Bunting is well loved by the British public, presumably this popularity is linked to the positive association that bunting has with celebrations and happy times. At Bunting Queen we believe that no celebration is complete without bunting!
In recent years, through the Jubilee celebrations, the Royal Wedding of William and Kate and the London 2012 Olympics bunting has been instated as a essential of the British party kit.
Bunting is defined as ‘festive decorations made of fabric, plastic, paper or cardboard’ by Wikipedia and typical forms of bunting are listed as:
* strings of colourful triangular flags
* lengths of fabric in the colours of national flags.
There is also a naval reference associated with bunting, the term is used for a collection of flags particularly those on a ship. The officer responsible for raising signals using the flags is known as ‘bunts’ – a term still used today.
At Bunting Queen, bunting comes in a wide variety of colours, materials, shapes and sizes – and we love them all!
