Aircraft name on G-EUUJ in 2006

Back in 2006 I took a photograph of G-EUUJ which had additional "Official Airline England Football Team" decals. The aircraft name for a period of time was "Three Lions". However, when I photographed it (in June 2006) it carried a new name: "Pride of the ??????". I just can't quite make out the last word. Guessing it could be "Nation". I have googled high and low but to no avail. Does anyone have a definitive answer for me?

Courtesy of Airliners.net:

On 2 June 2004 320 G-EUUJ was rolled out wearing the same adapted Union Flag livery as 'UI and also carried the 'Three Lions' name on its nose. This was ammended to 'Pride of the Nation' on 5 June 2006. Here it is with both names and the additional titles and logo:

On 1 October 2006 it made its last flight with this name and the additional titles and badge and was returned to service on 8 October in the standard Union Flag livery.
