Help needed.... - Bartley_baggie - 02-11-2019

[attachment=6]
Bought this on EBay years ago and never been able to find out the significance of the two flags or even where the black green and white originates. 
Anyone know? Cheers

I love collecting pin badges so I'm interested to see if anyone knows.

My best guess, given the combination of a green and white flag and Union Jack, would be some connections to Northern Ireland? But that's just a guess.

Unionist thing possibly?

Don't think so.

Is the stripe on the flag black or very dark blue.

This is the closest match for the latter https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_of_Heist-op-den-Berg.svg

That’s a tad obscure. I’d think a more likely explanation is that it’s the Irish flag and someone’s just plugged the wrong colour in. A sort of togetherness emblem from the 70s.

Black.White & Green is associated with Muslim background or backdrop scenes. With the UJ it suggest UK&WBA&(another country) outside the UK? Is the enamel black.or dark blue?

There is a guy Barry Swash on the West Bromwich Albion memorabilia fb page that deals in all things West Brom, he may have an idea.
