Recognising Scotland in Europe

  • Submitted by: Fiona Hyslop, Linlithgow, Scottish National Party.
  • Date lodged: Tuesday, 28 January 2020
  • Motion reference: S5M-20625
  • Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Wednesday, 29 January 2020

That the Parliament notes that the European flag has been flown at Holyrood since 2004 as a symbol of membership of the family of European nations; recognises that Scotland and the UK will continue to be represented within the Council of Europe, and that the UK’s exit from the European Union will not change this; notes that the European flag was originally the flag of the Council of Europe and affirms Scotland's commitment to the aims of the Council of Europe to build peace and prosperity together, while respecting common values of democracy, human rights, the rule of law and diversity; recognises the importance of continuing to fly the European flag as a sign of support and solidarity with those EU nationals who have made Scotland their home, and directs the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body to ensure that the European flag continues to fly daily at the Parliament building.
