Courtesy flag

When you enter a new country it is expected that you fly a courtesy flag of their country from the mast as a gesture of respect.
In all our collections we did not have a Cook Islands flag so decided to make one.
We took a flag from the British Virgin Islands as a base. Then we cut an L shaped section from an old blue T shirt. Diana stitched this on over the red of the old flag.
I made a template out of an old connflake packet and cut 15 stars into it with a Stanley knife.
Then we spray painted the stars onto the flag using the template.
Blue Peter would have been especially proud! ( flag joke!!)
