Welsh Flag Banned From Olympic Games

[Daily Post] THE Welsh flag has been banned from official venues at the Beijing Olympics in a crackdown by Chinese authorities.

Supporters and competitors travelling to the Games face a strict ban on waving the Ddraig Goch in celebration.

Only the flags of the 205 Olympic nations, including Great Britain, can be taken into the showpiece arenas, according to “house rules” published by the organising committee for the Games.
