The Return of Patriotic Decor & Flags Galore

From tongue-in-cheek patriotism and patriotic flags, to classy and sophisticated references, there are many ways you can show your love for your nation. We think that in the past, patriotism in interiors got a bit of a bad rap. Often seen as outdated, cheesy or gauche, flying the flag fell out of fashion as fast as it came in. But patriotic décor is making a comeback in 2023, and we can’t wait to see how this trend unfolds.

With our patriotic wall murals, you can combine cottage elegance with vintage flags, or city chic with the colours of your country. On top of that, you can also browse our wide collection of city skyline photography murals, countryside landscapes and other imagery that best represents your corner of the world.

It doesn’t matter whether you want to be patriotic to your own country, or you want to celebrate your favourite travel destination either, as internationalism is something that should be celebrated no matter where you live. True global citizens consider themselves to be at home in any country – so take your pick!

Whatever you do, patriotic wallpaper is a fun way of personalising your space so that it means something special to you and your family. Here are some of the ways to style your home in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and more!

Iconic Union Jack Wallpaper

There’s something very iconic about the Union Jack, not just for Brits, but also for the Anglophile fans out there. Anglophiles are known for their love of all things GB – including the late Queen Elizabeth II (and now King Charles), famous musicians and bands, British language and colloquialisms, and all things related to UK life and culture.

For a while, the vintage Union Jack was a common feature in a lot of homes (remember Made In Chelsea’s Ollie Locke?). And let’s not forget British designer, Vivienne Westwood’s distressed flag collection from the 90s – and that famous dress worn by Geri from The Spice Girls! It’s long been an iconic feature in both interiors and fashion. And now we’re going to see this vintage flag trend make a bit of a comeback.

Or if you prefer something a little more abstract, this ‘Michael Mullen British Invasion’ mural can transform any space into a GB shrine.

We think it’s perfect for a guest bedroom, a music or entertainment room, a den, or even a kid’s bedroom. Style with light woods and a simple colour palette to let the mural dazzle in all its glory.

USA Patriotic Décor

When it comes to patriotism, no-one does it quite like the Americans. Patriotic décor is more than just a design trend in the USA. For a lot of families, the colours of red, white and blue are engrained into their way of life – and this includes in their homes.

But what we love about US patriotic interiors is the way it can move across a whole range of interior design styles. Think big country mansions and shabby chic homes, all the way to New York City apartments. Whether you have a beach house, a townhouse, a condo, or you live on a ranch, the American flag can elevate your space and help you personalise your castle.

Or if flags isn’t your thing, this illustrated ‘Street in New York City’ wallpaper is a fantastic alternative. It’s ideal for open-plan living spaces, or a feature wall in a home office. It’s also the perfect match for minimalist interiors, giving you an easy way to add interest and intrigue to an otherwise blank wall.

The Colours of Canada

Adding patriotic décor to your home is easy if you live in Canada, and the colour red can instantly bring warmth to your home. The maple leaf is also linked to fall, which inspires a whole spectrum of golden tones to add to your interiors.

This ‘Canadian Flag Mural’ is just the start. You can create texture through layers using red fabrics and upholstery, as well as contrasting creams and off-whites. Or if you prefer to celebrate Canada’s great outdoors, we also have a range of the country’s best natural landscapes.

In our landscapes collection, you’ll find everything from lake views at Banff National Park, photograph murals of Niagara Falls, and scenic wallpaper from the Rocky Mountains.

Australian Cities and Landmarks

If you want to create patriotic interior design for your home in Australia, photo murals are the way. Home to some of the most incredible and iconic landmarks, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to designing that feature wall.

Of course, it isn’t just for those who live Down Under to embrace our photo landscape murals. For those who love travelling and have fond memories visiting Australia, cityscapes can be a fantastic option in the home. They look great in home offices, in open-plan kitchens, and in communal areas like the living room. They’re also an easy way of adding colour and creating a talking point when travel-loving guests are over.

Explore our range of Sydney wall murals, Melbourne wall murals, Brisbane wall murals, and Perth wall murals. Alternatively, a flag mural could be a bold and playful way of adding a touch of patriotism to your living room or another communal zone.

Italian Countryside Murals

If you’re passionate about Italy (because you live there or enjoy travelling there), patriotic décor is made easy with our huge range of wallpaper murals. As well as stunning imagery of the Italian countryside, we also have city photo murals – including a large collection of Rome wallpaper.

Known for its rolling hills, endless rows of vineyards, amazing food and wine regions, dazzling lakes, and spectacular architecture, there’s just so much to fall in love in Italy. Often referred to as the ‘Cradle of Civilisation’, Italy’s capital is one of the most romantic places in the world. And all of the 20 administrative regions have something unique to offer too. So it’s no wonder Italians are amongst the most patriotic and proud people on the planet.
