The Connexion asked online for views on the push to obligate French mairies to fly the EU flag [Editor’s note: MPs approved the idea but limited it to mairies with at least 1,500 residents, meaning 70% will be exempt].
We think EU visibility is very important.
When we lived in the UK there was little physical evidence of the huge support communities received from European funding, unlike our experiences in Ireland.
Would Brexit have happened if people had been more aware?

France is part of the EU and the EU is not only a common market, it is also a political project.
Consequently, flying both the French and European flags everywhere, including city and town halls, is logical.
