'tis but a G-clef recumbent, horizontal :)
I feel a flourish should be more extrovert and involve more criss-cross and compound curves.

For those with an interest in flexible-nib flourishing, have a look at Daniel T. Ames Guide to Self Instruction in Practical and Artistic Penmanship. It's free to download from the IAMPETH site and it's well worth a read as it's full of useful instructions, including details of how to hold a straight penholder fitted with a flexible nib. There are some examples of flourishing exercises at the end of the book.
