The Techno Rose of Blighty is the debut album by British electronica group Fluke, first released in 1991.

The name is based upon Blighty, being slang for Great Britain; and parodies the title of the song "The Yellow Rose of Texas"; it is also ironic as the album is not particularly techno based. The album was re-released as LP edition in 1993 at Circa Records with bonus tracks.
