The people of England were very proud of the success of the London Olympics this summer and are now there are many more flags on display around the country.
A giant Union Jack was part of the closing ceremony for the Olympics. It covered the floor of the stadium and was a modern version of our traditional flag. It was designed and made by famous modern british artist, Damien Hirst, using a technique called Spin Art.
We made our own spin art union jacks using a salad spinner! Thanks to Anny for hunting one down for us. We have put our flags up on the wall in our classroom- come and have a look.
