One of the largest flags in the world, that once graced the bow of the Queen Mary during WW2, is being sold by auctioneer Charles Miller in London.<br />
<br />
At 36 feet by 17, the huge blue ensign is the size of a double decker bus, and was flown by the famous liner when she served as a troopship during the war.<br />

The Queen Mary held the prestigious Blue Riband for the fastest Atlantic crossing from 1936 to 1952, and now is run as a hotel in Long Beach, California.
