Paul Noble, managing director, said: “At Flagmakers we are appalled by the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.

“UK businesses and members of the public have been showing their support for the courageous people of Ukraine in many ways, resulting in a huge surge in demand for the Ukrainian national flag, and as a business with a strong association with these symbols of national identity, we felt that it was important to pass on this support through a donation to assist the humanitarian aid efforts during this distressing time.”
