It is a celestial blue flag with a white cotized disc in its centre. Upon the
disc are celestial blue clouds and a "rejoicing man" waving arms and having a
face like a crescent. I saw the "rejoicing man" several times this year on
plates. It had always something to do with environment.
Source: I spotted this flag on 2 May 2007 in London-Greenwich.

This is the logo of the Environment Agency. Originally, the Thames Barrier
bore the logo of the defunct Greater London Council (GLC), but the Environment
Agency is now responsible for its operation.
It is one of those interestingly set up public bodies, which is responsible for the protection and improvement of the environment in England (responsible to the United Kingdom Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) and in Wales (responsible to the National Assembly).
