    Default Saints flag design

    To celebrate Redvee’s 16th Birthday, we want ideas from Saints fans to design a new Saints flag to hang at the back of the West Stand.

    Thanks to the club’s generosity in supplying the cables that are sited above the back of the terrace, we have opportunity to show our support for the team with the numerous flags and banners that have been bought over the years.

    We want you to send us your flag designs via Facebook, Twitter or on the Redvee forum - the design picked will be the one chosen for us to fund raise for, and hopefully we will will raise enough for it to be professionally made at a size of 12ft x 7ft by Barmy Flags and fully embroidered - this is the company responsible for the Redvee, Gerard Songsters and numerous Funbus flags that have stood the test of time, with some now close to 20 years old and still looking as good as the day they arrived.


    How to enter:
    Send us your ideas via Facebook, Twitter or on the Redvee Forum.

    Donations can be made here:
    https://paypal.me/pools/c/8djDHEb37B

    Any excess donations above the required amount will be given to the club to support the Academy tour of Australia.

    The only rule to follow is that it should be club specific rather than any individual, to ensure that it is a timeless piece that will still be just as relevant 20 years from now.

    So get your thinking caps on - we’ve got some creative geniuses out there, we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    I'm not very artisty so won't even attempt to create one but maybe someone could design a flag with "oh St. Helens rugby" at the top and, "come thrill me again" at the bottom and something artisty in the middle like a man (not a specific player) diving over the try line but the redvee is visible on the shirt?

    I await your criticism

    Using a Dutch flag:

    ST. HELENS R.F.C across the top
    R.V 2003 through the middle with this in the middle, slightly changed
    ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES across the bottom (younger posters google the film).

    I think that's decent.

    My idea would be: one one side a mosaic of the Saints away crowd on a terrace. Red smoke rising above them and airborne plastic pint glasses with liquid flying out of them.

    Then on the other, a fan holding up his ticket for his allocated seat for Good Friday.

    I'll get my coat

    You’ve got to show us a pic mate!! :-)

    I reckon we’re looking at around £700 for the style we need. With it being placed above the West, it needs to be tough enough to withstand the elements. A few of the cheaper flags are looking sketchy now after only a year or two

    Is there a website where you can design a flag?

    My idea would be a flag with all the jerseys we’ve had over the years... or one with all of our trophies on

    How difficult would it be to have something with all the players names on it, like the shirt they did a few years back?

    Edit...I guess that would date quite quickly?

    I'll get my coat!

    One with just my name in Black on a White background would be better. I deserve it more than anything mentioned so far. I've been the life and soul of St Helens RLFC forums for decades now. Without me, I'm not sure we'd even have the new ground.

    That'll be £700 please.

    White flag with red writing saying “St Helens born and led” with the best St Helens born captains of the club in silhouette on there.

    I understand the St.Helens born theory Dos, but to leave out Joynt & Sculthorpe would be criminal as they were two of the best and in Joynty`s case most successful captains.

    As we change jerseys every year it would be out of date next year.

    Also we are known by our RED V.

    How about one with Knowsley Road on it?

    What about “Saints, The Original and Perennial Cheats” along with pictures of O’loughlin clotheslining a young kid, Terry Newton breaking Longy’s Jaw and Gentle Ben punching a prone Hohaia?

    Uncle Brian can paint it using the finger paints he got for Xmas from the kids at the Wigan academy, and that other strange character Purple Aki can help him hang it up.

    Needs blending better, maybe less text at the bottom (dump “lighting up the league” and make “perennial entertainers” bigger?

    You get the idea!!!

    I see where you're going, but IMO you need to drop the 'perennial' thing. 'You know who' has enough exposure on here as it is!
    I'd also drop the 'Redvee' text to the bottom. It's important to keep it, but as it stands, it looks like Redvee is the team we support.
    Having said all that, I quite like it.

    I asked earlier if it was difficult to include the players names on a design, like the shirt we did a couple of years back.
    If it's easy enough, then maybe include these to create the large 'V'?
