Flag of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

I send quite alot of UK flag cards so it was nice to receive one back. The flag of the UK combines the flags of three patron saints, St. George of England, St. Andrew of Scotland and St. Patrick of Ireland. The flag is not entirely symmetrical and is sometimes mistakenly flown upside-down!

Irmina also attatched a great stamp featuring Olympic cyclist Laura Trott, who won a gold medal in the omnium track cycling.

Thank you Irmina! :)
