I do wonder what this anti Union Flag ism is about.

It doesn't half get the KWs into a tizzy wizz!

National flags have always been a political symbol. Especially your Hammer and Sickle or the International Brigades  three cornered star.

All immigrants cannot be allowed to forget our history that is what our Union Jack represents.

Flag nonce.

The current political parties, one in particular but not exclusively obsession with the Union flag is normal for the U.K.? It’s not, is it?

 “National flags are assumed to be imbued with psychological meaning, paramount in conceptually representing the nation’s core values, condensing the history and memories associated with one’s nation, and embodying what the nation stands for (e.g., Butz, 2009; Schatz & Lavine, 2007). Some even say that the flag represents the soul of a society in terms of symbolic representation of national consciousness”.

If that’s not a definition of political symbolism
The only obsession with the flag is yours.

Hazard a guess you’re the type who says he wants British History taught, but doesn’t want actual British History being taught in these ‘lessons’

I’d shag my flag if I was allowed to take it down from its flagpole

If you come from immigrant parents you have a very different view of the union jack - the flag of the British Empire. 

Give me the flag of St George any day.

I'd agree, if it hadn't been hijacked by so many brain-dead over the years.
I don't feel the decent English have ever truly reclaimed it.
