28. Flags are permitted although we are limited on where they can be displayed in terms of space available especially in home sections.
All banners must be accompanied by a British Standards zero spread of flames fire certificate. Flags on poles are allowed as long as they are no larger than 2m x 1m in size and the flag poles need to be no more than pencil thick. Crowd surfer flags are not allowed in the away section.
They should send details of the flag with the appropriate fire certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 5 working days before the game. We will then consult with Stadium Management and a decision will be given from there.
Banners must not contain foul language, be defamatory or contain political or offensive slogans and the club reserves the right to turn banners away if the content is felt to be offensive in anyway.
Generally we are flexible with banners but the main obstacle is the lack of space in the ground to display large banners especially in the home and away supporters sections.
