Vexillatious Question

Many thanks for all your sackfuls of entries to my Find A Flag For Fannit competition! Special appreciation goes to regular contributors Mark, Dick, Millicent, and Mr Dickens of Broadstairs. Er, actually they were the only people who entered.

So, the competition is now closed, and the panel of judges (me) have made their final decision. And the winner is... [drum roll] Dick! I've had my team of highly trained graphic designers cast their glass eyes over your design, and they've made some alterations. Here's the final look:

The background colours have been changed to reflect our glorious sandy beaches, chalk cliffs and clear blue skies, whilst retaining your motif of the North Foreland lighthouse surrounded by the sand and grassy tussocks of Joss Bay. Oh, and following an unaccustomed attack of modesty, I asked them to keep my physog off it. I look forward to seeing the flag flying proudly from all our public buildings, and engraved into the walls of Thanet's toilet cubicles, in the very near future.

Congratulations Dick, and your bottle of Dom(estos) is chilling here at the old cliff top mansion ready for you take advantage of at your convenience!

A purple lipstick atop a packet of pork-scratchings eh. (isn't it?)

West Cliff I think that may be a phallacy

hmmm.. I'm itching to put a few crabs around the light house, as a nod to our bustling seafood industry.

Thank you, thank you ECR. First of all I'd like to thank my Agent without who's support I would never have come so far in this competition, the Production crew, Supporting cast and finally my Probation Officer who doodled the original design whilst dunking his Jaffa Cake in my Cuppa Soup. Leave the Dom chilling in the 2nd cistern of the old pulic conveniences below the Eastcliff will you dear boy, I have some work there later to do.

It was a fix - copying TDC tactics?

Will one of the flags soon be flying on the Eastcliff flagpole? Waste of money so far as you seldom see anything up there.
