    used and abused by Bradley Wiggins, Mods and many more.
    Simple, stylish, evocative, perfect.
    Ditch the Union Flag, go for the Roundel.

    Check out wiki on it: - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAF_roundel

    I particularly like the evolution of the roundel, lots of other cool designs before this one.

    Commentator on the TdeF yesterday called the FRENCH (!!!) roundel, as sported on the side of a Mirage parked at the side of the road, an RAF roundel! Quelle horreur!
