Giant EU flag vandalized in Prague

A large European Union flag erected in the centre of Prague to mark the Czech EU presidency has been damaged for the second time in a fortnight, Czech Television reported on Thursday. The flag was set alight late on Wednesday evening, said an employee of the emergency services. On New Year’s Day, somebody made a hole in the flag, which has been mounted on the giant Prague Metronome monument to mark the Czech Republic taking over from France at the helm of the EU.
