Flying the European Union flag from council buildings is supported by the majority of our readers, the Post’s own online poll has revealed.

The blue and gold-starred flag sparked controversy after council leader Cllr Darren Rodwell took the decision to fly it alongside the union jack and the borough’s colours.

The decision raised objections from anti-Europe supporters.

In answer to the question “do you think the EU flag should fly from council buildings?” almost three-quarters of voters at 73 per cent (1,003) said yes.

Nearly a fifth (317) said no at 23pc while just 5pc (65) said they weren’t bothered either way.
