this is an anarchist union jack. it’s something that jonesy from pondlife mcs and i put together for a laugh one day feckin around on the computer. i see it not as a replacement flag, more of a representation of where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going.

the union jack design represents our past, the plunder and slavery of empire.

the more observant will notice that the flag is upside down, which traditionally represents a distress signal. this is the legacy of empire: division and environmental destruction.

the red, black and green colours come from some of the flags at a 1998 reclaim the streets party in london when a section of the m41 was turned into a highly illegal and colourful environmental protest. red represents socialism, black anarchism and green environmental politics. maybe in there somewhere are the seeds of things that may prove part of our liberation in the future.

or maybe not.

either way, i’m off to bonnie scotland tomorrow to get stuck in and write the main body of this blog.

let’s GO!!!!!!!!!
