NCMD Nationalists Get Muddled

The NCMD's webpage's current header:

"Are nation's history...". The Viking ships are the same ones as on the front of the little booklet on the Alfredan period Watlington Hoard "shedding new light on the beginnings of English history".

But, there is no cure for stupidity. Look at the background, marching medieval knights. Though the detail is poor, the various styles of helmet and body armour refer to (different parts of, but not only) the 14th century. Yet they are depicted as carrying a flag, but it's the Second Union Flag with the Cross of St Patrick (NCMD? Passinit about 'istry is yer?).*

* for foreign readers, this flag only came into use for the UK in 1801.
