Obviously the red ensign was in response to faster, so right country but wrong county. (The second picture is from the web because none of mine showed an ensign clearly)
There is a statue near the water that commemorates an ancient but little known battle.
Despite being an ancient settlement, there is an American connection which is celebrated by a display in one the buildings.
