Druh England Flag Buckle with Red Strap

With a summer season of spectacular sport on the horizon, Druh Belts & Buckles is encouraging fans to fly the flag and show their support for their country’s sportspeople by wearing one of Druh’s latest national flag buckles.

Amid an array of international sporting events, the UEFA European Football Championship is currently in full swing and the London 2012 Olympics are just around the corner whilst in golf after last week’s US Open, the anticipation and hype is building for the two remaining majors and this year’s Ryder Cup in the U.S.

To celebrate these top sporting events, Druh has launched a selection of national flag buckles to go with its Druh Belts for the countries of England, Scotland, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, USA, Canada, Mexico, South Africa, Australia, South Korea, Japan and Thailand.

“By wearing a Druh flag buckle, we can all show our support for our favourite sportsperson or our patriotism for our country over the summer whichever sport you follow,” comments Simon Hurd, founder of Druh Belts & Buckles. “Personally I will make sure that I am wearing an English flag buckle in support of Lee Westwood in the upcoming majors, especially during The Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St Annes where I would dearly love to see an Englishman lift the Claret Jug.”

Druh Belts & Buckles are favoured by numerous golf pros and have quickly established themselves as the number one belt on tour. We can therefore expect to see a number of pros themselves wearing a Druh flag buckle of their country in their own patriotic gesture.

The enamel flag buckles are all easily interchangeable with Druh’s unique range of stylish, handmade leather and snakeskin belts and are available in hues that will compliment the various colours of the national flags.

There will be no trouble in matching the new buckles with the Druh belt range as it comes in ten different water snakeskins, ranging from turquoise to pink and 15 leathers in different embossed styles, from crocodile to ostrich effect. Already the Druh designs in classic black and browns and funky pastels and metallics are spreading like wildfire amongst the pros. Indeed Westwood is a global brand ambassador for Druh alongside Ireland’s Paul McGinley, Dane Thomas Bjorn andThailand’s Thongchai Jaidee.

The flag buckles can be easily swapped with Druh’s other styles that are made from brushed nickel, polished silver or gold.

All the flag buckles are now available at which allows golfers to choose their country flag and matching belt combination. The Druh Flag Buckles with a strap retail at US$137/UK£88 with the Druh Flag Buckles coming out at just US$36/UK£23.

Other Druh Belts retail at US$200/UK£125 for snakeskin and US$125/UK£79 for leather and guarantees that the snakes used in production are not a protected species.
