How do you feel when you see the Union Jack or the St George flag? Do they stir feelings of patriotism or make you feel uneasy?
A new exhibition at Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery, Flag of Convenience by documentary photographer and artist David Dunnico, looks at how the Union Jack went from being a banner of Empire to a symbol of Mod culture, how it shook off an association with racism and football hooliganism and was rehabilitated with Cool Britannia, Brit Pop and the London Olympics. But after Brexit, what does the Union Jack mean to us? What does it symbolize?
