    I didn't know you needed planning permission to fly a flag. ridiculous. I could understand it if it was red with a white circle in the middle, with a black swastika in the middle of that, but any other flag, be it a national flag or a gay pride flag? stupid.

    IIRC, you only need planning permission if the flag overhangs the street. If the pole goes straight up from the roof, that's OK, but if the pole sticks out at the front of the building and there's a chance that it could interfere with high vehicles or telecoms wires, the council needs to monitor the height & sticky-out-ness. Seems reasonable. This looks like another of those only report half of the story" stories."

    ah, I see. I suppose it makes sense if it's a sticky-out one thenwhat if it's just pinned to the inside of the windows, could they use them then?

    there's been a gay flag for years.I'm surprised most people don't know this.The rainbow flag has been the gay pride symbol for decadesUse of the rainbow flag by the gay community began in 1978 when it first appeared in the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade. Borrowing symbolism from the hippie movement and black civil rights groups, San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker designed the rainbow flag in response to a need for a symbol that could be used year after year. Baker and thirty volunteers hand-stitched and hand-dyed two huge prototype flags for the parade. The flags had eight stripes, each color representing a component of the community: hot pink for sex, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sun, green for nature, turquoise for art, indigo for harmony, and violet for spirit. "from here"

    Surely the title of this thread should be, 'One rule for one - and the same for the other'Haven't you heard? It's illegal to display an allegance to any cause, organisation, country or religion without prior written consent from Tony Blair.
