Departments: St George's Day

Volume 458: debated on Monday 12 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what plans her Department has to celebrate St George's Day. (125785)

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport issues the guidance for flying flags on Government buildings. This includes recommending flying the St George's flag on St George's Day, 23 April, on buildings with two or more flag poles, provided it is flown alongside the Union flag with the Union flag in the superior position. Two of DCLG's HQ buildings, Eland House and Ashdown House, have a second flag pole, and the St George's flag will be flown on these to celebrate St George's day.
