Last surviving Union Jack from Battle of Trafalgar

Published on October 8th, 2009 | by Admin


The only surviving Union Jack that flew at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 is set to hit the auction block.

Charles Miller, who is selling the historic item on Trafalgar Day, October 21, said: ‘We believe it is the only existing flag that flew at Trafalgar.

‘It is one of the most important, historical items any collector could expect to handle.

‘The damage is probably from bullet holes or splinter fragments, but despite all this it is in amazing condition.

‘You can still even detect the smell that is ingrained within it.’
