In my column in the Jamaica Observer of August 3, I wrote of Jamaican athletes before Independence who, when they won, had to be represented by the flag of another country (England's Union Jack).
I've since been advised by Mark Brooks that the flag, which was flown for Jamaica at that time was known as the Blue Ensign. In the fly corner, it had the Union Jack and in another, the Jamaican Coat of Arms. I'm grateful to Mr Brooks for the information and the photo.
