Doing it with style


Welcome to my Comments Pages

Please note. I get a few hundred emails a week from visitors asking for help, or posing questions on how to modify my demos to suit their application and I read them all. Unfortunately I only have a limited amount of time to spend answering these questions.

So if I do not reply, please do not be offended, and if I do reply then you are one of the lucky ones.

If you are asking for permission to use any of my demonstration then please email me with your request stu{at}

A masterpiece! I can't believe you didn't need to use transparent borders. I also can't believe this complex flag is even possible with CSS! Stu, you have surpassed all my humble demos.

Very cool!

The diagonal stripes don't quite meet up though, at least in Firefox - in fact, the way they're implemented, you *wouldn't* be able to tell which way up it is...

Fergus, I think that this flag is identical to the one shown on the link

The offset diagonal stripe tells you which side is attached to the flagpole. In this case it will be on the left. If you put the flagpole on the right the flag would be upside down see
for more information.

Wow, Still grasping the essentials of css, but your demos really show what can be done. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Damn that is cool, so cool I feel like using more vulgar words to express the coolness.

Keep it up

I never cease to be astounded with your work. I am a flash/actionscripter because I enjoy the power of it, but lament the difficulty it presents disabled users. I would love to have your grasp of and passion for CSS but instead I will just have to settle for stealing your work. ;)


You should fix his Brazilian bandeira while you are at it.

Nicely done, puts mine to shame (created before Maurício whatever he's called) having said that i didn't spend too much time on it. Interesting method though, different thought approach.

Instead of just a union jack you should fly a red ensign from your ship Stu...

Chris Piek:-
I've played with and use CSS before, but after seeing this flag being done in CSS only, I thought I'll try and do our national flag in CSS. Here's what it look's like (only works in Firefox - for now):

I'm releasing it under the GPL, so feel free to do with the code as you wish.
