Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson wants EU flags down and British flags flown at the MOD
DEFENCE Secretary Gavin Williamson has ordered all EU flags be removed from MoD headquarters.
Sources said he was stunned to find them at the London HQ, including outside meeting rooms.
So he told officials to take down the blue flags adorned with 12 gold stars and replace them with Union Jacks to boost “British pride.”
An insider, said: “Gavin said he saw no reason why they should waste any time on delaying the removal of the EU flags.
He wants more British pride displayed around the building as Britain gets ready to quit the EU.”
The symbolic salvo comes despite his campaigning for Remain.
The source added: “He feels the Government has a duty to deliver Brexit for the 17 million who voted for it.”
It is believed there are a number of EU flags on each floor of the MoD’s Whitehall HQ — including outside key rooms where foreign top brass are entertained.
The Defence Secretary is currently under scrutiny over an office fling over a decade ago.
