Three cheers for the blue, white and red

Immigrants who want to become British in future will need to pass more tests to prove their "worth" under citizenship plans proposed by the government. I'd like to recommend as one of those tests they should be able to recognise our nation's flag. And the correct way to fly it:
The government has said it regrets displaying the Union flag upside down at the signing of a trade agreement.

A plastic flag was flown incorrectly for a ceremony involving Gordon Brown, Chinese premier Wen Jiabao and Trade Secretary Lord Mandelson.

And doesn't Flash Gordon, Saviour of the Union, look somewhat, kind of, not really there in that top photo?
