I just saw some pictures of recently painted BA planes, wearing the design called "Union Flag" which has been chosen to replace the World Images. I must commit, painted on the Concorde, it really looks nice, but painted on B747s, B767s or others it just looks ridiculous. People cried for the British flag, but people, what is it which they call Union Flag? It is three stripes, not more. It's far from being a British flag, the only thing which comparable to the Union Jack are the colors red and blue. That looks that boring, it looks like BA had to find a quick decision and so they painted something on the plane which is nothing: No World Image, and never a British Flag. Nothing will ever reach the pride of those nice World Images.
I just can't believe that people accept that helpless painting, it really seems even if BA flies a completely white tail people would be satisfied: "The main thing is the World Images are off the planes!" I call that ridiculous.
Before flying such a strange mixture "flag", why doesn't BA paint the real Union Jack on the tail, as Virgin did on the Winglets? That would be ok, even I as an old "World-Image-Lover" would accept it.
What do others think?
