Really interesting stuff on flags in the NILT survey. One, there is virtually no public support for flags on lamposts. And no ambivalence either. Two, the Union flag is the one by far most favoured for flying outside public buildings at 38%. Next, and a long way behind, is no flag at all on 24%, just ahead of a new neutral flag at 21%. The both tricolour and union flag option runs at 9%, and tricolour only 2%.
