Mr. John David Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the official flag specific to Northern Ireland; if it is displayed from his Department's public buildings; and what is his policy towards the use of the Northern Ireland banner.

Mr. Scott

The official flag of Northern Ireland is the Union flag, which is flown from Government buildings in Northern Ireland on the prescribed days. The Government do not regulate use of the Ulster banner.
