And you are talking about a point of pride during celebrations. I'm talking everyday. It's so common to walk down the street any day in the spring and summer and see flags on the outside of a house, a flag on a car, someone wearing a shirt that has a flag on it.mtpelepele said:I'd beg to differ. Just a quick google search turns up similar images for other anniversaries, coronations, etc. Frankly, you pretty much never see a flag display of that magnitude in the US, even on the 4th. We tend more to going overboard with the bunting. I'd go so far as to say that a display such as that at Busch is almost uniquely British. No, not everyday British, but definitely leaning more towards their celebration style decor than the US. (oddly enough, in a search for a similar display of American flags, I found one. On Regent Street. In London, in honor of the NFL game being played there!!!)
The intention behind the redecoration was to make Banbury feel "loud" and "festive"—the concept was to have a village in perpetual celebration.warfelg said:And you are talking about a point of pride during celebrations. I'm talking everyday.
