Protocol for Flags, Silences and other marks of respect
Civic buildings are an important part of the local community, often acting as a focal point when local, regional or national events occur. This protocol provides information to residents of the district about how the Council will approach planned public displays of support.
Whilst specific public displays of condolence or respect cannot be predicted, they can however be planned for in general terms. This protocol will guide the council’s response to any such event. However, any national directive or protocol, such as that implemented upon the death of the monarch, will take priority over this protocol.
