It’s a sight we see on a daily basis, but can you spot when there’s something amiss with the Union Flag? To celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, one leading textiles firm has posted a brand new brainteaser involving the Union Jack. The Platinum Jubilee brainteaser tasks players with spotting which flag has an extra stripe. It sounds easy, but roughly 65% of people aren’t able to solve it. Take a look at the image below. Can you spot the flag with an extra stripe?
Posted by Prestigious Textiles, the fabric is available for the June bank holiday celebrations, inspiring themed tablecloths, bunting, cushions and accessories for parties.
Indeed, only 12% of people in the UK are said to have found the extra stripe within 10 minutes, while nearly a quarter (23%) solved the puzzle in under 30 minutes.
“After creating the brainteasers for some fun on social media, we’ve found that the difficulty level has turned it into a real talking point!” explains Nicola Brumfitt of Prestigious Textiles.
“We hope people can challenge their friends to find the added stripe as quickly as possible and that the Union Jack design inspires hosts to create the ultimate setting for the Jubilee.”
