The flag of the GĂ©nereux is to go on display after renovation. I was aware that ships' flags were often huge, but was surprised to learn that this one is as big as a tennis court!

Hi Anna

This article is I think a little misleading. The Genereux 's ensign was put on display after conservation at Norwich Castle Museum in 2017. The dates of 29 July -1 October and information quoted in the article correspond with that exhibition.
