Officials at the Department for Communities and Local Government in London have now corrected the upside-down Yorkshire flag which has been outside their building for several hours in honour of Yorkshire Day. Displaying the emblem the wrong way up can be seen as a sign of distress.
In a statement the staff at the Government office were keen to point out that the flag had been placed on the pole incorrectly by accident and there was no cause for alarm:
Clearly a Lancastrian official got hold of the flag this morning. Normal service has been resumed, and the Yorkshire Flag is now flying proudly alongside the United Kingdom’s Union flag.
