When we finally exit seems logical to remove European flag perhaps

When Scotland leaves, perhaps the Union Flag will have to also be removed, to be replaced with the St George's Cross.

Or maybe a new flag will be created, this time incorporating elements of the previously ignored Ulster and Wales (to make up for the removal of the St Andrew's Cross)...

Unless Ulster leaves as well...

One third of Ulster left nearly 100 years ago.

The rest of Ulster is represented in the Union Flag by the St. Patrick's cross.

And if London becomes a separate city state as some are suggesting we could leave up the EU flag and the Union flag and just cut a big hole in the middle of it

I liked the recommendation to keep it up as we'll still be members of the Council of Europe and it's their flag too...

Reminds me of when the GLC was disbanded, I was an apprentice to a man who can only be described as collateral damage from the 60s.

The City of London already has its own flag - the cross of St George with the sword of St Paul in the upper left corner. It looks pretty cool and we could just adopt that for all of London. Job done!

The flag of the City?! Wouldnt that just be replacing the flag of one undemocratic and over-powerful bureaucracy located across a body of water with another?!

On the contrary, it would reflect our ongoing friendly relationship with the rest of Europe, as well as the hugely cosmopolitan vibe and culture of our beloved city. The EU flag adorns some buildings in Switzerland as well for example. We are above petty hostility and passive aggressive behaviour after all, aren't we.
