Union Flag

Anyone know what, if any, are the rules about flying the Union Flag. Can it be flown by anyone at any time?
Not this Saturday by the way.

Yep.

As long as it doesn't have any words on it.

I had one flying outside our house for years. Occasionally I would fly the St George's cross but then my neighbour's all assumed I was in the BNP.

Sorry thought you meant at see!!


No officially you are not permitted to fly it!

"Civilian use is permitted on land, but non-naval/military use at sea is prohibited. Unauthorised use of the flag in the 17th Century to avoid paying harbour duties – a privilege restricted to naval ships – caused James' successor, Charles I, to order that use of the flag on naval vessels be restricted to His Majesty's ships "upon pain of Our high displeasure."[citation needed] It remains a criminal offence under the Merchant Shipping (Registration, etc.) "
