I have three. Two are of Freddie in his Wembley outfit - on one he is kneeling, and on the other he is standing (in his classic Montreaux statue pose,) and the third one is the four of them sitting (from The Works cover in black and gray and white.)

Does anyone know how many different cloth poster flags were officially issued over the years and what they all looked like?


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

None of them is official.
To my knowledge there are only two official/licenced flags.
1) Innuendo in purple
2) Crest in GH II style

I have two. One of Freddie in kneeling pose at the wembley concert, the other of Freddie in the Mirror Sequence of 'I was born to love you', but the poster has 'Living on My Own' printed on it. Someone didn't know their stuff, obviously.
I also have a black bandana with a Queen GHII style crest on it.


I'll face it with a grin, I'm never giving in... On with the show.

Someone still doesn't obviously! ;-)

That pic was used for the UK sleeve of the 90's reissue of Living on my own! ;-)

I've got the Union Jack one and the purple Innuendo one. I've got that bandana with the crest, too. Unfortunately, I have no where to hang 'em. I need a Queen room.
