Union Flag Over Tempelhof?

Union Flag over old water tower
For the past week a Union Flag*  has been spotted on top of the Old Water Tower in Tempelhof.  This is the residence of dancer and reporter MissUnderstood Lighthouse who is a British Citizen.

The appearance of this flag has naturally caused anger among certain residents considering the current state of hostilities with Britain.

When asked about the flag Miss Lighthouse did not deny that she has a certain amount of national pride but explained that she had put up the flag in an attempt to reduce the further destruction to Tempelhof by the allies.  She pointed out that the British are incredibly patriotic and that no true blooded Briton would attack in an area where the Union Flag is flying.

If there is any truth in this theory then "Tempelhof in SL" will be among the most likely to benefit as the Old Water Tower is located right next door to our offices.

* The Union Flag is more commonly known as the Union Jack and also as the British Flag.  It has been referred to as the Union Flag here as many believe it should only be referred to as the Union Jack when it is flown from the bows of a warship, while this is considered untrue by experts we have used the term Union Flag (which is definitely right) to avoid such debate.

    Word to the wise... I hung a stripped shirt out of the top floor window of the Unsink to dry.
