Downing Street has disclosed that the union flag will sit alongside the European flag on British driving licences. The new licences are hoped to be phased in from 2015.
Other countries have symbols, for instance Belgians have a bear on their licence. It is thought that the British people will welcome the change with a No 10 spokesman saying “People in this country are proud of our national symbol.”
There is some hesitation on having the symbol on all licences, with Northern Ireland drivers possible being exempt from having the symbol on their licence.
