David Gardiner.uk is, perhaps unsurprisingly, the personal website of David Gardiner. It focuses mainly on architecture, the built environment, law, culture, flags, politics, localism, British politics and Scotland's cities.

The North American Vexillological Association has, according to semi-objective criteria, ranked the appeal of the various state and provincial flags of the United States and Canada. New Mexico, above is, I believe, an unworthy winner. My personal preferences, from the two nations, are Quebec and Maryland, coming in at third and fourth place respectively.
Updates have been a little thin on the ground of late for reasons obvious to most.
