Discussion about the flag

The Bristol 'Evening Post', the local evening newspaper, last night (Saturday 22 September 2007) carried a reader's letter headlined 'Help us to fly flag for the city wherever we are'. It's available on the newspaper's website. I find it interesting that there is this increasing awareness of the interest in flying a local/county/regional flag which seems to be spreading from the adjacent English areas which already have flags - Cornwall in the south-west and Northumbria in the north-east. The particular suggestion here - a "flag displaying the city crest" - is problematic. A banner of arms exists and is flown by the City Council in two places. Whether that could or should be made more widely available is debateable.
