Crossed Spoons Device

From Plastic Tub

(Redirected from "crossed-spoons" device)

An image of a pair of black and silver crossed spoons, often sewn into the upper right-hand corner of a red flag. Commonly known as the "War Flag," it is used only on rare occasions, notably by the Associationalist Drum and Fife Band. The flag is often emblazoned with the motto "Don't Pike on Me" and is always flown subordinate to the pancake banner.

The origin of the device and the flag is unknown, although the device is known to have existed in 1947 and the flag by at least 1950.

In the aftermath of the vengeance mission resulting from the destruction of Wee-Wee, those arrested were found to be carrying one of these flags.
