Ok,

the way i'd do it:

aquire some 3mm clear perspex, mark-up & cut it to the existing scratchy that you have. emery & flame polish the edges. drill & countersink the holes.

you'll need a union flag printed in reverse (+ a white backing to make it opaque). place this on the underside of the scratch plate and stanley nice around the edge.

OR

you could take a trip to Denmark street in London & you'll prop find a union jack scratch plate already done.

Hi,
Just for info here is a website of a friend I used to work with. He went from car design to building Guitars - don't know if they are any good but look neat.
