Flags at the proms

The Irish Times - - Comment & Letters -

Sir, – One of your let­ter-writ­ers com­mented on the sea of blue Euro­pean flags on dis­play at the last night of the proms (Septem­ber 14th).

She should be in­formed, how­ever, that the EU flags were handed out by Re­main­ers out­side the venue who were try­ing guer­rilla tac­tics to make a point.

If she had looked closer at the flags from other lo­ca­tions be­ing waved, in­clud­ing the flag of North­ern Ire­land, she would have seen an abun­dance of “union jacks” and other na­tional flags from Bri­tain, be­ly­ing the “One Europe” pro­pa­ganda.

It would ap­pear that while the elite who could af­ford to at­tend the Al­bert Hall were wav­ing the blue, the com­mon peo­ple in the parks had other ideas. – Yours, etc,
