icWales - Warning to protesters from Welsh flagmaker

icWales - Warning to protesters from Welsh flagmaker: "A WELSH flagmaker last night issued an urgent safety warning to Muslims who are buying up his Danish flags to torch in cartoon protests.
Orders for the Danish national red and white flag began flooding in to Swansea-based business Mr Flag as soon as the Prophet Muhammad caricatures featured in a Danish newspaper were reprinted in Europe.
'We have experienced a rise in orders for the Danish colours,' owner Robin Ashburner confirmed.

Buy Flag. Buy Flags. Largest range. Buy flag. Buy flags.

But he warned, 'It has to be pointed out though that a number of modern flags are now made largely of polyester and when they burn they melt. That means if they are whirled around by a protester, his or her fellow protesters could be splashed by flying pieces of burning material. If it got into the eye it could do serious damage so we are about to issue a warning to this effect on our website.'

A wave of anger has swept across the Muslim world at the multi-publication of the controversial cartoons. Danish and other European flags have been burnt as far afield as Paris, London, Indonesia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Gaza and the West Bank in protest. "

England flag brings huge sales to Welsh factory. - AberdareOnline: "STAFF at a Welsh factory are finally flagging after scoring a huge sales bonanza thanks to the Euro 2004 football tournament.

Workers at the Swansea Enterprise Zone base of MrFlag.Com have been working flat out to produce St George flags plus banners for fans of the 15 other nations involved in the Portugal tournament.

Spokesman Robin Ashburner said at the Clarion Court factory yesterday, 'Orders have gone through the roof in the past fortnight.
'It's fair to say our staff are really tired out now after working so hard over the past fortnight in what has been very warm weather.
'Orders for bunting and flags for the tournament started earlier this year with businesses, particularly pubs across England who will be showing the games live, planning ahead."
