Sinn Féin councillor Paul Fleming has condemned the theft of a flag from an Orange hall in Eglinton.
“Flags and symbols should be treated with respect and the theft of this flag must be condemned.
“We want to create a culture of tolerance and actions like this do nothing to contribute to that.
“This is no different to the destruction of tricolours on loyalist bonfires.
“I hope this will not do anything to raise community tensions in the area and I would appeal for the return of this flag to its owners.” Ends/Críoch
