Ecky Thump masters

In the episode Kung-fu Kapers, Bill Oddie reveals his mastery of the ancient Lancastrian martial art of Ecky Thump, which involves hitting people on the head with a black pudding. Towards the end of the programme he leads a revolt of Ecky Thump masters aimed at overthrowing parliament. They are seen marching under a red flag featuring a greyish-brown cloth cap underneath which are two crossed black puddings.

This still from the episode shows the flag.
