The culture secretary described the flag as "a proud reminder of our history and the ties that bind us".

Go to America or Spain and their flags are everywhere - and that's seen as a sign of patriotism.

But if the UK flags out flag then it's not patriotic - it's racist and xenophobic.

Just like the Scotland, Welsh and Irish flags are patriotic - but England's flag is not.
It comes down to history. Flying the British flag is like flying a swastika sign. Such were the acts of the British empire. Made Britain the favourite country on the planet. Of course the German queen helps Removed
Then go and live elsewhere because the OVERWHELMING majority of British people love their country, are proud of its history including the days of Empire and are sick of the woke culture wars. The silent majority have recently found their voices and those who hate this country will find plenty will challenge them. Removed

They don't love the people of this country, which is what true patriotism is about.

It's rather depressing seeing people knock this down. This flag is about unionism and the benefits that brings. People need to learn the difference between nationalism and patriotism and actually put their frustrations into tackling real issues in this country rather than trying to shame people for having a little national pride.
The real issue of course is that so many 2nd/3rd generation immigrants still resent team GB for perceived colonialism.

It certainly doesn't help that 40% of the population of London weren't born here.

I think in someways it's a good thing, for to long the union Jack and englands flag has been seen as racist. Not sure on how this will ever change but at least from what I think the govenment are finally doing something about it. Even if it's just symbolic at the moment it at least gives hope.
By Englands flag you mean st Georges cross.

It's only Sean as racist by the ignorant few who can't see beyond the guardian and idiot PC go good lefty's .

I’ll tell you what’s patriotic ????
Voting out a political party that are destroying our NHS and Welfare State lining their pockets with Public Money and leading Britain into the abyss

The mainstream media controlled by the establishment managed to convince the electorate that Jeremy Corbyn was a ‘threat to Britain’ But it was Boris Johnson all along ....

Jeremy Corbyn managed to convince the electorate he was a threat to Britain all on his own.

This flag controversy must create opportunity not only flag makers but resurrect other uses why not all male politicians to wear Union Jack ties & female ones Union Jack tops or something in Parliament & definitely at International meetings to show we mean business.

"... to show we mean business"
Arguably one thing Brexit has shown is that we DON'T mean business. In fact, as Boris said, 'f**k business'. But park that. Your own choice of language is apposite to the nub of this issue. It is jingoistic & bellicose. In other words, it smacks of nationalism, rather than patriotism. Sadly, it is evident that many on this HYS are oblivious to the difference.
