The colourful triangular flags in the picture are called 'bunting', and are often seen at street parties and weddings in the UK. The flags have a long history in the UK, though they have seen a particular return to popularity after the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in 2011.

圖中五彩繽紛的三角形彩旗在英語中叫 bunting 旗布。常見於英國街道派對和婚禮聚會。這種小彩旗雖然在英國有多年歷史,不過自2011年威廉和凱特的婚禮之後,小彩旗又重新流行起來了。
