Flags, Identity, Culture and Tradition - have your say

You may be aware that the Commission on Flags, Identity, Culture and Tradition has been established as part of commitments made under the Stormont House and Fresh Start Agreements.

In order to inform its work, the Commission is now beginning the process of engagement to gather the views and opinions of those who wish to contribute from across our community.

We would like the opportunity to engage with the Section 75 Sector and would like to invite you to participate at one of these engagement meetings, details of which can be found below.

What sort of questions do we have?         

  • In your opinion how can we ensure that in Northern Ireland we develop a rich diverse community in which cultural expression can be celebrated?
  • Do you have any examples of positive practice in relation to display of flags, identity, culture and tradition that have been accepted in a positive manner by communities of different backgrounds and traditions?
  • What do you consider are the issues in respect of flags, identity, culture and tradition in your community or within Northern Ireland as a whole?
  • What barriers presently exist to making progress to become a society that understands and accepts different cultures and expressions of these?

We have a number of sectoral and public meetings taking place in the next coming months;
