CSS DEMOSThe British Flag - version 3

Date : 5th April 2014

For all modern browsers

This demo is too wide for your mobile screen.
Please view on a tablet or PC.


Just to show how far CSS has come in the last 9 years.

In 2005 I produced this version - FLAG, for which the code was an outer div with forty three nested divs.

In 2007 I produced an updated version - FLAG, for which the code was reduced to an outer div with eleven nested divs.

Now in 2014 this version uses an outer div with just one nested div.

5th April 2014

After a little lateral thinking - updated to use just one <div> <div class="flag"></div>

.. and finally without using ::before and ::after pseudo elements.
