ON A RECENT visit to the Capital I noticed this installation - named "Flag (Union Jack)" by artist and sculptor Frank Benson - from St James's Park, sitting on the outside of the ICA building on the Mall. Although in an area surrounded by examples of the national flag, it stands out due to the subtle distortions, which enhances the natural movement of the flag.
