Flag-saluting is not one of my preferred ways to get my kids to show their love of country – particularly when they have to be bullied into it.

Some people, too, object to the bit in the top left hand corner, reminding us that we’re still an outpost of Empire, although I’d contend that we’re more an outpost of George’s empire than Liz’s.

Me, I can’t help but love living in a country that has a bird called the Spangled Drongo.

Spangled Drongo for national symbol!
