'Flag' by John Agard (analysis)

John Agard dictates excerpts of his poem ‘Flag’ and the ‘journey of questions’ the poem invokes. He discusses the symbolism of flags, from a simple piece of cloth to imperialism and asks if humanity waves a flag or if we are controlled by our own ideology. Inspiration for poetry writing and a lack of rules is also considered.
