    IMHO, not a good idea.  Just read some of the posts on this forum about difficult neighbours.  Gardens and allotments thrive best when those who tend them are friendly and co-operative.  Why invite conflict by proclaiming one's allegiances?

    No we are all friends and get along well.

    I just thought there maybe some unusual flags ..thats all.

    Why would you want to put up flags?

    Maybe I should run up a black flag of anarchy, or a skull and cross bones over the veg plot. No doubt improve my relationship with the neighbours.  >:)

    This thread has reminded me of a lovely film from the '60s, Morgan - a suitable case for treatment. The closing sequence shows the eponymous anti-hero planting a circular flower bed.  The camera pans skywards, to show that he's arranged the plants to form a hammer and sickle.

    I have a Pirates flag and it started when some of the plot holders children asked what was in my shed and I said that was where The Pirates lived.

    " ? Where is their  flag " they said so I bought one.

    The strong winds destroyed 2 so i now have a 2 x 3 foot one made of nylon on an 8 foot tall pole.

    My plot is at a cross roads on the site and new visitors are told to go up to the flag and turn left or right.

    Its all good fun.  B)
