  • Description

    RHODESIA'S NEW GREEN AND WHITE FLAG FLEW OVER RHODESIA HOUSE IN LONDON TODAY (FRIDAY). THE FLAG, FIRST RAISED OVER SALISBURY, RHODESIA ON NOVEMBER 11, 1968, TO MARK THE THIRD ANNIVERSARY OF RHODESIA'S UNILATERAL DECLARATION ON INDEPENDENCE, WAS UNFURLED IN LONDON YESTERDAY (THURSDAY).

    A BRITISH FOREIGN AND COMMONWEALTH OFFICE SPOKESMAN SAID YESTERDAY THAT THE FLAG WAS ILLEGAL AND THAT THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT DID NOT RECOGNISE IT. THERE WAS NO ANSWER TO THE QUESTION AS TO WHETHER STEPS WOULD BE TAKEN TO REMOVE THE FLAG.

    A YOUNG MAN TODAY CLIMBED TO THE TOP OF RHODESIA HOUSE AND THREW THE NEW FLAG DOWN TO THE STREET. SHORTLY AFTERWARDS, HOWEVER, IT WAS REPLACED ON ITS FLAGSTAFF.

    THE NEW FLAG IS THE RESULT OF THE DECISION OF MR. IAN SMITH'S GOVERNMENT TO ABANDON OFFICIAL USE OF BRITAIN'S UNION JACK.
