There’s big – and then there’s really really massive.

You won’t be able to miss this enormous Welsh flag, the biggest in the UK, which has been flown in honour of Wales qualifying for the World Cup.

Flying high in Sealand in Flintshire on the Welsh border in north Wales, the flag was erected by Adam Dandy, the CEO of Dandys Topsoil, who owns the flag.

Providing a voiceover to the video, he said: “Well, she’s back up. Flying proudly above the Welsh-English border in Sealand – the biggest flag in Wales. Just in time to celebrate the team’s success getting into the World Cup.”

Family business

The family business which was established in 1826, is located on the Cymru and England border, with their offices in Wales.

“We were disappointed with only having a tiny Welcome to Wales sign on the road and after the Welsh lockdown ended we thought that we should welcome the visitors to Wales back in with the biggest flown flag in the country,” said Adam.

“It’s 55ft in length, and bigger than a double decker bus!”

We think it looks incredible and I’m sure everybody across the English border thinks it looks fantastic too!

And somehow the reporter failed to tell us how big it is.

Under the paragraph heading “Family Business” it reads: ““It’s 55ft in length, and bigger than a double decker bus!”. That’s over 16 metres – if you prefer it that way.

And in modern measurements 55ft is nearly 17m

Sorry BobSnail, I didn’t read your post to the end where you include the measurement in modern. It looks like I was sniffily correcting you. This was not my intent. Apologies again.

The bigger the flag the better. It should be flown at Westminster to remind Boris Johnson’s Tory idiocracy that Britain’s native people are still here and going nowhere!
