I seem to have overlooked the recent creation of a flag for the new United Kingdom Supreme Court, which is to be regularly flown at their building on Parliament Square - the former Middlesex Guildhall. The flag incorporates the elements of the Supreme Court's emblem: floral designs of the four constituent parts of the UK, and an omega symbol implying finality, with the crown of the Sovereign - the font of justice in Britain - offset in the corner.
