BMI Lurker (and flag) at the last night of the Proms

Slightly OT but in the spirit of all things Great British I noticed that while the camera's panned across the audience in the encore of Land and Hope and Glory amongst the sea of Union Jacks, a solitary BMI flag...

Anyone here want to own up ?

In some ways quite appropriate for it to appear during Land of Hope and Glory....

sorry it's a wee bit on the pixellated side, but video encoding generally has trouble with things like large numbers of people waving flags...

So who "borrowed" the flag from the Hall or LHR then?

baby would have been very fitting, as tonight was the last night before the final day of operations.

Indeed, RIP BMI Baby, my thoughts are with the staff and hope that they find other jobs
