Identifying England

It started with a newspaper article: Rochdale taxi drivers flying St. George’s flags on their cabs, defying the local council’s ruling. They risked losing their licences and their livelihood I made assumptions about the cabbies The two pictured were Saifur Rahman, and Azad Hussain.

I was out of touch.

Can we speculate what message is intended to be sent to the viewer, each identifying ‘England’, in their own way? Or do our assumptions say more about ourselves?
