We wish to see the removal of all flags from lampposts on all main public roads and roundabouts especially all paramilitary themed flags supporting terrorist organisations and make it an offense for them to be flown at any time of the year.


Everyone in the north deserves the right to live in peace and harmony in this region without feeling intimidated by any flags from any side of the house. It would not be tolerated in any other region of the UK

Thank you for your support, Kevin Meehan from Dungannon,

    As I am of wholly Irish decent and just think it will help (slightly) ease any current tensions between north and Southern Ireland.

  • on 02 Jul 2021

    The flags are offensive, inappropriate and needlessly divisive; further encouraging hostile feelings.

    Flags should no more have a right to display in the public space than religious symbols.
