Flag flying and bell ringing at council buildings

Flags on council buildings in 2019

There are three masts from which we fly flags:

  1. Above main entrance of the Town Hall - exclusively used to fly the City flag
  2. Carfax Tower - Union flag on set occasions and Cross of St George on St George’s Day
  3. Above 1930s extension of Town Hall - for other occasions
