This particular depiction of the Banner of the Five Wounds is highly significant. Not only is it the banner which is carried at the front of some LMS Martyrs Pilgrimages in England, but really it is the Banner of Sir Thomas Constable of West Rasen, Lincolnshire, and the original is in Arundel Castle.
Why is it significant? Well, Sir Thomas Constable was present at the LINCOLNSHIRE RISING, and this started at Louth in Lincolnshire and then became the PILGRIMAGE OF GRACE in Yorkshire. We know for a fact that it was the official banner of the Pilgrimage of Grace. These incidences where the only example (to my knowledge) of a place rising up against the reformation.
Move forward 500 years and we just had what is known as the ‘Second Lincolnshire Rising’… This also started in Louth (before Summorum Pontificum). The whole of Lincolnshire has been described as ‘Missionary Territory’ and ‘A Spiritual Desert’ in recent years. A group of us brought the local church back to life, and brought back the Crowning of Mary to Lincolnshire in 3 churches, and also introduced other traditions and started talking about the faith locally to people again. From this came the resurgence of the Traditional Latin Rite Mass after Summorum Pontificum.

“These incidences where the only example (to my knowledge) of a place rising up against the reformation.”
There were at least three revolts in different sections of Sweden against the Reformation in the years 1528 and 1543, and there was a violent revolt against the introduction of the Reformation in 1528 by the peasants of the Bernese Oberland (the rural districts of the canton of Bern) in 1528. “Low intensity” resistance to the Reformation in Norway continued for many decades after it was introduced there by the Danish authorities in 1537.
God bless you and all the work you’re doing. We Virginians consider ourselves at least half English, so I’m very sympathetic with your aims and will keep you all in my prayers.
That is good to know William. I did wonder if there was anywhere else that rose up. There isn’t a lot of information out there which is why I made the site above so that it would be remembered on line. That is interesting.
I talk about and display this flag when teaching about the English Catholic resistance to the first round ofcschism with Rome and the Pilgrimage of Grace.
I too would love to have one – until seeing the photo here it never occurred to me that any newly-made ones might be available… Can someone help us know if any are for sale? Hard to tell in the photo, but that one is possibly custom made (probably not within my skill set, or budget for commissioning one).
Rather, when teaching, I display a photograph of one, I should say
