Not Their Cross to Bear

|

Britain's chief inspector of prisons has told guards at Wakefield prison not to wear unauthorized pins. "We were concerned to see a number of staff wearing a flag of St. George tie pin," wrote Anne Owers. She added that St. George's Cross could be "misinterpreted" as a racist symbol. St. George is the patron saint of England, and St. George's Cross is the national flag of England.
