    Do you proudly display your flag of origin? I see many Motorhomes and Caravans with flags on poles either national or regional and think, why? but also think why not? each to their own. So, do you do this and why?

    Only at music festivals. A couple of flags, a duck spinner and led fairy lights because why not.

    At meets attending with our RVs we always used to fly the Stars and Stripes and the Indiana state flag where our Four Winds was produced.

    Now we have a Hymer but don't fly a German flag :)

    No.

    Despite being proud of being a citizen of the UK and equally proud of being a resident of Wales and also a very patriotic person.

    I will stand and attempt to sing the UK National Anthem, I stand for the Welsh anthem but would not even try to do a 'John Redwood.'

    Why I don't I'm not sure.

    St George flag, but not the Union flag.
    Along with a FUN flag and RVOC owners club flag.
    Only at shows though....makes it easier to find your van after a skinfull in the entertainment tents.

    I don't fly a flag on a pole but I do collect small flags on our travels which are usually on the dashboard. image.jpg

    No, you'd be OK as long as your flag was at least 6m from any other flag (y)

    Don't have a flag but small saltire stickers front and back. went down well in France as I heard quite a few different nationalities/continental types remark along the lines of "They're OK they're Scottish, they voted to stay in"

    Despite that one passer by in a posh English accent suggested that i would be a happy Englishman after the football result of the previous evening. I politely pointed out the error of his ways, and he immediately claimed to be Welsh. Obviously a big fearty.

    Given that half the continent is dominated by folks totally incapable of making their minds up about what nationality they are:-

    • Belgians can't choose between being French, German or Walloon,
    • Alsace changes nationality every leap year, twice some years
    • the Swiss haven't the faintest idea whether they are German, Italian or French,
    • northern Spain wants independence from the rest,
    • Luxembourg exists somewhere in hyper space
    • the Algarve thinks it is self sufficient
    • Poland has more owners on the log book than Kim Kardashian's knickers (and that's a lot of previous owners)
    • the Germans have only just closed the door on their joint owners, the USSR
    • the Ukraine appears to be half Russian
    • Cyprus doesn't know whether it's national dish is a kebab or a Wimpy
    • And the Chines own half the continent of Europe anyway

    I'm not sure any of them are in any position to remark on either of our own referendums

    Funny thing is, I'm Welsh and pretend to be English. Who cares? I'm British and proud of it, even though I am (almost) dual nationality
