The Flags (Northern Ireland) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

These Regulations are made under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. They amend legislation which makes provision for when flags may be flown on government buildings and court houses in Northern Ireland. In particular the Regulations remove the requirement to fly the Union flag, and where a building has two flagpoles, the European flag, on Europe Day (May 9th).
