Workers at Wight Shipyard have painted the doors of their Venture Quays building in East Cowes with the cross of St George.

Previously, the Union flag, bosses gave the go-ahead to adapt the paintwork into the England flag.

Workers joined in with a mass singalong of the iconic Three Lions song in front of the building.

The flag is thought to measure around 46m x 12m.


Wight Shipyard CEO, Peter Morton, said:

“Some of the staff came to me and asked if we could change the Union flag to the cross of St George – so I said yes!

“We are in England and we wanted to show our support for England at the World Cup.

“We hope to keep it like it is until at least Sunday (15) – when hopefully football will come home!”

Isle of Wight Radio will be having a singalong to Three Lions at 8.15am tomorrow (Wednesday) which people are invited to join in with at Dodnor Park, Newport!

It will be live on-air and streamed live on Facebook – so come and join us!
