Common Market
Nine Flags Knit

Unisex knit, made up of 9 countries, 100% wool and produced in EU factories. This garment is strong. Cut to original spec so if you like it roomy we recommend you size up.



In the build-up to the EU referendum on 23 June, Common Market has designed a unisex knit inspired by the campaigns of the past. The sweater plays on one Margaret Thatcher wore on the campaign trail in 1975, when even Tory nationalists espoused closer European integration under the slogan ‘Support Your Local Continent.’

The 9 Flags Knit references the positive imagery of the earlier European referendum, when Britain overwhelmingly chose to stay part of Europe. The jacquard knit features the flags of each of the nine countries who made up the Common Market at that time: Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, West Germany, Ireland, Denmark, and the United Kingdom.
