Postby Jens » 01 Mar 2013 13:35

Here a picture of the flags we used on our house in Sulaimaniyah, Kurdish Iraq 1992.
Where stationed there as a UN-Guard for the UNGCI = United Nations Guards Contingent in Iraq from Jun 1991 till Jul 1992.
The mission lasted from 1991 until 2003.

Good photo but can't help thinking that flag of Bornholm could with a nice yellow fimbriation! :D

Fimbriation is a narrow edging of a different colour between two parts of a flag. For example, on the Union Jack there is a narrow fimbriation of white between the central red cross and the blue background. Often fimbriation works to uphold the heraldic tradition of no colour on colour, by using white or yellow (the metals argent and or) to separate colours. Hope that helps!
