The Flag of Freedom cutting.pdf (click to open)

errata the above newspaper cutting has a number of factual errors. The Skelmanthorpe Flag could not have been displayed at Almondbury Bank on August 2nd 1819 as the banner was not produced until November 1819. This meeting on August 2nd also pre dates the "Peterloo" massacre which is one of the themes of the flag. Also the flag is not a Chartist standard as it pre dates Chartism by 30 years. It was however borrowed by the Chartists at later dates.
