Flying the flag for the Old Kent Road

OKR - Flags.gif

In 1969 the long established marquee, banner and flag sellers John Edgington, just before being pushed aside by the Bricklayers Arms Flyover, displayed maritime signal flags reading; 'Am coming down. Making way for flyover'. 

Inspired by this wonderful incident, the mighty London chandler Alasdair Flint has helped us figure out the two flags needed to shout out WE ARE NOT NOTHING!

We hope to see the whole of the Old Kent Road flying these flags as a sign of unity and defiance against clumsy plans for regeneration.
