Summer Olympics Tribute :: Union Jack Decor

With the 30th Summer Olympic Games just a couple weeks away, I thought it would be fun to pay tribute to the host country’s flag. Better know as the Union Jack, UK’s national flag has quite a history. Created in 1606, I loved this image the portrays how the famous pattern came to be.

Chairs, pillows and even a refrigerator are some home décor items I found that showcase this this handsome flag. It was hard to narrow down, but here are my faves.

And with that said – go team USA!
