Big flag


Recommended Posts

I remember we took one of the large flags to Doncaster one year and it was too big for the stand, some fans had to walk along the front of the gangway (near the advertisment boards at the edge of the pitch) to stretch it out a bit

Wednesdayite used to take one to many matches as well as it being surfed at home it was purchased around 2010 and used for about 5 years until it became really smelly!

That’s the one 


That was fantastic

 

How much would a new one cost?

 

Is it something clubs would still allow?

 

If so let’s get a new one sorted! We can help raise funds for it for sure

That is the more recent one. The flag in the 90s was almost double the size it used to just fit between the posts on the kop and almost rich from back to front. I remember fans surfing on it and sliding off not to mention getting punched a few times on the way down.

Club purchased it and it had sponsors on.

 

It went to Wembley in 93, but would have been too big for most away ends

That one cost about £3,000 , some fans used to complain about it and deliberately rip it (mainly at home games on the kop). Funding a new one has never been an issue . Doubt it would be useable in most League 1 grounds. But if it is something the fans (as awhole) would like to see return we can see what we can do. Get it for the return to the championship in 22/23?

The most recent one is the one used at Wembley for the play off final V Hull. That was in two parts and purchased by the club

Don't remember one at wembley (any pics?), this was the one before the "forward together flag) and was about 2/3 the size of it
