Random Question - Arsenal 89 Rave Flag

Post by Henry Norris 1913 »

Hi guys - long time no post....

I'm sure someone else here would have seen it at some point - anyone remember seeing an Arsenal flag (particularly around the '89 season) with
the massive old skool acid house/rave smiley face on it? maybe my memory deceives me, it may have just been plain union jack with the face on it, but I recall it having 'ARSENAL' printed on it too

hopefully someone has a picture of it they can share - i swear this site or one like had a gallery in it and there was an flag section, i've definitely seen a picture of it on the net before..

anyway - Up The Gunners :barscarf:

- they guy who was nicknamed “acid gooner” - pretty sure the guy that had a Cypriot flag and had his face painted, wore an acid smiley t shirt he wore a red / yellow half and half hat - I’ve seen the flag on and end of season dvd or somewhere ? Possibly even Anfield 89 ?

The Gooner fanzine website used to have a gallery on it (probably still does).

Is this the one you're thinking of? I've seen colour pictures of it as well, but can't seem to find them
