Resource summary

Flag
1 Structure
1.1 Patterns and repetition. The poem has a very simple form, five short stanzas. Each starts with a question, followed by an answer.
1.2 In the first four stanzas the answer always begins in the same way, making the reader think again and again about what the ‘piece of cloth’ is and the influence it has.
1.3 The pattern is broken in the final stanza, giving it great impact.
1.4 The second line of the first four stanzas is always the same, with the emphasis particularly on ‘just’… the word which survives into the final stanza to suggest the dangerous ease with which the flag can be claimed.
2 Imagery
2.1 The flag is given almost magical power: it can control men, and ‘will outlive’ them.
3 Rhyme Scheme
3.1 Reinforces the stanza pattern.
3.2 It changes in the final stanza, from aba to abb, highlighting the end.
