Presented by Katy Dye
Post Brexit, Katy has become fascinated with the symbol of the British flag. From Geri Halliwell’s Union Jack dress at the Brit awards, to a tea cosy happily bought in a tourist shop, to union flag murals branded on Shankhill Road in Belfast, it is a symbol the meaning of which is constantly changing. Katy would feel hesitant to wear one, and even more uncomfortable to wave one.
And yet she wonders why? Why does she feel like it’s not alright to be proud of the country she comes from, and what is so wrong with feeling patriotic? With the use of Hello! Magazine, bunting, a £5 note and one cheese grater, join Katy in her exploration to find out what British identity is really made of.
“I felt divided in myself as to what to believe – caught between a nation pulling apart at the seams” Read Katy’s blog here on the making of Flag.
