Flag vote an important step in making City Hall an inclusive place - Sinn Féin Councillor

23 November, 2012


Sinn Féin Councillor Jim McVeigh said the vote in the council’s Strategic and Policy Resources Committee today on the flying of the Union Jack was an important step in making Belfast City Hall an inclusive place.

The West Belfast Councillor said:

“Sinn Féin wants to see a City Hall that is inclusive and welcoming to every citizen and every tradition.

“The Union Jack is associated with one tradition in this city and is often used to exclude and intimidate others.

“The decision of the Strategic and Policy Resources Committee today to end the policy of flying the Union Jack is an important step in making Belfast City Hall an inclusive place.”
