Usually these would just be Union Jacks, but this looks just as amazing.

The Union flags were actually only up for the Diamond Jubilee, there usually aren't flags like this up on Regent Street at all. Oxford Street is the same, the flags there went up before the Jubilee, they aren't usually there.

The flags of the world really look good though It's exciting to see the city getting ready for the Games

I know that, the Union Jacks were also up for the Royal Wedding last year. I'm just emphasising that this is something new and different having the different flags flying.

Picture emblematic! Sydney did 12 years ago on the structure of the Harbour Bridge and now it is up to the turn of the eighteenth-century London Tower Bridge structure. London 2012 is real ...

London 2012 Velodrome, London

Quote:
Hopkins' completed Velodrome offers a world-class cycling venue for the London 2012 Olympics | Thursday 28 June 2012

The bicycle is an ingenious ergonomic and aerodynamic object which is honed to unrivalled efficiency. Hopkins wanted to apply the same design creativity and engineering rigour that this embodies to our building as a three-dimensional response to the functional requirements of a stadium. The resulting Velodrome contains 6,000 seats in both Olympic and Legacy modes and responds to both contexts in an appropriate manner with minimal transformation.
