This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Petition The EU flag be flown from parliament on alternate days with the Union Flag.

This petition grows out of national frustration with the referendum, and at how various governments, over the decades, have failed to promote the benefits of the EU to the public at large.

More details

Flags are matters of high symbolic importance. In most EU member states, the EU flag is routinely flown alongside the national flag. This practice should have been instituted in the UK long ago.
The most prominent flagstaff in the land is that on Parliament itself. For practical reasons it may not be possible to hoist two, thus the proposal is for flying the UK and EU flags on alternate days.
