A director at organisation British Future says the rest of the country now needs to 'catch up' after research into 'Englishness' released today found that the West Midlands is the only region where most people can name the date of St George's Day.
Perhaps it's pride in being the birthplace of Shakespeare, maybe it's being at England's geographical heart - people in the West Midlands topped the poll for pride and patriotism in St George.
What we're asking is how can the rest of the country now catch up? The answer has to be doing more to celebrate St George's Day as an inclusive festival of England today that can bring people together.
