Take it to a seamstress and have a pocket sewn on to cover it. Extra pockets always come in handy.

I'd try freakishly hot - boiling water and a stiff tooth brush.
Also, I'm with you, that's gotta go.

Tried WD40, didn't shift it. I like that hot water plan, that's the next one I'll try...

Have you considered covering it with an Olympics patch or bumper sticker. Surely there are a few leftovers on sale.

How about a good ole' Union Jack iron on? You can even get ones in monochrome (black & silver/grey).

I am going to aim for obliterating it entirely, patching is a last resort...

Tried the hot water and toothbrush, that didn't shift it. Even used some detergent and the rough side of a sponge, that didn't work either.
I then tried the iron with the clean sheet of paper. I got that bag so hot it was steaming, I thought I was going to damage the material.
But that label stayed there.
So, reluctantly, I will give in and paint it.
I guess I am not professional enough to remove this label, sigh...

You'll never get it off cleanly enough to remove the evidence that it was there.

You can remove it with some wicked strong chemicals. You spray from behind but it is very toxic and you need to know if that is water based ink or plastisol. A screen printing shop may be of some assistance. I screen print and that crap is strong once cured.

it will not come off, it is embedded in the nylon fabric and trying to remove it will damage the fabric and weaken it to the point it will rip

After several coats of paint and permanent marker, this is the best I can get it. You can't read the label but you can tell that there is a label on the bag. This is good enough for me, all I wanted was to de-mallninja the bag :p
