Scottish Flags Deemed ‘Offensive’ For Fire Engines.

This is one of those stories you need to re-read just to make sure it’s authentic.

The Daily Record is today reporting that a recent complaint was made to Aberdeen fire chiefs regarding the vinyl based Saltire flags which were stuck onto the front of two of their fire engines.

They were placed on the new vehicles to mark the merger of Scotland’s eight brigades into one, but the mere sight of the St Andrew’s cross on the fire engines enraged one member of public so much that he/she made a formal complaint and they were duly removed. It’s thought that the complaint was politically motivated as it’s been suggested that the person, (with far too much spare time on their hands), saw the flags as being a sign of ‘pro-independence’.

Really? The St Andrew’s cross is now offensive to people? Shall it now too find it’s way into the same bracket of offensive flags such as the Swastika, Confederate or White Power flags?
