the flags look” and what a “fantastic job” the ream had done. Even adding “I will definitely be using your company again when I next need something like that done!” So we’ve all got our fingers crossed for a blockbuster premiere for some more Flagmakers flags.


It always amazes me when companies cannot do a simple spell check or proof-read before publishing.

What, you don't think that fimbriation covers all heraldic sins? ;)
