United Kingdom: Flag and Map T-Shirts & Other Gifts
The United Kingdom is home to over 60 million people, while many British expats live in other parts of the world, most notably in Australia, Spain, the USA and Canada. FlagAndMap products with UK designs make perfect gifts for people with a British connection. They feature the flag and map of the UK along with other motifs. The flag of the United Kingdom was adopted on Jan 1, 1801. Its design is a complex combination of red and white crosses on white and blue backgrounds representing constituent parts of the nation. The United Kingdom includes Great Britain and the northeastern part of Ireland, both islands being situated to the northwest of continental Europe. The UK map outline is easily recognized and combines well with the primary colors of the flag to create bold and iconic designs for British national mementos.
Many FlagAndMap products come in a choice of styles and colors - T-shirts, for example, are available in hundreds of style/color combinations for men, women and kids. Customers have the option to customize any product online with their own text or images at no extra cost. You can easily create personalized 'Best of British' t-shirts for friends and family or special event mugs with a British theme for your group or organization. The full United Kingdom product range is regularly added to with recent additions including the following:

What we say about the UK: (external links open a new window)
Information: The Wikipedia United Kingdom page is packed with information but if you're planning to visit, the Wikitravel guide for the UK will be a good resource to delve into or perhaps the Visit Britain official tourist agency site.
Blogs: There's interesting reading for tourists in Louise Lambert's Snapshots of Britain and a take on the smaller details of a UK lifestyle in Vivatramp by creative writer Bee who lives in the southwest. Since we're fans of maps we just have to mention the Ordnance Survey Blog.
Music: British music is so varied and globally successful that highlighting one or two musicians would be quite arbitrary. So here is an arbitrary selection of British electronica that we like - Blue Lines by Massive Attack, Big Calm by Morcheeba and Leftism by Leftfield.
