That is a huge flag, do you think, perhaps, the artist has used his licence here?

Hello David,
The flag is rather smaller, but, still huge, with regards to Paul Kruger's house, I think those lions are still there are they not?
Barnato was born Barnett Isaacs, the name actually came from the contraction of "and Barney too" whilst on stage in the popular music hall theatres of the day!
Kind regards Frank
