I was in across the border for the first time in years yesterday and before I ask any questions I just have to say how great the scenery was in Derry, particularly the coast.
Anyway I was in 4 different counties, Antrim, Derry, Tyrone and Fermanagh and I was a little surprised how many towns and villages were covered in Union and Orange flags. Obviously I expected some but I didn't think it was that frequent the last time I was up.
Are the flags put up by local authorities?
And was there more than usual because it's not long after the 12th?
