Commonwealth Day: EU Flag Replaced With Commonwealth Flag In Gibraltar

The flag of the European Union at different points in Gibraltar has been lowered today and replaced by the flag of the Commonwealth. This is to mark Commonwealth Day which will be commemorated on Monday and which is a Public Holiday. It has been traditional for the Commonwealth flag to fly on that day over No 6 Convent Place, which is the seat of Government in Gibraltar.

However, this year the Government decided to expand that symbolic gesture by additionally flying the Commonwealth flag at the border, Princess Caroline’s Battery, the John Mackintosh Hall and Duke of Kent House as well.

If Spain uses veto to exclude Gibraltar from Brexit deal, the Spanish themselves would put at risk the rights of EU nationals, including Spaniards, in Gibraltar

Should anyone be surprised that at the Brexit talks this week, the EU came out supporting the Spanish position

When the EU offered Gibraltar over £30 million to try and gain support for sovereignty deal

Spain will not use the Brexit negotiations to pursue its sovereignty aspirations, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said yesterday during a press conference in which he also appeared to signal his government’s readiness to engage in dialogue with Gibraltar.

Asked about sovereignty and Brexit discussions relating to the Rock, Mr Rajoy spoke of future conversations “with” Gibraltar, rather than ‘about’ Gibraltar, although he did not elaborate.

If such engagement materialised it would be a significant development given the Partido Popular’s past reticence for direct contact with Gibraltar.

As EU approves Brexit transition guidelines, Rajoy hints at dialogue with Gibraltar – Gibraltar Chronicle

A ‘leaked’ Spanish document justifies the Gibraltar Government taking special restrictive measures if Spain maintains its Brexit crusade against Gibraltar, focusing on ‘the possibility of the Rock taking action against the rights of European citizens’.

The document was leaked from the Association of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises in La Linea (Apymell).

Apymell President Lorenzo Pérez, in response to PANORAMA questions, confirmed that the ‘internal’ document existed but was yet to be presented to the Cross-Frontier Group

SPANISH GOVERNMENT PUTS PRESSURE ON EU

“The striking coincidences of the document with the rhetoric from the government of Gibraltar does not remain in the number of workers or references to unemployment in the Campo de Gibraltar, but comes to accuse the Spanish Government that ‘has exerted and continues to exert enormous pressure on the EU (apparently even threatening the possibility of not signing the final Brexit agreements) in an attempt to broaden the scope of Paragraph 24”
