Sir Edward Carson souvenir cup – "One Crown, One Parliament, One Flag - Against my King I do not Fight but for my King and Kingdom's Right".

I spotted this on an auction website recently. The motto is interesting, an articulation of 'conditional loyalty'. Intriguing flag designs and arrangement - paradoxically showing three flags whereas the motto says just one. Below, the framed print of similar design can be seen in The Dark Horse in Cathedral Quarter in Belfast. (the motto features on the statue of John Hampden in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire).
