Is this patriotism gone too far?

GRAHAM Dunn's submitted picture of his house plastered in England flags met with a mixed response from online readers.

Graham went all out to decorate his pad on Penhill Drive and many praised his patriotism, while others questioned his taste and condemned us for encouraging "fanaticism".

Some sent pictures of their own decor, from giant house flags and paint jobs to bedroom shrines and a St George-themed patio. All of which you can see at the bottom of this article.

Graham Dunn's house on Penhill Drive, and below, some other pictures sent in by readers today

So the question is, are you a fan of such ostentatious displays of patriotism? Or do they offend your senses? Vote and feel free to leave a comment, but please be respectful.

Why do the English always have to be British? The other parts of the UK can be nationalistic but we can't because it is deemed as too much and sometimes even racist.

I can't understand how displaying flags no matter the country or colour could possibly come across as racist or offensive??
