Interesting short speech by Senator (Ret,) Gary Hart at US Consulate tonight. Acknowledged value of listening and how flags issue here relates to that in USA citing confederate flag and South Carolina (as an example). I failed to bend his ear in diplomatic queue to chat. But he’s in good hands.
Sen. Hart was saying that the USA is not immune to flag disputes. The case of the state of South Carolina wanting to incorporate the contentious Stars and Bars in its state flag required compromise. This issue was picked up by Naomi Long in 2003, in response to articles by Billy Kennedy, and to which I also provided detail of the South Carolina example: https://mrulster.org/?s=confederate+flag
