Flagging it up
 The Waterlooville-based, Hampshire Flag Company created embroidered commemorative one-and-a-half-yard Union Flags for each of the three Team GB Winter Olympic Flag Bearers.

The skipper of the Olympic Gold Medal-winning women’s curling team, Eve Muirhead and slalom skier, Dave Ryding, who carried the flag at the opening ceremony, as well as Bruce Mouat, a member of the men’s silver medal-winning team, who was the flag bearer at the closing ceremony last Sunday, have each been presented with these unique and personalised Union Flags as a lasting memory of their Olympic flag-bearing duties.

Hampshire Flag Company, which celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year, has been working closely with the British Olympic Association over the last four years, producing flags, hand wavers and bunting for the Team GB athletes and supporters for both the Beijing Olympics last summer and the recent Winter Olympics.

Sales & Marketing Manager for Hampshire Flag Company, Rod Sessions feels it is a privilege to be able to support our athletes at the highest level.

He said: “We pride ourselves on producing the highest quality flags and signage products and so to be able to supply products for the nation’s elite athletes to display and help boost morale at the Olympics, the highest performance stage, is an absolute honour and something that we, as a company, are very proud to support.”

Rod continued: “We felt it would be a lovely gesture to supply our Flag Bearers with a personalised version of the Union flag that they had carried at the opening and closing ceremonies, as a keepsake of this special time for them. They all performed incredibly well and it is absolutely fantastic that Bruce won a silver medal and Eve scooped that elusive gold medal at her fourth Olympics!”
