Can anyone tell me the name of the flag on top of Southwark Cathdral?
It's orange and yellow, with a vertical and horizontal line of diamonds.

This is the only religious beilding I have ever seen flying a flag other than the St George's cross or the Union Flag and all my attempts at identifying the flag have proved futile.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

The emblem of the diocese? As illustrated in the top left hand corner of the website?

It's the coat of arms of the Cathedral, awarded in the early 1900s when an Act of Parliament created the new Diocese of Southwark and made what was then St. Saviour's, the "Cathedral of Southwark".

As Mapmaker says, if you go to the Cathedral's website - the coat of arms is in the top left hand corner.

Thanks for the info.

Regretfully I can't access the website from work. Religious Sites are restricted :( But I'm glad I now know what it is.

Guess it's to stop people looking at radical fundamentalist stuff, but everything else gets tarred with the same brush.

We are also not allowed to look at shopping, entertainment or sex sites, to name but a few. So it's not just a clampdown on religion.

Still harsh though :(

sounds entirely reasonable to me. In fact it makes as much sense as censoring porn.

Trying not to go too off topic, but surely censorship of porn has the same problems as censoring all religions. Where do you draw the line?

Obviously things like pics of young kids have no place online and should be censored.

But what about an underwear company trying to advertise it's products? Would that be considered porn?

Even pictures of womens ankles are considered erotic in some cultures.
Should the Clarkes Shoes website be censored?

I know I'm stating the extremes, but I'm still annoyed I can't look at Southwark Cathedral's website!

I wasn't being anti-censorship. Of course there are extremes that need to be ruled against as you pointed out. But I should imagine that religion causes more trouble in the world than porn. When I think of some of the scary conversations that go on in the office I find myself in I think it's no wonder that some places block religious sites. I've just been and had a look at http://www.god.com and it's nuts.

I should stop before I develop a full blown rant. Apologies.

at work here, I'm not supposed to look at websites that are not work related.
so basically any websites with large quantities of flesh colour are not allowed, but the browser doesn't actually stop me looking at them. I suspect that it is logged somewhere in IT dept.

I haven't had a warning letter yet, but it wouldn't surprise me if I got one.

I'm also not suppose to use the internet if if interferes with my normal work practice, and is detrimental to the company work/production/output rates.

sensible I know, but when the software hangs, I end up looking at this forum.
