Flags Of England
The Flag Institute maintains a national registry of United Kingdom flags, the UK Flag Registry. Authority to grant heraldic bearings to individuals and corporations belongs to the sovereign as the fount of all honours, and in England, Northern Ireland and Wales this is delegated to the College of Arms. Local authority flags come within this category when based on the arms granted to that authority. Such a flag is the authority's personal property, representing that authority rather than its area.

“No annual training or muster of soldiery, no celebration with its scarfs and banners, could import into the town a hundredth part of the annual splendor of our October. We have only to set the trees, or let them stand, and Nature will find the colored drapery,flags of all her nations, some of whose private signals hardly the botanist can read,while we walk under the triumphal arches of the elms.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“The New England conscience ... does not stop you from doing what you shouldntit just stops you from enjoying it.”
—Cleveland Amory (b. 1917)
“No doubt I shall go on writing, stumbling across tundras of unmeaning, planting words like bloody flags in my wake. Loose ends, things unrelated, shifts, nightmare journeys, cities arrived at and left, meetings, desertions, betrayals, all manner of unions, adulteries, triumphs, defeats ... these are the facts.”
—Alexander Trocchi (19251983)
