As the Royal Wedding day approaches, it's fun to pay respect to the British flag. The Union Jack is such a wonderful icon. I love how the Brits use their flag in fashion, design, and art. It's easy to create an instant cool statement by throwing a Union Jack into your wardrobe or interior design.
It feels wrong to enjoy this beautiful day in Texas while so many suffer in Japan enduring an 8.9 earthquake, it's aftershocks and tsunami. My cousin Ryan and his wife Brandi live in the Kumamoto area of Japan (I hope I have that right.) So, I was very worried about them until I found out that they were safe.

There are many other styles. An interesting source is Japanese Streets.
