Poll: Should the Catalan flag be flown over Dublin's City Hall?

A vote will be held this morning on whether the flag should be flown as a gesture of solidarity.

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL will vote today whether it should fly the Catalan flag over City Hall in solidarity with the people of Catalonia.

The region has declared itself independent from Spain, leading to Catalonia’s autonomy being revoked and its de facto leader being summoned to Spain’s High Court after flying out of the country.

Dublin City Council has flown foreign flags over City Hall before – most recently with the Palestinian flag, in solidarity solidarity with those in Palestine “living under occupation”.

So, do you think the Catalan flag should be flown over City Hall?

Poll Results:

No (10915)
Yes (6478)
I don't know (736)
