Isle of Man people proud of their independence

The Isle of Man has been independent for many years. They are as friendly people as you would meet in UK.

What is that red flag with three legged symbol?

IOM Flag

You will see many places including shops flying a red flag with a three legged symbol called the triskelian.

This is their national flag.

The three legged symbol means "which ever way it falls it stands". This means IOM people are resilient in their independence.

We have travelled across from .....

Apparently some IOM people consider they are not part of the "mainland" of Great Britain because they have their own democratic parliament and laws.

You will likely hear me diplomatically say I "have travelled across from" England.
