    About This Piece

    Here we have a professionally framed Sex Pistols God Save the Queen promotional flag on printed silk designed by the artist Jamie Reid in 1977.

    The Sex Pistols were a rock group that essentially created the British punk movement of the late 1970s. The original band consisted of 4 members; Johnny Rotten (John Lydon), Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock – eventually, bassist Sid Vicious (John Simon Ritchie) also joined the band. Their song, “God Save the Queen,” symbolised the United Kingdom’s social and political turmoil.

    The artist Jamie Reid is best known for producing the iconic cover art for the Sex Pistols’ debut album Never Mind the Bollocks – which was voted number one for the album cover of all time – Here’s the Sex Pistols (1977), as well as the band’s singles “Anarchy in the U.K.” (1976) and “God Save the Queen” (1977), the latter based on a Cecil Beaton portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Jamie Reid helped shape the visual identity of the British punk movement with his décollage-style. His work is memorable due to his combination of iconic pop culture with letters cut from newspaper headlines arranged like ransom notes.
