The Villa have got the flag for the Holte End ready to unveil on Saturday in the massive European chasing match against Wigan Athletic.

As a support driven initiative, it is great to see that the club responded and helped get this project off the ground, if we’d all been left to it I reckon we’d still be arguing over the design !

In order for this to now work, those in the Holte upper and lower, have got to try to get fully involved because the flag is a whopper and is the biggest flag out of all the Premier League clubs.

Look at the size of it! It takes six men to carry it.



For its debut outing, the flag will be paraded in the Holte Lower.

So what can the fans do? In order for the flag to be unfurled the major thing that is needed is for the fans to be in their seats 10 – 15 minutes before kick off because due to the size/weight there is the need for a pretty full Lower Holte to proceed.

This is what is intended on match day:

Obviously the diagram shows the intended route across the Holte Lower. There will be people there to help co-ordinate this but they are also relying on the fans to make this work.

Looking forward to seeing this unfurled, it is something that has long been talked about amongst fans and now we’ve got it ready to display the Pride Of Birmingham for all to see!
