Recently, there has been a renaissance of what could be called as cool vintage Britannia. The Union Jack (and adaptations on the flag) is every where at the moment. From fashion to furnishings you can’t miss it. In the past, cool Britannia was phrased coined by the media in the mid to late nineties to “describe the contemporary culture of the United Kingdom”1, finding relevance in everything from our popular music (such as Oasis, Blur and the Spice Girls) to our politics with the advent of New Labour. It was cool to be British.
Or what about this very pretty greetings card from Clintons, which I picked up this week.
